The famous Oktoberfest is going on right now in Munich, so I thought I'd make another post of when I went there back in May. This was the first night - had dinner at Hofbrauhaus! This place is pretty touristy, but so fun. You sit at long communal tables, so it's easy to meet people sitting beside you. The only downside is waiting forever for a server. You must go if you visit the city. Amazing atmosphere!! It was really packed when I went, and I'm certain now for Oktoberfest it must be 100x crazier.
Check out this photo-post to see what Oktoberfest is all about. I guarantee you will want to go experience it for yourself someday after looking at their photos..
Luckily I had a friend from Germany with me during the Munich days of my Eurotrip. Most restaurants there only had their menu in German! So my friend made all the decisions for me on what to order. I tried schnitzel for the first time in my life - loooooved it! It's a huge portion though. I ate like half of it and probably only finished off a quarter of my litre-sized Radler. Both were delicious though. I've yet to find a good place for schnitzel in Toronto..
Hofbrauhaus is HUGE. Here's one of the biergartens (I think most restaurants there have a biergarten)
