Auer Dult (Fair in Au) is a traditional market held three times per year near Mariahilfplatz in the district of Au, conveniently located in the city center, near the Deutsche Museum.

Historically the fair dates back to 1796, but in these times, it was only sporadically held. Since 1905 however it has been regularly run, with the exception of the war years.

Today it is known for its crockery market - the biggest in Europe - where new and old pots, pans and porcelain are bought and sold for the duration of the fair. The market opens at 9am, and continues until 8pm.

In addition to this market, the fare is also a Folks Festival. There are Rides, performances and of course, beer tents and gardens. In some ways the fare could be likened with a small Oktoberfest.

The first festival of the year is known as the Maidult, the second as the Jakobidult, and the last of the year as the Kirchweihdult. All festivals take place during the warmer seasons, however it has been the case in the past that it has snowed at both the first and third festival's of the year.

The festival lasts 9 days, and is usually held at the end of April into May, the end of July into August and the middle to the end of October.

See the table below for the dates up until 2010.
