Oktoberfest: 6 million people drink 7 million liters of beer


In the world the beer festival brings the biggest in treasury of Munich, the city — the founder of a holiday, nearly one billion euros. For guests break tents, but to get to them not easy — places reserve in a year. What the Oktoberfest is still known for, the correspondent of Business FM in Bavaria has learned the Photo: Andreas Gebert/Reuters the Huge field on 26 hectares in the center of Munich, 14 huge beer tents, everyone on 6 thousand people, uncountable quantity of attractions, tents with food, beer barrels and people from all corners of the planet. An Oktoberfest — the biggest national festival in the world and the spread most around. More than three thousand analogs of a holiday. But the real atmosphere only here, the inhabitant of Bavaria Miranda Helmer:miranda Helmer the inhabitant of Bavaria "Says it is the real holiday when 65 nations sit actually at one table: someone from Canada, other of Belgium, the third of Russia, the fourth of Italy, for some reason is always a lot of people from Australia. And all sit together, all smile, laugh, clink glasses with huge circles, sing, it is so surprising. All is equal, young you or old what color skin and what language you speak, and doesn't play any role, the secretary you or the banker — all speak common language of this fun. All people together! And if the world was as the Oktoberfest, I think, we would have no wars". Beer unites. At least, 6 million people and … families. Mario Matcovich tells — in 20 years of life in Munich to him just haven't allowed to miss any Oktoberfest.

And further — almost quest. If you want to drink Augustiner on Saturday, then it is necessary to arrive for a holiday even before opening at 10 in the morning — at two o'clock in the afternoon you will be asked to leave! The second change, and it only on a reservation begins. It is done in a year, and in a priority there are always those who already reserved tables. During a holiday beer tents can miss 2,5 million people, and visitors of 6 million. Huge deficiency. Some Germans joke that it is possible to leave places on the Oktoberfest in inheritance. Florean Kozak the CEO of the Internet platform on reservation of tables of Oktoberfest-Tischreservierung "Directly in the most beer tent it is almost impossible to reserve anything, and it isn't important, right after the Oktoberfest or in the winter. They are always crowded because there are regular customers. For example, family from Munich which already 22 years every year reserves a table on Saturday evening.
