A "quality Oktoberfest" with 3.3 million guests
"This is celebrating at a high level", Clemens Baumgärtner summed up at the official presentation of the interim balance at the Wiesn. The motto "quality instead of quantity" is reflected, for example, in the feel-good atmosphere and the late summer weather. According to the festival management, a total of about 3.3 million guests came to the Theresienwiese, 250,000 of them to the Oide Wiesn (2018: 240,000).
He was particularly pleased about the high number of families and children who increasingly visited the festival grounds again. The locals celebrate together with guests from Australia, China, Canada, Japan and the USA. And the rest of Europe was also well represented with Great Britain, Austria, Norway, Italia and Switzerland.
