Servus ihr Buam und Madl, it´s time to visit one of the worlds largest fairs - the incredible Oktoberfest!!! It lasts only 2 weeks (including 3 weekends) and therefore the time is quite limited. Because of that we´ll meetup on the first Oktoberfest-monday Sept. 20th to check out whats going on on the 200th birthday of this festival (this year!!!).
The plan: The main intension is to walk around and experience the unique atmosphere, see all the different rides and might try one of the delicious Wiesn-Schmankerl ;-) ... after that we could try to get a beer. Read below, why it´s not thaaat easy.
Getting beer For some of us it´ll be the first time visiting the Oktoberfest. You have to know the the beer tents are often very (over-)crowded in the evening (especially on weekends) and it may happen that they are closed for new people. Thus, we have to see whether or not we can enter a tent this monday. Officially the waitresses are only allowed to serve beer to people when they have a seat. Some waitresses are not really strict, but having a seat is always better.
Cloth A looooot of people will wear the traditional bavarian outfit (Lederhosn or Dirndl) ... or the corresponding modern interpretation of it ;-) I will wear my Lederhosn .... and I appreciate others doing the same, hehehe!
How to meet As usual I will send out some details on "how-to-meet" in advance. We´ll meet at 6.30pm and it´ll be in close walking distance to the festival area - U-Bahn station Schwanthaler Höhe - since it´s not too crowded over there. Feel free to post comments or questions. Pfüati ... and see you soon, Till ;-) PS.: Click
