Munich
Oktoberfest

There simply aren't enough superlatives to describe Munich's world-famous Oktoberfest. Held on the Wies’n fairground from the middle of September to the beginning of October, the festival is opened with the traditional cry of "O'zapft is" (the barrel is tapped).

Fun on tap
Year after year the Oktoberfest attracts millions of visitors from all over the world to the Theresienwiese. Beer tents and fairground rides as far as the eye can see guarantee an exuberant atmosphere for a whole two weeks. Experience the real Germany of traditional music and costumes, wurst, pretzels, and an inexhaustible supply of the finest beer in the world.
