Some tips on how to enjoy a visit of the Oktoberfest…and survive!

When one says Oktoberfest (the October feast, or Wiesn in Bavarian) the mind immediately goes to Munich, the host city, and the rivers of beer flowing all over the festive and noisy tents overpacked with people.
The feast of beer in Munich (which takes place from 21th September through 6th October 2019) is held in the huge traditional site of Theresienwiese, and is officially opened by the inaugural scream «O’zapft is!!» («Uncorked!»). The event sees the presence of the stalls of the most representative and renowned Munich breweries (Paulaner, Spaten, Hofbräu, Hacker-Pschorr, Augustiner and Löwenbräu) and a huge fun fair.
Munich beer festival is the most famous but not the only one in Germany. In fact there are at least other two events taking place in other locations:

The Stuttgart Cannstatter Volksfest (the next edition will be held in Cannstatter Wasen, in the neighborhood of Bad Cannstatt) is the Oktoberfest of Baden Württemberg. This popular event takes place around the mythic 24 mt high “fruit fountain” (Fruchtsaeule), considered one of the finest in Germany.

Rosenheim Oktoberfest (Herbfest): a quiet and charming autumn feast marked by a strong Bavarian identity. Overlooked by most foreign tourists.

Attending the Oktoberfest is surely a one-of-a-kind experience that everybody should try at least once in their lives (even abstemious people!), but if you want to keep a pleasant memory of it, make sure you follow a few basic tips, which will help you getting through it
