If you're going in September, plan your way to München in the end of the Month to get the chance to go to Oktoberfest! Even if you're not a beer fan, it's worth the visit! An hilarious party with traditional popular/ Schlager music, all dressed with bavarian clothing. Something you won t forget for sure!

The most iconic and popular celebration in Germany! It's all about beer and Ein Prosit! Great ambiance and lots of fun! More than 8 million people from all around the world in 12 days of extensive party!

For Germans, Oktoberfest often involves heading to the beer halls after work and taking in the festive atmosphere a few days over the course of the festival. For tourists, it usually means spending an entire day (or three) on the festival grounds. I would highly recommend picking out one or two beer halls - my favorite is the Hofbrau-Festzelt - and hanging around there for a while, since it gets difficult to find a seat later in the day. And remember to enjoy all the festival rides!

Oktoberfest in Munich has always been on my bucket list, and I am glad to say I finally checked it off this year! Each tent has a different "personality" and decor inside, but they are all super crowded so you have to stake out a spot early. I personally visited both the Hippodrom (known for being a yuppie tent) and the Augustiner beer garden. Outside the tents, there is basically a giant carnival with rides (including full-sized rollercoasters), games and lots of food. If you go, you should definitely rent a dirnl/lederhosen outfit -- you'll have great photos and lots of fun memories that way! (Not to mention the locals also wear those outfits, so you won't look out of place at all).

It started out as a big party celebrating what would be the unhappy marriage of a Bavarian royal couple. Today it's the biggest carnival in the world.
In 2009 I was lucky enough to take in Oktoberfest. It was far grander than any American imitation. The beer is poured by the liter. They roast whole oxen. The dirndls come in all colors from white to hot pink but always low cut.

Well its is simple. If you love state fair atmosphere and BEER you going to love this international event. Just step into any big beer vendor tent and find a fraulein (waitress) and they will sit you down with complete strangers who will become your friends before you can finish your first large cold beer. We sat with some fun but fiesty Italian guys and immediately I was challenged to a beer drinking contest. I won of course and they bought the next two rounds.

Ozapft is! Oktoberfest (we call it Wiesn) is the most popular and best beerfestival ever since, though I'm grown up here and went to the Octoberfest every year it never gets boring. People from all over the World come together into a "Wiesnzelt" to get drunk and make new friends. But Wiesn is more than drinking there are a lot of things to do besides drinking... For example eating :) There are many traditional Bavarian dishes served and even though it's expensive, it's worth it!

One of the best parties in the world for a reason. Yes the food and beer are pricey but its a full day of drinking with people around the world and listening to the German music. Advice: get to the beer tents EARLY as they fill up and you will want to get a seat at a table. However there is no dancing on the tables allowed
