Oktoberfest was one hell of a celebration. The event typically lasts for a couple weeks and draws millions of visitors. I had a week off from classes, so I bought a Eurail train pass and visited Holland and Germany. I met up with a college buddy, whom we'll call Double G (aka Gregg), and we descended on Munich without much of a plan, but with a massive appetite for beer.
After several liters of beer, a few turkey legs, a roller coaster ride, and a bratwurst or two, we took a quick break to recharge for the evening festivities.
That's when things got a little out of hand...
We even got to see some sights:
|A famous clock, the Rathaus Glockenspiel, at Marienplatz.|
|View of Marienplatz, the inner city square, from a tower in the Frauenkirche.|
|The sun going down in the English Gardens.|
Oktoberfest was a blast and I wouldn't change a thing about that trip. I would, however, like to return and plan the accommodations ahead of time. I plan on going back sometime in the next three years. Anyone up for an adventure?
Thanks, GG, for the photos and the good times.
Alright, next up, the Oregano Hoptoberfest experiment...
