Ziller Valley or Cologne: From all over the world to the Wiesn
Of course, there are plenty of alpine songs that have what it takes to become a Wiesn hit, but Oktoberfest visitors who enjoy celebrating are also cosmopolitan and open-minded! So not only does the famous “Zillertaler Hochzeitsmarsch” (Ziller Valley Wedding March) by the “Zillertaler Schürzenjäger” from Austria sound in all harmony, but so too does the rousing “Viva Colonia” by “de Höhner.” Tolerance in, tolerance out — of course “Bavaria” is sung on the Wiesn instead of “Colonia.” Year after year, DJ Ötzi sings about his “Anton” from Tyrol, which is not that far away, and from his neighbors to the south comes the indispensable “Fürstenfeld” (Princely Field). Rex Gildo advertises for the Fiesta Mexicana, and year after Wiesn year, Tony Christie looks for the “Weg nach Amarillo” (Way to Amarillo). And even if nobody wants to go home yet: “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by Tom Astor always works.
