Oktoberfest – Munich
MID TO LATE SEPTEMBER.
AH BEER, GLORIOUS BEER.
If you happen to be partial to the amber ale, as millions of us are, then Oktoberfest is known to you. If you go to join the fun, you’ll discover it’s the beating heart of the beer-swilling world.
TELL US IT’S NOT ALL BOOZY LADS STUMBLING AROUND IN LEDERHOSEN.
Over six million visitors turn up to be a part of the festivities so chances are you’ll run into a few boozy lads but they won’t dominate the fun.
WE IMAGINE THAT WE MIGHT BE NURSING A HANGOVER AT SOME STAGE.
In that case, eat yourself out of a hole with traditional treats like hendl (roast chicken), schweinebraten (roast pork), or schweinshaxe (grilled ham hock).
ALRIGHT, WE’RE BACK ON THE HORSE.
Before you get into doing your bit with the nearly eight million litres of beer that is drunk here each year, have a go on the amusement rides and sideshow games. Your eye might be slightly out later.
