Everywhere it smells of Bavarian sausages, gingerbread and mulled wine. Here, you can buy glass baubles, nativity figures and many traditional craft products. In East Bavaria, there are Christmas markets in almost every large town. Exceptional Christmas markets, however, are the "floating" Christmas market in Vilshofen, situated on a river cruiser on the Danube, the Christmas market in the Thurn and Taxis Castle in Regensburg, the Christmas market on the grounds of the Kuchlbauer brewery in Abensberg, the Christmas market in the Hauzenberg quarry in the Bavarian Forest, and the "Winter Western Wonderland" in the leisure and theme park at Pullman City, the “living Western Town” near Passau. 3 ... in the brewery Kuchlbauer 1 “Floating” Christmas market: www.schwimmender-christkindlmarkt.de 2 Christmas market in the Thurn and Taxis Castle: www.thurnundtaxis.de/en 3 Christmas market at the Kuchlbauer brewery: www.kuchlbauer.de/en 4 Hauzenberg quarry: https://granitzentrum.de/granitweihnacht/impressionen 5 "Winter Western Wonderland" in the leisure and theme park at Pullman City: www.pullmancity.de/en-US 40 www.ostbayern-tourismus.de

Topics: Culture and tradition 3 Spearing the Dragon in Furth Festivals and celebrations Traditions and celebrations are an integral part of everyday life in East Bavaria. Every year, 1.4 million visitors come to Straubing to celebrate with beer and pretzels at Bavaria's second largest Volksfest (a traditional festival with fun fair) after the famous Oktoberfest in Munich. The East Bavarian Festivals are also impressive for their re-enactment of historical events. First and foremost, the Landshut Wedding, one of the largest openair performances in Europe which takes place every 4 years. And in Furth, the Dragon Slaying Festival (Drachenstich) uses the world´s largest walking robot, a 15-metre-long, firebreathing dragon! The festival takes place in August every year, and the dragon can also be visited in the summer months (between Easter and October) in his lair. An extraordinary festival is the Chinese Carnival in Dietfurt an der Altmühl. The festival has a very long tradition and is unique in Germany. Up to 20,000 visitors come to Dietfurt every year to witness this spectacle, with many visitors dressing up in Chinese costumes. A concert hall with an outstanding acoustic, which attracts well-known artists and guests from all of the world, is located in Blaibach in the Bavarian Forest. 2 Landshut Wedding 1 Gäubodenfest in Straubing: https://gäubodenvolksfest.de 2 Landshut Wedding: www.landshuter-hochzeit.de 3 Dragon Slaying Festival in Furth: www.drachenstich.de/index.php/english 4 Chinese Carnival: www.dietfurt.de/chinesenfasching 5 Blaibach Konzerthaus: konzert-haus.de www.ostbayern-tourismus.de 41
