This fair is not to be missed! Part of the appeal is that it is genuine and traditional, not just a tourist attraction. It has a very long history - it was mentioned in the "Satzungsbuch" of the city of Munich of 1310 or 1312.
There's a large section with stalls selling antiques (also some antique furniture) and all kinds of interesting old junk. You can easily spend the whole day rummaging around. Here you can find great travel memoriabilia from stalls selling crockery, pots and pans, kitchen gadgets, knives, scissors, all kinds of brushes, socks, used Lederhosen, old musical instruments, wooden toys, hand-crafted jewellery, cheap umbrellas, herbs and spices, baskets, glass marbles, rugs, and more! If you're interested in serious treasure hunting, my advice is to go when the weather is looking a bit dodgy. If you go on a beautiful sunny day it will be packed and you'll have to push your way through the crowds to look at things.
