Finally after a 9 year wait, I was able to get back to Oktoberfest in Munich Germany for the 200th Anniversary of the event. When I went in 2001 with 5 friends, my old crappy VHS camcorder 2 piece had long been retired and modern digital equipment and software was still quite expensive and Youtube was still 4 years into the future. Well the time was right to cash in some airline miles and head back to the crazy craic that I only had captured with a film camera. Probably the best spot to see the real debauchery would be the HofbrÃ¤u Feltzelt (festival tent). The place is filled with beer guzzling mostly English speaking craic heads from England, Australia, USA, New Zealand. This tent is by far the rowdiest. This is a 3 minute video that captures 2 liters and 2 hours of life in HofbrÃ¤u Feltzelt. I would highly reccommend to everyone to put at least 2 days of Oktobfest in Munich on your bucket list. It takes 2 months to build, and 3 months to take down the event which lasts only 2 weeks.
It’s a video, click the picture or hit the Flash or Quicktime link. Prosit, Jimmy
