Today we headed out the 2 hours to Munich in the rain for the Oktoberfest.

Our first stop was near the English Garden where we could walk and see some of the historic buildings nearby.

It is not too often you see a guy riding a bike with a surfboard this far from an ocean…. check out the “surfers” in the park.

Then we made for one of the oldest Hofbrauhaus in the city for “breakfast” of beer, pretzels, and Weisswurst (boiled white sausages).

Then we headed to the fest. Here we checkout several of the tents and beers. We took the Ferris wheel, tried out the toboggan ride, and the test of strength.

The Toboggan is a conveyor belt that is moving very fast and takes quite a bit of skill to ride. It is really fun to watch the drunk people try to get up without help. Think turtle on it’s back!

The Tents were crowded and loud, but awesome all the same. You can only buy 1 liter beers at Oktoberfest!

The Ferris wheel was actually a lot of fun! We did about 10 loops and kept passing the same drunk people on the platform.
