Let the Beer Party Commence! - Oktoberfest in Germany


Oktoberfest is the world’s biggest beer festival and German folk festival where musical bands and magnificent parades open the party. Celebrating its 181th commencement in 2014, the beer festival attracts more than six million people annually to Munich, Bavaria. The festival is also known as one of the world’s top three funfairs. During the celebration, there is excessive food, music, and, of course, beer specially brewed for the Wiesn, as the locals say.

People cuddled up in about thirty small and big tents; whether you are dancing or laughing there is always a giant beer mug in hands. The mug, Maßkrug, is specially designed for the event. This 1L volume beer stein may seem intimidating at first, but once the party begins you can’t ask for the better size.

Funded by Munich’s best beer company Bräu since the 19th century, Oktoberfest puts up the tents three months prior to the festival to welcome its beer lovers. Among three hundred tents that are set up, the biggest one can hold over 10,000 people creating the perfect place for the festival.

One Point


One thing to keep in mind. As its number of participants and beer consumption grew annually, however, to prevent further accidents Oktoberfest has adopted “Quite Hours” since 2005. Partying and drinking is part of the game, but also is being cultivated and mindful of rest of the people from all over the world.

During the beer fest, the entire Munich turns into a giant beer hall from 80 different entertainments such as horse ride, marry-go-round, and rollercoaster to circus, pantomime, movies, concerts to suit everyone’s need regardless of age.

A quick note on the side


There are six major beer companies in Germany, so make sure to check out beer from each one of them. Especially keep an eye on Augustiner, the one with longest tradition, and Paulaner, where they first brewed their beer in the medieval knight monastery.

Roasted chicken called Brathendl and white sausage Weißwurst are must-try’s. From traditional German cuisines to beautiful side dishes like pies and donuts will maximize beer consumption, so forget about diet and carry enough cash for your stomach.
