An Adventure A Day

Because "life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all" – Helen Keller

Sunday’s overcast morning may have transitioned to a rainy afternoon, but we managed to fit in an early visit to the Regensburger Dult before the weather turned.

According to the website, the Dult, has occurred in Regensburg since the 10th century as a combination of a market and a fest. It is a much beloved tradition, we arrived fairly early and parking was still a problem to find. We ended up paying 5 Euro to pay in a private lot.

We entered through the market area, and since the rides weren’t open, we decided to explore the vendor’s area. Many of the items we found were typical at any special market, but we enjoyed walking through the Trachtn-Bäda – they had a lovely collection of Dirndls, Lederhosen, and all manner of accessories. Another great stop was the Sußie Paradies, just walking into this store was a treat, but the chocolates were pretty tasty.

This vendor had a really nice selection of traditional clothing.

It's not a Fest without the Lebkuchen hearts!

We had a lovely lunch of wursts and schnitzel at the hahnZehlt , while we listened to the live music of the German band. It is a lively bustling place for to stop for a pause, and they even have someone walking around the tent selling giant pretzels.

The hahnZelt is a great place to stop for lunch - they have a pretzel girl and live music!

The Dult is open from 11 am – 11 pm, and runs until 25 May. For a full schedule of events, check out the Dult website.

This is probably one of the prettiest Ferris Wheels I've ever seen.
