Oktoberfest Berlin

Oktoberfest Berlin

Oktoberfest is an annual festival 
celebrating beer held in Munich, Germany
 from late September to the first weekend in October.

 It is a famous event in Germany 
and is the world's largest fair 
with millions of people from around the world 
attending the event every year.

 Other cities across the world 
(including some cities in the Philippines)
 also hold Oktoberfests
modeled after the original Munich event.

The closest to the real thing that we experienced
was the Oktoberfest in Berlin

While most people associate Oktoberfest
 with beer, beer drinking and getting drunk-
well,  they are wrong.

 To the locals, it is not called Oktoberfest,
 but "die Wiesn" – 
named after the fairgrounds where they are held.

Oktoberfest is also an occasion for the whole family-
…to bond and enjoy good folk music,

…sweet candies and nougats,

…yummy and irresistible pretzels


…candied apples,

…and toy trumpets.

Did anyone needed beer on Oktoberfest?

Yes, but not everyone.

Care for some sweets?

Happy Oktoberfest!!!
