As of today: Working on the Wiesn until the tapping date
Things are happening on the Theresienwiese: Since today, the largest construction site in Munich has been busy working to ensure that everything is ready to go by the deadline of September 21st. So far, it's hard to imagine that millions of people will enter and leave Oktoberfest in a few weeks' time. Nevertheless, the processes seem routine. In any case, the tent owners and those responsible are confident that everything will be in its place on September 21st.
Particularly exciting is the start of the construction work for the head of the Department of Labour and Economic Affairs, Clemens Baumgärtner, who this year for the first time takes the job as head of octoberfest and is full of anticipation:
"The feeling and the special flair, the smell, the sound, the festival tents, exciting and traditional rides, that's what you have to look at as a Munich citizen. Therefore it is exciting to see how the foundation stone for the Wiesn is laid."
