Festivals & celebrations: O’zapft is! – Oktoberfest in the region

The Oktoberfest in Munich has been running since September 17, and from Friday North Rhine-Westphalia will also follow with branches in various cities.

It is and was the year of comebacks, the return of numerous major events without any restrictions after two years of doing without – events sprouted from the ground in spring like crocuses after the frost period. It goes without saying that one event shouldn’t be missing: the Oktoberfest in Munich – finally showing again in dirndl or lederhosen on the Theresienwiese.

While Bavaria has been attracting the who’s who of German celebrities from entertainment, sports and politics to the notorious Käfer tent since last Friday with eleven degrees and drizzle, the local offshoots are starting one or more in Essen, Duisburg and Hagen, among others Weeks later. In Xanten, Düsseldorf and Cologne, however, there will be no great fun this year either. We have compiled some swan parades for you:
