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.

This was the 200th Munich Oktoberfest

200th Munich Oktoberfest




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
