The Stuttgart Beer Festival (locally known as Cannstatter Volksfest) is the world’s 2nd biggest beer festival with over 4 million people a year visiting the event, held in Stuttgart.
With a similar feel to Oktoberfest – beer tents, traditional food and attire etc – it began in 1818, just 8 years after Oktoberfest. It’s an amazing event and a real hidden gem – hardly any tourists visit and few people outside of Germany know about it, making it a truly unique experience to visit.
Best of all, it is held at about the same time as Oktoberfest, ending 1 week later. So you can see the best of Germany: the beer tents of Munich and Stuttgart.

It’s all about variety today, as we’ll visit a number of beer tents and some of their unique little side-bars (incl. the rotating bar at the top of the Sonja Merz tent).
