Munich Oktoberfest 2017

The Munich Oktoberfest 2017 has started


On a cold and wet Saturday the 184th Oktoberfest started at 12.00 promptly. This year is the longest Oktoberfest, as it finishes on Tuesday 3rd October due to a public holiday. See live video from the Oktoberfest.

Here are some images from the first week-end if you missed them. Many traditions stretching back to early days have made the modern Oktoberfest a must visit spectacle. There is must more than just drinking beer, the many souvenir stalls, grilled Steckelfisch, grilled chicken, and then there all the fun of the fair.

Hope you enjoy these images and will consider visiting or maybe book for next year. Maybe you would like to see the Hofbräu Tent during opening times
