OUS Munich - Traditional Oktoberfest Celebrations

Like every year, the Oxford Alumni Society in Munich gathered in late September for its annual Oktoberfest celebrations. While it is called `Oktoberfest’, the Bavarian beer festival actually kicks off in September already, to make use of more favourable Indian Summer conditions. And the weather was welcoming indeed: With a rainy kick-off in the Oktoberfest’s first days, as soon as the Oxford Society joined the celebrations, sunny conditions prevailed.
