For our last day in Bavaria we stopped off in Munich. We toured the Alte Pinakothek(great art gallery) and walked through the Marianplatz. Anticipating the whole time the most well-known festival in Germany. That's right, folks: we made it to Oktoberfest!
Let me attempt to paint you a picture.
Imagine Canada's Wonderland, in the summer, with all the rides and games. It is hot and sweaty and packed with people. Now, put in giant-pretzel stands, gingerbread cookies and for each one of those there are 2 schnitzel and wurst stands. Now imagine huge event tents, each the siye of a footbal field packed with long tables. Each table is shoulder to shoulder with people, each with their own GIGANTIC beer (bigger than a BP schnooer). Put the whole scene in Germany, complete with traditional German dress and singing, and there zou have it: Oktoberfest!
It was a crazy experience. When we got to the park at 230pm there were absolutely no seats left! I guess the Germans get up early!
SIDENOTE to whoever is pretending to be Karly in the comments: please stop. (Thanks)
