Four days of sunshine, but no heat: this time there were dream conditions at the Fürstenfeld Garden Days. For four days, visitors cavorted on the monastery grounds.
Fürstenfeldbruck – The fantastic weather attracted 35,000 visitors. The strongest day was Sunday, when around 12,000 people strolled across the monastery grounds, enjoyed the sun in deck chairs, listened to the music, let themselves be driven across the Amper Canal by the volunteer fire brigade youth and stocked up on all kinds of things around the green oasis.
"We would like to have the weather again next year," says organizer Martin Lohde. He had hoped that visitor numbers would return to pre-Corona levels. True, that didn't quite work out. Nevertheless, Lohde is satisfied with the response to the anniversary edition: because the Italian Night as a magnet has been omitted. Despite the weather-related uncertainty factor, it had always attracted some additional guests to Fürstenfeld.
But even without Italian flair, the visitors were offered a lot. In addition to the many stalls, there was enough space for the children to play and the adults to relax. The musical contributions have created a nice atmosphere, says Lohde. The exhibitors were also largely satisfied. The team thanked eleven, who have been at the Garden Days for 20 years, during a small anniversary evening.

The Ochsenwiese, which traditionally serves as a parking lot, was twice full, so that a meadow was added to the American football field. So the rush could be coped with well. He will take this experience and a few small points with him for the preparation of the next Fürstenfeld Garden Days.
