"The only almond roaster at the Oktoberfest" - who else can claim this?
He handles it with humor - that is the "Mandelhans" a.k.a Markus Kaiser. His almond hut is located at the huge and almost-empty Theresienwiese. He has been there since July 24th. and will still be there until October 4th for the "Summer in the City". He's also glad about it.
"I truly miss Oktoberfest," he says as his gaze wanders over the almonds, "but I'm happy to be here." What's it like in the pandemic year, 2020 - which canceled off all the events he usually sets up his booth at? "Well, it's just different; But still nice," says Kaiser, who has been selling roasted almonds, ice cream, sweets and drinks for 22 years.
