Munich: The Oktoberfest beer festival opens in the capital of Bavaria.
On Saturday, September 22, Mayor of the city Dieter Reiter and Prime Minister Markus Söder opened the 185th largest beer festival in the world.
Despite the not very low cost of the drink at 11.5 euros, the organizers of the event expect about six million visitors and beer lovers from many countries.
Considering the strength of security measures this year, and as it was with previous visitors, it is now forbidden to take with them on the holiday backpacks and big bags. The beer festival will last until October 7.
