"Wiesn" is how the Munich citizens love to call the Oktoberfest, that this year will be held for the 186 times. In addition to the many traditional beer tents, the rides, the delicious food and of course the tasty Oktoberfest beer, there will be new Wiesn novelties this year, such as the Schafkopf tournament in the Armburstschützenzelt and "Dr. Archibald - Master of Time" a ride in which the visitors run through a fantastic 3D world with virtual reality glasses.
The very traditional "Oidn Wiesn" shows a historic bowling alley and a candy factory from 1938, where you can try three types of candy and also twelve different licorice varieties. There also is a special exhibition on the topic "showman" in the Museums Tent, which highlight is a historic grand diorama of a fair.
It is only a 10 minute wald form our hotel to the Oktoberfest.
