From the Max II Monument to Theresienwiese
The Trachten- und Schützenzug is one of the absolute highlights of the Oktoberfest calendar and anyone who has ever watched this extraordinary event knows why. Shortly after 10 a.m., the nearly seven-kilometer-long procession gradually began to move at the Max II Monument.
The participants did not let the somewhat adverse weather conditions spoil their mood, quite the opposite: enthusiastically they showed off their traditional costumes, waved to the cheering crowd at the roadside and even performed acrobatic acts such as the Munich moriscene dancers. The musical accompaniment was provided by numerous brass bands and marching bands playing traditional folk and marching music.
