Just a little moment from the Oktoberfest. I am still reliving the memories from the experience. It was a quite “wunderbar” event. This is just a little stall selling som traditional Southern german treats.

Picture of the day: The crowds at the octoberfest

I have just returned home, and I have had some time starting sorting my images. Last weekend I went to the Oktoberfest in Münic, and I still are thinking about the party itself. Just the share size of it is enormous , and todays image give you a little taste of how it was at Theresenwise where the big party was held.

Some memories from the oktoberfest in Münic

I just returned today from the Oktoberfest, and I just wanted to share a couple of images that I took at the trip. Just to give a little impression.

First of we have the venue. Theresienwise is a big theme park, and it looks amazing. The backdrop with the Farris wheel I think just ads to the touch.

 

The next images is of our very nice waitress, dress in the traditional german  dirndl .

This image is just a shot of a lovely couple dancing, and enjoying the party.

And last , but not least some of the snacks at the party. The German pretzel. It was just great.

Picture of the day: The Augustiner tent at The Oktoberfest in Munchen

The party have ended  for my part, and what a party. It have all pieces,  and in typical German fashion everything fits together. And to get into one of the big “tents”, that actually are large houses, I had to stand in line from7.30 am, untill 9.am just to get a table. And it was worth it. The mood and excitement of the entire party is just great, and the food and drink was great. To be quite honest, I didnt know all that much about german food. The image of the day just shows the inside of the Augustiner tent today, and the several thousand People enjoying the mood.

Whats in my camera bag …. when I am going to octoberfest in Münic, Germany

 

Hi

I thought I was going to do a little bit different post today, and telling a little about what I am planning to bring of camera equipment when I am going to Germany in a couple of weeks.

There are some small things to consider , and you will find how I am thinking about it in the YouTube video at the end of the post.
