Each year, on the third Sunday in August, we host the oldest mountain celebration in the Bavarian Forest at the Großer Arber.
Since 1965 the Arber parish fair has taken place on the penultimate Sunday in August at the Arber Chapel below the summit of the Großer Arber.
Visitors spread themselves across the Arber summit for the service (10:30am start).
It then moves directly on to both mountain huts (the Eisensteiner Hütte and the Arberschutzhaus) below the cable car.
These locations host a festival of colours with music, singing and dancing, which is given a special touch by the colourful costumes and every year makes this day on the summit of the Bavarian Forest an unforgettable experience for holidaymakers in particular.
