Our Full Day at Oktoberfest in Pictures
Our full day at Oktoberfest was one of the best days of the trip. Here is our day, in pictures:
|Since we didn't have a reservation, we had to get there early...very|
early. Therefore, the entire festival grounds were empty at 7:30.
|Of course we weren't the only ones to get their early. There was a line of|
about 200 people in front of us, which was actually pretty good for us.
For 90 minutes we waited but it was worth it to get a full table.
|The tent we chose was the Hacker tent which is known for young|
German locals. This is the view from our table.
|We of course had to dress up. A trip to Oktoberfest|
was not complete without a trip to the lederhosen store.
|Prost, the first round was served. A stein had about 3 beers in it|
and is twice as strong so it is important to pace yourself.
|The food of choice is of course pretzels but white sausage as well.|
You have to peel the casing off which you can see
Tom and Andrew doing.
|The waitresses can carry up to ten beers at a time which is incredible.|
They are actually flown in for the event and paid a ton.
|Before the band goes on, many people will stand on a table and|
try to chug a stein to the cheers of the entire tent.
|Our whole group at the table.|
|More of us showed up later in the day.|
|The traditional German band comes on mid day and this is when|
the tent gets rowdy. Everyone gets up to dance and sing and it lasts
|By sun down most of our table was taken over|
by friendly strangers as Oktoberfest got the best
of all of us.
