Wiesn

 

By Florian Manert Munich, Germany

The Oktoberfest, in Bavaria called Wiesn, is the biggest festival worldwide. It has 14 beer tents where thousands of people can sit, stand or dance on the benches and tables. People from all around the world come there to celebrate together and have fun. It starts at the last weekend of September and takes place for two weeks. Not every beer brand can come there and sell their beer, only the big six Munich brands are allowed to present theirs. These are Hacker-Pschorr, Augustiner, Hofbräu, Löwenbräu, Paulaner and Spatenbräu.

But there are not only beer tents during Oktoberfest. You can get all kinds of sweets there, from apples with chocolate to roasted almonds. And if you love rollercoasters in all their different variations, you’re definitely going to love it. The scary haunted houses or the big wheel, where you have an excellent view over whole Munich, and the Power tower with a height of 70 meters are one of the attractions you can visit. So there are attractions for every age group.
