What’s special: chirping and Bavarian humor
The smallest stand at Oktoberfest is not far from the Bavaria: the Original Münchner Vogelpfeifer (Original Munich Bird Whistlers). Here, Horst and Tobias Berger stand and chirp like only bird whistlers can. The whistle consists of a wax cardboard box, a metal ring, and a membrane. Here’s how it works: Place the Vogelpfeiferl on the tip of your tongue and soften it. Then press it lightly against your palate behind your teeth with your tongue. If you then make the right sounds with your teeth closed, it will make the bird noises. The Vogelpfeiferl can be purchased at the stand.
