The Octoberfest (Oktoberfest) is the greatest Beer fest in Germany as well as in the whole world. In spite of its name it is held yearly, for about 20 decades, during 16 days from mid September until the beginning of October (during 16 days).
The fair is opened with traditional parade of carriages with horses that march from the city center, carrying large bier barrels. At noon the city mayor opens one of the barrels with strong hit using hammer and chisel.
He pours the first glass and all the crowd cheer loudly. Large tents that contain hundreds of seats are ready for the celebrants.
Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for tickets and accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.
The Millions of bier glasses, sausages and grilled chickens that are consumed create an unforgettable, unique and happy event.
