About Munich

Oktoberfest is the world’s largest Volkfest (beer festival and traveling funfair), which is held in Munich, Germany. This year, it will be held from 21st September to 6th October. Locally, this festival is known as Wiesn, and is named after the fairgrounds. It has been an important part of the Bavarian culture since 1810.The festival starts with a parade led by Munchner kindl, followed by Lord Mayor of Munich and then by the decorated horse carriages, floats of breweries etc. After the parade at exactly 12 o'clock, the Lord Mayor opens the first beer barrel in the Schottenhammel tent. With the initial pass and the exclamation O'zapft is! ("it's tapped!"), the Oktoberfest is declared open.Twelve gunshots are then fired on the stairway of Ruhmeshalle. This is the signal for other restaurateurs to start with the serving of beer. Another parade that people eagerly wait for takes place on the first Sunday of the festival. 8000 participants march in the parade in their historic festival costumes from the Km Maximilianeum  to the festival grounds. Tons of people gather here to drink and enjoy the exquisite beer, which is made in Germany itself.Navratri
