How it was in 2022: Big audience and great mood
The mood could not have been better, even for Mayor Dieter Reiter, who rode in the front of the carriage to the tapping in the Schottenhamel Festival Hall. The landlords who drove with their families in the flower-decorated floats of their breweries from the city centre to the Festwiese, obviously liked it too. Numerous Munich residents and tourists were already there in the morning and didn't miss the opportunity to follow the colourful train between Sendlinger Tor, Schwanthaler Straße and Theresienwiese. For the best view of the action, many fans of Oktoberfest on Sonnenstraße had seats on grandstands. And it was worth it: A very impressive picture when the six Munich Wiesnbier breweries' magnificent carriages, drawn by lavishly decorated cold-blooded horses, roam the city centre of Munich.
