Stuttgart beer festival 2003

I have been asked to get some information for a group of around twenty who hope to go to the beer festival next year. We are hoping to do Wednesday to Monday which will give us five nights in the 'tents'. I was there a few years ago from Sunday to Wednesday and we had no problem getting into any of the 'tents' but I know the weekend is a totally different ballgame. I have been looking at some of the websites the last few nights to see about reservations but I would love to hear from some local experts who could give us a few tips. Hoping to book flights shortly and don't want to go there and be left outside - is it easy enough to book for a party of twenty and if so how far ahead should we do it?

The Belfast beer festival starts next week so that will give us a bit of early training!!

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/tips.

You should mention which one you will be attending. The Spring beer festival in late April to early May is the world's largest Spring beer festival ( www.stuttgarter-fruehlingsfest.de ). The one in late September to early October is the world's second largest beer festival ( www.cannstatter-volksfest.de ). Both websites should have tent information where you can make your inquiries about bookings. Thursday through Saturday evenings the tents are most busy, and if the Fall festival, October 2 is also busy as the following day is a national holiday. I would always book places as early as possible, as tents will have yearly reservations for groups and might be hard to book.

Thanks for that - we will be attending (hopefully) in the first week of October so will need to keep that holiday in mind.

Thanks,

If you are unsuccessful with reserving spaces in a tent, can you still buy beer outside or in the area of the volksfest?

I believe that most of the places selling food also sell alcoholic beverages including beer. The tents usually also have some outdoor seating.

If you are still going in October, tickets usually go on sale a three to four months ahead of time but you have to be quick. They sell out within two to three days. A good tent is Gockelesmaier (Göckelesmaier Festbetriebs GmbH
