The campaign "Safe Oktoberfest for Girls and Women" is an offer for Oktoberfest visitors who need help for various reasons. In 14 cases, women with sexual or physical experiences of violence came to the Security Point this year. Last year, eight cases could be helped.
However, the organizers of the campaign do not see a general increase in violence at the Oktoberfest. The fact that more women came to the contact point was due to the increased awareness of the action. In addition, political debates such as #metoo had sharpened the awareness of the visitors.
