    I recently survived city festivals in Düsseldorf and Köln. It's always strange to see an entire city turn out and be shit-faced drunk by midday - Germans, so reserved and correct most of the time, save up all their angst for just a few days of the year.

    I didn't see it personally, but I was told at 11 O'clock in the morning (kick off time for Düsseldorf's fest) scores of drunk women were waiting at the steps to the town hall, wielding scissors, ready to cut the ties off all passing men.

    This is not normal behaviour.

    I'm tempted to trek down to the Oktoberfest this year, though I have heard that so many chickens are killed that it actually constitutes genocide.

    What's the situation with hotels? Is it better to camp outside the city or just drink till you drop and sleep at the bar?
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Hotels will be overbooked and overprized. There are some nice campgrounds in the south of Munich. Staying there is cheaper and much more fun. Let me know, if you need some adresses.

    BTW:
    On Saturday, September 19th, the Schottenhamel tent is the place to be, if you want to catch the official opening ceremonies. At noontime, 12pm, the lord mayor of Munich will have the honor of tapping the first keg of Oktoberfest beer. Once the barrel has been tapped, all visitors will then be allowed to quench their thirst. It pays to arrive early in order to experience the festivities up close and personal and it's quite common for visitors to come around 9am to secure good seats. The festival will last until October 4th, 2009.
    Beer Serving Hours are:
    Weekdays: 10am - 10:30pm
    Saturdays, Sundays and holidays: 9am - 10:30pm
    Daily Tent Closing Time: 11:30pm
    The "Käfer Wiesn-Schänke" and the "Weinzelt" are open until 1am. Last call for alcohol: 12:15am.

    So, come over here and have a good time.....

    I've often thought about trying to make the trek to enjoy one of these festivals.
    Stay out of it, dude.
