Oktoberfest is the famous beer festival held annually in Munich, Germany. Since I was in Munich during the festival, I took my camera, rode the SBahn from my hotel to München Hackerbrücke station and walked all the way to Weisn where the festivities are in full swing.
Oktoberfest celebrations in Theresienwiese have been happening for a long time already. Sharing some history of the event, Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12 1810, and the citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates. The fields have been named Theresienwiese (“Therese’s meadow”) in honor of the Crown Princess and the locals have since abbreviated the field’s name to “Wies’n” or “Weisn” and the Oktoberfest festival was born.
München Oktoberfest 2011 officially started September 17, 2011 and lasted until October 3, 2011.
In the tradition of my free six cafe world cheats, my six new Philippine money, my six free wow mounts, my six Tagalog love quotes and my free six video posts, I am posting some six photos taken from Oktoberfest 2011.
Hippodrom’s colorful beer tent seems to stand out imho.
HB Festzelt is next
and last but not the least is my (and hopefully my #security #infosec friends’) favorite: Hacker Festzelt
All beer tents pics for now. I’ll check if I can come up with Oktoberfest 2011 part 2 post to include the biergartens, rides, food stuff and other views.
Hope you like my Oktoberfest 2011 photos and blog update.
