Munich's Oktoberfest, held each year since 1810 from late September through the first weekend in October, is one of the most famous events in Germany. It is a beer drinker's paradise - over the course of sixteen days, more than six million visitors consume nearly two million gallons of specially brewed Oktoberfest beer. For the first-time visitor to the Wies'n (a meadow near Munich's center dedicated to the festival), Oktoberfest can be a little overwhelming. Fortunately, Moses Wolff hasn't missed a day of Oktoberfest in years, and he knows the festival like the back of his hand. Here is the ultimate insider's guide to the fair (written by a German and originally published in Germany, of course!), answering questions like: Who goes to Oktoberfest?; How do I choose a beer tent?; Do I need a reservation?; How do I get a seat if the tent is full?; What is "strategic drinking"? Where are the restrooms? and What's up with the crazy outfits? This compact, handy guidebook is the perfect size for stuffing into your lederhosen or dirndl. Illustrated with more than one hundred color photos and dozens of drawings, Meet Me in Munich captures the spirit of one of Germany's most popular attractions.
