Everything You Need To Know About The Oktoberfest In
Munich
The Oktoberfest in Munich is all about drinking Bavarian
beer, consuming great local cuisine and indulging in
great culture. Imagine singing along with tens of
thousands of people accompanied by 'oom pah bands',
while locals and tourists alike clad in lederhosen and
dirndl dresses dance on tables. These facets combine to
make this one adventure you don't want to miss.
More commonly referred to as Beerfest, Oktoberfest in
Munich is a 16 day festival celebrating what else, but
beer.
One would presume with a name like Oktoberfest it
would be held in October, but it actually commences
each year in the middle of September and concludes on
the first weekend of October.
Can you believe that more than 6 million litres of beer is
consumed during the 16 days festivities? With around 6
million people from across the globe attending that's 1
litre for every man, woman and child who attends.
So how did this massive drinking session come about I
hear you ask? Well funnily enough it all came about
because of a wedding just over 200 years ago. Back then
all the residents of Munich were invited to the wedding
of Crown Prince Ludwig, which was held on the fields in
front of the city gates. As part of the festivities horse
races marked the close of the event. This was seen as a
celebration for the whole of Bavaria and the following
year they decided to run the horse races again. This was
the beginning of what we now know today as
Oktoberfest. The festival was eventually lengthened and
moved to commence in September to allow for better
weather conditions.
What can you do there? Drink the best beer in the world
of course. There are currently 14 large tents and 20 small
tents at Oktoberfest. The tents themselves are non-
permanent structures that are constructed for and only
used during the festival. All the beer tents play different
types of music and have entertainment to keep the
crowds buzzing.
The Oktoberfest site includes numerous amusement
rides, schnapps tents, plenty of traditional Bavarian
delicacies like pork knuckles, bratwurst sausages, roast
chicken, potato/bread dumplings and of course pretzels.
What sort of beer do they have at Oktoberfest? The beer
is some of the finest lager varieties in the wold and to be
classified as Oktoberfest beer it must be brewed within
the city limits of Munich and must conform to to the
German Purity Law.
The price of a 1 litre stein (or Mass in German) is around
8 to 9 Euros. However, always remember that if you
want your server to return it is customary to tip them, so
generally allow 10 Euro's for a beer.
