If you enjoy traveling, there are certain places that are on everyone’s list: Paris, London, Barcelona, Rome. Beautiful, romantic cities with history and exotic architecture. Some events might take you there( wedding, business trips) and the experience is memorable because it is away from home. In my opinion, travelers must put Oktoberfest in Munich on their docket.
Like New Orleans, be it for Mardi Gras, Jazzfest, or any weekend, Munich provides a fearless element for adults during the festivities. It’s very easy to brush it off as a “beerfest” or a sloppy frat party, but the culture and unity is in abundance. There is a sense of camaraderie and openness. The setup of the village is a sight to behold. And yes, there are some big-ass beers! You can feel included in the action if you buy a lederhosen(guys) or a dirndl(gals). Sausages, and sauerkraut and whole chickens set the culinary atmosphere. There is something for everyone. Put Munich on the list!
