In the Bräurosl, OB Reiter turns the lights off
In the Schottenhamel-Festhalle Lord Mayor Dieter Reiter taps the first barrel, in the Pschorr Bräurosl 16 days later at 22:15 he personally turns off the lights. To the sounds of the traditional farewell song "Silencio". But before it's time and the Wiesn is really over (until next year), he thanks the visitors on the music stage.
Stefan Schneider, known as the stadium spokesman for the the soccer team of 1860 Munich, has been present on the last Sunday for many years and loves the Wiesn finale very much: "It is a great honour for a Munich resident to be allowed to moderate this!" Hostess Daniela Heide enthuses about the special atmosphere in the Bräurosl: "We distribute 9000 small LED lights in the shape of hearts, which illuminate the tent when the Lord Mayor has turned off the lights." And when the lights go on again and the Wiesn is over for this year, a colourful shower of confetti awaits the guests. Only 349 days left until the Wiesn 2020!
