Opening day of Oktoberfest. You wake up at sunrise, race into the festival grounds & wait. You wait for the beer hall doors to open. Once they finally open, you race for a table & wait some more. The first keg is tapped at midday, so what better way to occupy yourselves than with a game of Monopoly.
While München’s New Town Hall in Marienplatz has very impressive gothic architecture, most tourists come for the Rathaus-Glockenspiel show. Since 1908, the three times a day show has entertained passers-by telling its two stories. Two stories that make no sense to this backpacker.
