Munich during the Oktoberfest

Hey guys!

I'm just back from a trip through Europe in the last 20 days. On the trip I started in Munich, to which this thread is dedicated, and continued into other cities in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.

About Munich, well, it is a beautiful city, but I'm not a fan of it especially because the first time I visited it, when people were extremely rude to me. But this time it was time for Oktoberfest, or Wies'n, as they call it. It was the two hundredth edition and there were MANY people!

Well, let's stop talking and let's take a glance at the pics:

1 - On the arrival I went straight to the Oktoberfest. This is the tent of Löwenbräu


2 - Paulaner


3 - At the end of the day, in the Augustiner tent (great beer by the way)


4 - Saturday evening, it was crowded!


5 - Karlsplatz


6


7


8 - Walking towards Marienplatz


9


10


11 - Hirmer, apparently a traditional department store


12 - Frauenkirche


13 - City Hall in Marienplatz


15 - Isartor area


16


17 - If I'm not mistaken this is the square of Hofbräuhaus


18


19


20 - Near the City Hall


21 - Old city hall


22 - Frauenkirche


23


24 - Back to the Oktoberfest, now in the afternoon to take pictures. This is the tent of Spaten


25 - Hofbräuhaus Tent


26


27 - Paulaner


28


29


30 - Augustiner


31 - Auf wiedersehen!


32


33 - Königsplatz


34


35


36 - Near Residenz


37


38


39


40 - Marienplatz at dusk


41


42


And that's it!

In some ways. We were having an ice cream in Marienplatz and we had bought it in a place that also sold food and drinks. Thing is, one was not allowed to sit on the tables if having and ice cream, but only if eating or drinking something. We had not seen the sign on the table and all of a sudden the lady came up and started yellowing at us. Polite people would just say "could you please leave because this this and that?" ...

And in the train station we went to the wrong information counter to ask for hotel information. The lady over there pointed the 2 exits (one at each side) and said "did you search there?". Come on, why be so ironic?!

This got both of us, me and my dad, reeeally pissed off. We had another episode in the Hofbräuhaus, but I don't remember it so clearly.

Can't you understand? Munich is the hometown of Pfeuffer, the Troll.

A city that is the hometown to such a creature, can never be a good place!

Yes, Munich would be such a nice place without the native population. Didn't like the people there either. Probably the most arrogant people you can find in Germany.

I agree. Pfeuffer is the living proof of that.

Nice photos but i prefer the north of Germany because of the attitude.Southern Germany has maybe the better preserved old cities but you know they are so different.
