On Thursday night we made the rather spontaneous decision to head down to Munich on Saturday to checkout Oktoberfest.
“Have you been to Oktoberfest?” is a pretty common question asked, which I can now finally answer ‘yes’ to.
“Are you going to go again?” Probably not. I’m not really a “crowd” person, so I don’t find too much entertainment in streets packed full of drunk people. The beer is overpriced. The lines are long and you’re lucky if you can get into one of the brewery tents (though granted, we were there on a weekend which makes things worse); we never did. Germany really has so much more to offer and way cooler festivals that I think it’s unfortunate that Oktoberfest is the thing to do in Germany for visitors coming here. Though I guess its a good thing to at least have seen once.
And remember: Oktober fest is in September. if you show up in October looking to party, you’re a bit too late…
