Although Oktoberfest has not too much to do with good food it is a special food related experience some of you will take nevertheless. Therefore some info:
Octoberfest will happen this year September 20th until October 5th (it always ends the first Sunday in October (unless October 3rd, German National Holiday is later, then it ends October 3rd)
All tables open for reservation are already booked, so no more reservations are possible. As at least 30 % of the tables must not be reserved in advance and for weekends and holidays no reservations are allowed at all, there will always be a chance to be seated (especially lunch).
The party will begin this year already one hour earlier at 10 am, 2nd and 3rd Saturday already at 9 am, but the music will end 30 minutes earlier at 10 pm.
The most expensive beer will be 6.80 Euro same as last year.
