The Munich Oktoberfest is the biggest Volksfest in the world. Every year averagely five to six million people come to celebrate the Oktoberfest in Munich. In 2014 two friends of mine and me made that trip to this incredible event 🙂
For us it has been the first time at the Oktoberfest in Munich. As you can see, we were motivated by great anticipation. The drive lasted around seven hours. Finally, we were happy to reach our destination. Christian did a great job ! 🙂
In Munich we took the metro to have a look at the city and a place for dinner.
Preparing for Oktoberfest
The next morning we were invited for breakfast at one of Munichs’ oldest students’ fraternity. Bavarian Sausage with sweet mustard sauce, wheat beer and bread are typical for such an alternative breakfast 😉
Fortunately, we were invited to the VIP tribune at the Schottenhamel. We even had a first line place to follow the mayor hitting the first barrel. After that he spoke the tradtitional words “ozapft is” and the Oktoberfest was officially opened.

Prices + How to order + Advices
The drinks cost around 10 Euro for 1 liter. But you have to watch out. The beer has a very high level of alcohol. You can order a beer only at your desk. So you have to take place at a desk to order something.
The waiter have their areas and are very strict. Don’t try to argue with anyone from the stuff. Many people want to take place in the festival tents. So the security stuff does not hesitate to kick you out. The Oktoberfest is organized very well. To avoid disputes and brutality they have to be strict and it works.
We had a very friendly and patiently waiter. The atmosphere was harmonious and exuberant. After some hours we decided to go out and have a look at the rides and attractions on the Theresienwiese.
We took some rides and even visited the ghost train station – two of us 🙂
The morning started early. Around 10 we were on the Oktoberfest and left around 8 in the evening. It does not sound long, but we felt exhausted and happy to go back home preparing for the next day… Finally, the Oktoberfest is an event you have to see! For me it was a pleasant experience and a great weekend in Munich.
Special thanks to Jessica, who made this unforgettable event possible !!! 🙂
