Oktoberfest 2012

If you have thought of a September under the party and fun, then you can plan a visit to munich of Bavaria when in the second half of September kindle the bubbly celebration of Oktoberfest 2012, the most awaited moment of year for the Bavarian capital. Two years ago it was the turn of the much bicentennial of the event which was celebrated with great fanfare and richness of the program, but this year we will make great celebrations.

There are 3 major events of the 2012 celebration of the 179th Oktoberfest 2012 in munich, which will run from September 22 to October 7.

Saturday, September 22 starting at 10:45 am will be the Grand Entry of the Oktoberfest 2012 brewers and innkeepers. The event will last about 45 minutes and will take you along the streets Sonnenstraße Schwanthalerstrasse up to the party area. It’s the initial parade involving about a thousand participants, including the families of brewers with their carriages, the horses pulling the breweries, waitresses on wagons and the orchestras of the tents.

The next day it’s up to the parade of shooters and traditional costumes. By the time of 2 hours, the event will take place at 10 am starting from Siegestor to the Theresienwiese, passing through the most beautiful areas of the center. Tradition as it is the most anticipated event that falls on the morning of the first Sunday of the Oktoberfest 2012. It’s the best way to have a vision of the various types of traditional Bavarian costumes, including those of Schützen shooters. The parade route stretches for about seven miles, and it will be a feast of folk groups and costumes typical of Bavaria.

Last meeting “institutional” Sunday, September 30 with the traditional concert orchestra of  Oktoberfest 2012. At 11 am on the steps of Bavaria will be the moment of the music overwhelming that it can involve even the most detached. If you do not think there will be music rivers of beer to bring liveliness and light-heartedness which are after all the most important features of the Oktoberfest 2012.
