Oktoberfest Opening Hacker-Pschorr

Here are the beautiful girls of the Hacker-Pschorr tent where I met Eva last year.

Oktoberfest Opening Augustiner Festhalle

And more beautiful girls, this time from the "Augustiner Festhalle", obviously having a very good time on their carriage. And they were very friendly to one of the spectators. Next photo, folks!

Oktoberfest Opening Parade

One of the girls of the "Augustiner Tent" handed her beer to a spectator on the street, who was very thristy and apparently could not wait until the fest was officially opened. However, when the carriage started to move again, she demanded the beer back (and he complied with her wish), waving a "Thank You!" back to the girls. :-)

Oktoberfest Hofbräu Festzelt Steinberg

The opening parade for the Oktoberfest is also a fest for the eyes. This is the coach of the Steinberg family: the ladies wear their finest traditional dresses (the "Dirndl"), the gents put on their "Tracht" as well, and everybody is having a really good time (except, maybe, for the kid in the middle who possibly wonders what this is all about).

Oktoberfest Opening Parade

An unknown beauty on the "Hippodrom" carriage. Whoever she is - the camera loves her! And so I could not resist to play a bit around in Photoshop to put the full focus on her. :-)

Oktoberfest Opening Parade 2006

The parade does not just go through Munich's High Street but also through the traditional quarters next to the Theresienwiese where the fest takes place. These are the two carriages of "Fischer Vroni", again showing off their beautiful staff.

Oktoberfest 2006

Now let's take a walk around the fest itself, and this is the souvenir that you need to take home - it says "Greetings from the Oktoberfest 2006".

Oktoberfest 2006 Brezenpreis

The traditional pretzel (or "Brez'n" as the locals say) belongs to Oktoberfest just as the beer. This booth sells the small version for 1.50 Euro.

Hofbräu Festzelt Oktoberfest

The carriage and the horses of the "Hofbräu" Tent are standing in front of the tent. The horses wear the tents logo in their harness.
