Hey guys!

Are you ready for some OKTOBERFEST and GERMAN BEER AWESOMENESS? YES? Then, this is the trip report to look at, because...

Yesterday, I made my way to Munich to visit the world famous German OKTOBERFEST! For those of you who don't know, it's a HUGE fair with plenty of tents, plenty of beer and plenty of random flat rides and coasters! It's absolutely AMAZING! Whenever you have the chance to come to Germany, go to one of our fairs! They're just AWESOME!

Oktoberfest is famous for its BEER! That's just a matter of fact :D Almost all the German guys and girls dress up in their costumes and so called ''Dirndl'' and ''Lederhosen (some sort of leather trousers), go to Oktoberfest and drink a LOT of beer! They party a lot and enjoy life! It's really traditional! Furthermore, you can see masses of drunk people laying around and throwing up! :D That's just a matter of fact, too and completely normal there!

Since it was too cold, I didn't dress up in my traditional Oktoberfest costume, but you will see a lot of people in my photos who did! I just went there with my parents because they wanted me to see something else than the library at university. So it was a kind of family trip!

We arrived early in the morning, because if you want to go inside a tent, you definitely should arrive by 8 or 9 am, otherwise the tents will be closed due to filling up! You're right! All the people q up hours BEFORE the tents open just to get a spot in there! Welcome to Oktoberfest! :D Since it was a national holiday in Germany (Reunion of Germany), Oktoberfest was TOTALLY crowded! More than half a million visitors!

Oktoberfest is pricey, too! First of all, it's Munich and Munich is one of the most expensive cities here in Germany! Secondly, it's Oktoberfest and people just pay for all that good stuff! A litre of beer cost 9,75 € ($13) and all the rides were around $10! But that's just how it is here ;)

The weather was just beautiful, no rain and no clouds! Nevertheless it was quite cold for October! 14 degrees Celcius!
Later the day, they had to close the subway station due to overcrowding! As I've already mentioned, there were hundred thousands of people coming to the fair!

I definitely hope that TPR is coming to Munich in 2015! Just imagine, drinking beer and partying with TPR members in one of those tents! That would definitely be an EPIC trip! If you guys offer that trip, sign up for it, you won't regret it! Oktoberfest is just amazing :)

With that being said, enjoy some German Oktoberfest AWESOMENESS!

I can't believe how this Octoberfest thing has completely ripped off Busch Gardens by copying their theme. ;)

I wish I remembered more about my Oktoberfest experience... :lol:

What I do remember was that it was the best party atmosphere I had ever experienced.

Thanks for the great photos!

Nice TR Marcel - ONE day I will get to Oktoberfest.

It is weird seeing you drink beer though. You're not 21!

Looks like a great time and now I could go for a beer for some reason. Just curious, what were the wait times on Olympia looping with such huge crowds?
