Beer, tits and lots of fun. This is Oktoberfest in Munich. Plain and simple. 7 million people around the world in one place, the Theresienwiese, 42 hectares of farmland near the city center (that’s what the locals call the Oktoberfest Wiesn).
Oktoberfest 2019 starts on Saturday September 21st.
If you want to attend the opening ceremony at noon, the Schottenhamel tent is the place to be. The official ceremony looks like this: The mayor of Munich has the honor of tapping the first keg of Oktoberfest beer. This is not an easy task – it requires some strength and skill for multiple hits with the racquet. Every year, people eagerly await how many hits it takes the mayor to open the first barrel.
The best score is 2. After that, you can hear “O’zapft is!” (“It’s open!”), which is the sign that the beer festival is officially open. That means the party is on! And it lasts until October 7th.
Beer served hours:
Opening day: 12:00 p.m. – 10:30 p.m
Weekdays: 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 p.m
Weekends and holidays: 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 p.m
Tents open late: Käfers and Weinzelt open until 1:00 am
Even if this beer festival in Germany lasts 16 days – don’t be crazy and plan a stay of no more than 3 days. You won’t make it (unless you’re planning a complete blackout).
The catch is – Oktoberfest beer is much stronger than regular, with 6-9% alcohol. You can’t choose smaller or bigger bottles, you get a Mass (1 liter of beer) and it will cost you something between €10.70 and €11.50. The Oktoberfest is not a fast race, but a marathon. Plan your time carefully if you want to remember it at all.
Here’s the recipe for survival – 1 liter of beer, 1 liter of water, eat something, and more beer, water, food… Speaking of Oktoberfest food, traditional Bavarian fare isn’t healthy. But they are so incredibly tasty and go perfectly with beer. You just have to try: Roast chicken, knuckle of pork, sausages (especially white sausage and currywurst) and of course pretzels – an Oktoberfest classic.
Admission to all beer tents is free and you do not need to reserve a table. However, if you don’t want to fight for the free tables, you should make a reservation. The 16 small and large beer tents offer space for 119,000 guests. It may seem like a tough decision on where to go, but any tent is a good choice and you’ll have a great time, so don’t worry. Everywhere there is a lot of beer, good music and beautiful German girls. Remember that the weekends are very crowded. Therefore it is more difficult to find a free table, especially at night.
Oktoberfest beer and food are pure joy. But this festival wouldn’t be as great without the fun rides and sexy girls in Bavarian Dirndl.
You don’t have to wear Oktoberfest costumes (Lederhosen for men and Dirndl for girls), but it’s a tradition and it’s fun. And the best – dirndl really emphasizes all female attributes. So don’t miss out on drinking and eating, but for the real joy, find some Oktoberfest girls and have fun. You can do this before Oktoberfest in Munich if you want to be sure you are in good hands.

The Oktoberfest is a unique event. Don’t miss it. You only have to try it once – you will keep coming back.
