Happens every year, and 2010 was the 200th anniversary of this event which i was fortunate enough to attend. In 12 massive tents, 6 million guests from around the world gather and consume 6 million litres of beer, eat 500,000 chicken, countless prezels and 100 oxen, then I have not even mentioned the famous schweinehaxen.
It is in honour of Ludwig von Bayern and his wife Therese's wedding and it takes place on the Thereseinwies. It usually takes place end of September as the weather is better then than around 12 October when the actual wedding took place.
Drink Brüderlein Beer instead of Water
Germans of Munich drink bier like a barrel in huge bier glasses. I am not used it. For that reason I drink only a "kleines" little. There was also brass music in the halle but it was too noisy. For that reason we find ourselves a remote place in one of the endless corridors. I think the Munchener had the idea to build a hugu bier halle after seeing our covered bazaars in Turkey. the Kapali Carcis. hi hi hi
Fasching (Munich's Carneval)
Munich has quite a big carneval, which is called "Fasching". It's a big party that takes place in the center of the city with live music on stages, performances, dances, people singing, dancing, drinking and partying outside (if the weather permits it).
Memorial to 11 Israeli Athletes and a policeman
On 5 September 1972, 11 Israeli athletes competing in the XX Olympiad in Munich and a German Police Officer were killed by terrorists.
The memorial is very probably walked past by many visitors to the Olympic Stadium and Park with no thought given to what it is or why it is there.
If you pass this memorial after reading this section - please stop and pay your respects - the traditional values of the Olympic Games should be well above that of politics!
