It was originally a fair in connection with an ecclesiastical celebration, attracting junk dealers, quacks and performers. The meaning of the word, however, changed over the centuries, and today it simply means "fair". "Auer" refers to its location in Munich's borough "Au".These type of fairs have a long tradition in Munich. They were mentioned for the first time in 1310; in 1796, the Electoral Prince Karl Theodor granted the suburb Au the right to hold a fair twice a year, and since those days there have been "Dulten" regularly. Since 1905, there have been three such fairs a year on Mariahilfplatz.
