Classics like gingerbread hearts and clothespins
One classic Wiesn souvenir is the Lebkuchenherz (gingerbread heart). You can’t really go wrong with one of these — if you choose the right icing label. If you want to enjoy your beer from an original Munich Oktoberfest stein in the future, you should never try to swipe one from a tent. Security won’t take a joke as far as that goes. But it’s worth buying an original Wiesn stein in one of the souvenir shops. Another classic are the Wiesn clothespins, or “Glupperl,” as the Bavarians call them.
