Location and Venue

Food Menu




The Schwabenhof Pavilion

The Schwab is a German American cultural society - the largest German ethnic group in the state. The Donauschwaben—“ethnic Germans that lived outside of Germany in the Slavic regions of Eastern Europe predominately along the Danube River,” as the group describes itself. They have a huge soccer program.

Food Menu for 2016:

This is the 2016 festival menu but we expect it to be similar for 2017.

  1. Spanferkel (Roast Suckling Pig) with German potato salad and coleslaw $14
  2. Half rotisserie chicken with German potato salad and coleslaw $10
  3. Spanferkel and rotisserie chicken combo with German potato salad and coleslaw $12
  4. Brats served with chips and a pickle $5
  5. House Specialty Rollbraten served with chips and pickle $7

The Schwabenhof will provide an ample amount of food but, as with any event where there is no advance head count, any of the menu items may run out at any point. They do their best to accommodate all attendees.


Location and Travel Information

The Schwabenhof is located at N56W14750 Silver Spring Drive, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin 53051.

This is in the Northwest suburbs of Milwaukee in the Village of Menomonee Falls, 2 miles west of US-45 on Silver Spring Drive. GPS navigation systems and on-line mapping often do not get this address right no matter how you enter it, though they are getting better. If you are driving to the festival please use one of our maps linked below and the directions provided or check them against your navigation system prior to the event.

There is free parking available in the Schwabenhof parking lot but it always fills as we compete with several soccer games that are at the same time. There is little or no street parking on any street adjacent to the Schwabenhof. The police department typically puts out no parking signs on the streets during the festival for public safety reasons. Take the shuttle bus if possible.



  • Take US-45 to the Silver Spring Dr West exit.
  • Take Silver Spring west approximately 1.5 miles to just west of Lilly Road.
  • The Schwabenhof is on the North side of the road at the intersection of Enterprise Ave.
  • We'll have a World of Beer sign under the Schwabenhof sign.
