Munich Oktoberfest 2012 - a preview
A preview of the Munich Oktoberfest 2012
You’ve made the decision. You’ve found your bed and booked your flight. You’ve packed your most Bavarian-like clobber and have been brushing up your “Guten Abend!” and “danke schön!”.
You’re on your way to what could well be the best party of your life: The Munich Oktoberfest.
So what can you expect? This photo page and the five following it are a preview, a teaser, if you will, of what awaits at this most awesome German beer festival.
They were taken by Oktoberfest visitors who’ve chosen to share their work through websites such as flickr.com .
If you’re after more practical info and stories about the fest please check out the main Oktoberfest Munich page here. See here for an index of all of Oktoberfest-related stories on this site (there’s over two dozen, I’ve been doing this for a while now :-).
So, on with the photos!
Here’s a nice group of friends enjoying the atmosphere in the massive Hofbräufestzelt.

Hangover Hill. The gentle slopes in front of the Bavaria Statue often fill up with
people passed out from too much of the amber gold.
The original caption from Flickr reads: " Some brazilians we met. They were going around with text on their arms. They obviously didn't know what it meant, and got slapped across the face a few times "! SteFou! @ Munich Oktoberfest 2012 preview
