Münchner Kindl Oktoberfest 2006 Stefanie Krätz

Each year, the "Munich Child" (Münchner Kindl) opens the fest, reviving the 800 year old crest of the city. While first drawings of the crest showed a monk in a frock, but about 150 years ago it got changed to show a young girl in the frock. Anyway, this year the child is played by Stefanie Krätz, daughter of tent owners Sepp und Gabriele Krätz who run the Hippodrom tent.
