Pullman City, the living Western town
Easily accessible via the A3 between Deggendorf and Passau. Since 1997 children and adults have been able to experience the Lower Bavarian "Wild West" here - archery, gold panning, pony or quarter horse riding, live country music, line dancing and campfire romance.
During the season from spring to late autumn, a varied, non-violent show programme with cowboys, Indians and free-range bison, trick riders, knife throwers, lasso throwers, horse trainers and magicians is shown daily. The highlight every day is the American History Show - educational, exciting and funny all at the same time.
The heart of Pullman City is the authenticity area. There the "hobbyists" from near and far have built themselves simple wooden huts, in order to represent the history of America and live it with passion. The Little Pullman adventure playground and the Adventure Trail, a low ropes course for climbing, dangling and balancing, are located on the 200,000 square metre, hilly and partly-wooded area of the Western town. During the holidays and weekends there is a children's event with handicrafts, games and torchlit walks.
Events such as the Country Music and Rockabilly Festivals in spring and autumn, the US Car Meeting with up to 19,000 visitors in May, the new Quad Meeting in June, the Harley Stampede in early July and the Western Horse Festival in August round off the offer. The German-American Christmas Market with St Nicholas and Santa Claus traditionally takes place on the Advent weekends.
The Pullman City holiday park, the noble "Palace Hotel" in the main street, the log cabins and lodges with campfire sites, the overnight teepees and authentic tents as well as the attached camping site offer more than 500 overnight accommodation options.
The many restaurants, bars and cafés invite you to eat, drink and linger.
The managing directors of the Western town are Claus Six and Ernst Grünberger, two entrepreneurs from the region. Together with four other shareholders, they have been managing the fortunes of Pullman City since 2011. The Western town began in 1997, as a result of the Western Horse festival. The founder and ideas man was the passionate Western horse rider and visionary Peter Meier (+).
