The official Oktoberfest review 2019

The Oktoberfest 2019 comes to an end - and all those responsible can draw a positive conclusion: Although there are no records to celebrate this year, many facts and figures are satisfying. The police and the ambulance station also share their conclusions.

The Oktoberfest farewell in 2019

When an Oktoberfest with the title "Qualitätswiesn" and many atmospheric days says goodbye, then it is clear that it will be wistful on the last evening: So beautiful was the traditional Wiesn-Kehraus 2019!

The gun salute on the last sunday

The Wiesn begins directly after the tapping with firecrackers and ends traditionally 16 days later with plentifully roaring: 60 shooters on the steps of the Bavaria begin the farewell of the Oktoberfest 2019. Also present: plenty of Wiesn celebrities and Prince Wolfgang of Bavaria.


The mood at FC Bayern is already in the early stages: After the 1:2 defeat against Hoffenheim, the traditional Oktoberfest visit will be a rather seeded event. The stars still have a good time.

The last Sunday at the Oktoberfest

The last Wiesn evening is a big, emotional finale in the tents. Above all the people of Munich love their melancholic and solemn "Kehraus": with thousands of sparklers in the hacker, a last "Angels" in the Hofbräu, a singing landlord - and in the Bräurosl the mayor himself turns off the light.
