Oktoberfest 2015 will serve beer ice cream

A little more than a month is left before the start of the traditional beer festival in Munich. For tourists, attendance at Oktoberfest is required. And not only beer awaits them there. About six and a half million people attend the Oktoberfest beer festival in Munich every year. The main measure of everything here is a beer mug. Munich’s traditional thick glass mug is called Maß. How much beer will cost in such a mug is what fans of the world-famous national holiday in the Bavarian capital want to know long before it starts.

This year, as was announced now by the Oktoberfest organizing committee, for the first time in the long history of the holiday, the minimum price of a liter mug of beer will be more than 10 euros. As a special delicacy for people coming to Oktoberfest from around the world, this year, ice-cream beer or beer ice cream is offered. Moreover, new giant swing-carousels were also presented – also a must for the holiday. At the 2015 Munich Oktoberfest, visitors will ride, as announced, on the world’s tallest and fastest monkey cage swings.

These are such swings, usually similar to a cage, that make a full circle in the air around a horizontal axis, but a person sitting or standing in them does not turn upside down. Anyway, as the organizers of the beer festival noted, it is recommended to ride before tasting the beer. Of course, one new attraction for the season is not solid for a holiday of this magnitude. In the Theresian Meadows with a total area of ​​42 hectares, where the Oktoberfest takes place, they also promise to install several more sophisticated technological delights for tickling nerves. In particular, the world’s tallest mobile multi-storey building with parkour made of moving paths and rotating logs, as well as the Mobile Room of Fear, is also, of course, the largest in the world. Dense food at Oktoberfest plays a secondary role, but still you won’t be full with one beer.

Moreover, the traditional menu – pretzels and fried chicken – no longer fully meets the requirements of the time with all its vegetarian and vegan trends. Therefore, the menu this year included special dishes for diabetics and “herbalists”. For dessert, you will be offered – in addition to beer ice cream – cotton candy in the form of various inflorescences or in the form of a traditional Munich white sausage.

The profitability of Munich “lawns” (as they are called, although the grass in the territory where Oktoberfest is being held has long been trampled down) is estimated at one billion euros. You can actually drink beer anywhere. But there are nuances. At Oktoberfest, they don’t just drink beer in the open. This is not prestigious. It is prestigious to get into one of the crowded pavilions-tents, although it is noisy, hot, stuffy, crowded. Attention! Without a reservation, you will have to stand in line at the entrance for a very long time. So it’s better to take care of this in advance. It is reported by Deutsche Welle. BEER beer festivals, beer mug, beer – ice cream, beer tents, Oktoberfest – 2015.
