Flight ban over the Oktoberfest
"O'zapft is! To a peaceful Oktoberfest!" With these words mayor Dieter Reiter traditionally opens the Munich Oktoberfest. However, to make the Oktoberfest a peaceful event, the safety of all visitors is the top priority every year. For this reason, there is a general ban on flying over the Theresienwiese during the Oktoberfest.
