The Oktoberfest in pictures
The Munich Oktoberfest starts off with a colorful parade through the town where the ‘Wiesenwirten’, the tent hosts i.e. the breweries march through the inner city. There are bands.
Watch the horse drawn carts with beer barrels and people in traditional clothes.
Finding the Oktoberfest is easy, just get to the Hauptbahnhof (central railway station) and follow the crowds.
The tents are large (some truly huge), loud, and have a mad Oktoberfest atmostphere. The ~7% beer in 1 litre jugs helps.
