Munich City Guide is 17 years old next month, one of the oldest websites still operating. The guide has gone through many designs, changes and styles. The current version has more information from more sources than ever before. Never heard of the original Munich City Guide, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
The Munich City Guide has not been updated for years, just kept update with information. Now a new City Guide is being created based on WordPress. This should be ready for launching around the Oktoberfest time. If you need more information before that, just send an email and I will try to help.
The 2011 Munich Oktoberfest was a great success, almost perfect weather, apart from the first Sunday. This year Oktoberfest was from 17th September till 3rd October. One day longer due to a public holiday for German re-unification.
6.9 million vistors
7.5 million Mass bier
118 Ox roasted
about 500,000 grilled chickens
and few hundred thousand Mass bier glasses stolen
This years Oktoberfest held in Munich between September 18th and October 4th was not quite a record, but very near. One day longer than normal, due to the German day of reunification on 3rd October. The number of visitors was recorded as 6.4 million. The record was in 1985 with 7.1 million. About 7 million Maß beer, or nearly 12.5 million UK pints was drunk.
If you are a vegetarian, sorry but there were117 Ox, hundreds of thousands of chicken, and I lost count of the pork knuckles consumed. Local business and city city expect to earn about €950 million Euro's. See the new Munich City Guide and Oktoberfest information
