We found a place to sit in the Wursthall, where we enjoyed our beer and food, while listening to a really great band. We expected German music, and it all sounded somewhat like that, but they played quite a variety of styles, including blue grass and Stars & Stripes Forever, complete with piccolo. It was a very enjoyable evening, not as crowded on Friday evenings, apparently, as it is on Saturday evenings. There were lots of people there, many of whom were wearing strange hats, and some of whom were carrying tall
stacks of empty
plastic beer pitchers. Despite all the beer drinking going on the vast majority of the people were very well behaved (we did see one escorted out by police, but he didn't look drunk, so who knows what he was up to).
The facilities here are nice. The restrooms are big enough to handle the crowds with very little waiting. This is the only place I've ever been where the line in the ladies' room
is for the sinks!
They have a website: www.wurstfest.com; they already have dates scheduled for the next three years. If you're in the area, it's a fun event to go to.
