Oans, zwoa… O’zapft is!
Last Sunday we decided to go to Munich to visit the Oktoberfest. From the Olympic Park, by the Marienplatz we arrived at the Oktoberfest in fullest splendor.
Have fun watching!
The Oktoberfest is the world’s largest folk Festival (beer festival and travelling funfair). Held annually in Munich, it is a 16-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. Locally, it is often simply called the Wiesn, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds (Theresienwiese)themselves. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the original Munich event.
Munich is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria, on the banks of the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg, with a population of around 1.5 million.
