Munich Oktoberfest Sept 21st – Oct. 6th

The largest beer festival, the Oktoberfest, begins today in Munich. It  takes place at the Wiesn just like the past 180 years. The festival will end on October 6th.

If you are interested in seeing the Mayor of Munich, Christian Ude, tap the first beer’s barrel and say “O’Zapft is!” (It is tapped), you have to go to the Schottenhamel tent at noon today.
