Oktoberfest beer to enjoy it big

ADS

Two days only and shall begin on the esplanade of the Theresienwiese in Munich the most famous festival in the world dedicated to this popular drink.


Bavaria has the best beer in the world, but not by chance, but by its purity. Water, barley and hops are only three ingredients with which it is made, and so it has done since the sixteenth century. Many already know the secret and seen the popular appeal, the Oktoberfest is the best time to see for yourself. A fun festival full of German folk music, dances, folklore and traditions which this year celebrates the 22 September to 7 October its 179th edition and pays tribute to the most popular drinks in German.
For beginners, once there are two acts that should not be missed: the opening, when the mayor of Munich opens the tent Schottenhamel the first keg party the traditional cry O 'zapft is! (Now Open!), And the parade of costumes, the first Sunday. And a warning: the Oktoberfest is not just a holiday where people drink beer and eat sausages, is also a party family, with rides, roller coasters, Ferris wheels, music and entertainment for all ages.


Much of the festival takes place in the tents set up on the Theresienwiese and although entry is free to them, it is best to reserve seats in advance. Failure to achieve one of the biggest also be tested in the medium or even small, where the atmosphere is more homey and small. Usually ten tables so if not filled will be shared, which is good way to start a conversation and learn and enjoy more than Oktoberfest.
should also reach the Oktoberfest as soon as possible: weekdays before 14:30 hours and weekend mornings. If you arrive late you run the risk of losing the reservation or find tents filled ... and only serve beer if you have a seat! The beer this year than 9 € a liter-and food stamps are available only in the tents.
booths encompassing Major Oktoberfest correspond to the six major beer brands: Paulaner, Spaten, Hofbräu, Hacker-Pschorr, Löwenbräu and Augustiner. Each has its own style but they all live music, serving specialties of Bavarian and German pork and beer runs in abundance. The Löwenbräu-Festhalle tent, marked by a tower 37 meters high where you can see a lion roaring and drinking beer, offers hospitality in an atmosphere something crazy and it is rare to find people of any nationality alongside drinking with players from local football team 1860 Munich, known as the Lions of Munich. The Fischer-Vroni tent is the only one where you can taste a real Bavarian specialty: fresh fish marinated kebabs cooking on charcoal and the famous Steckerlfisch (smoked mackerel). While the Augustiner-Festhalle, which is said to have the best waitresses Oktoberfest, is famous for its great atmosphere.
During the weekend the Theresienwiese turns into a big rock festival with live music and thousands of people dancing. The groups propose alternate music ranging from classics to current pieces, all interspersed with typical German folklore songs.


Once at the Oktoberfest be seized to make the occasional must-see in Munich. For those looking for parks, the English Garden or the Riemer Park and if you are traveling with children, the Tierpark Hellabrunn, one of the largest zoos in the world. Amazing, of course, the Marienplatz with the Old Town Hall with the new and the familiar chime; Peterskirche, the Romanesque church of the city's oldest and Heiliggeistkirche, a baroque church next to the most popular food market of Munich, Viktualienmarkt. Also the Frauenkirche cathedral, and the Residenz and Schloss Nymphenburg palace, which was the summer residence of the rulers of Bavaria.
