Forest festival

The Schliersee Forest Festival is a real Bavarian tradition. Every year in the middle of August it takes place and starts with a huge procession. It starts at the main railway station in Schliersee and ends inside the beer hall at the forest fairground. The locals like to wear their traditional Bavarian costumes. You can see many kinds of dirndl dresses and leather trousers. The procession is led by the Schliersee marching band and the mayor.

Every guest will find a place to sit inside the spacious beer hall. You will meet locals, other guests from around the world, young and old during the so called „Frühschoppen” (morning pint). And in the afternoon or in the evening you can eat a Bavarian „Brotzeit”, grilled chicken, barbecue specialities and a „Mass” beer.  

Even children will have a good time. They can play as long as the like at the playground nearby the forest fairground.
