Munich – It is THE celebrity show at the Munich Oktoberfest. Last night, actors, athletes and models drank and celebrated together during the cattle drive in the Käfer marquee.
The celebrity list was long: newscasters Jan Hofer (72), ex-goalkeeper Jens Lehman (52), Scooter Singer HP Baxxter (58), TV star Evelyn Burdecki (37), Julia Siegel (47), goalkeeper Loris Karius (29, Newcastle United, ex of Sophia Thomalla), plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Reithcomedian Michael Mittemeier (56) and Victoria Swarovski (29, Let’s Dance).
None of them let the cool, wet weather dampen their party mood – after all, the mood on the first floor of the Käfer marquee quickly boiled up.
Presenter only Verena Kerth (41, came with friend Marc Terenzi, 44) took a while to thaw out. She was not recognized in the queue in front of the tent, an employee asked if Verena was from the press and got a dirty look. Verena later to her companion: “Insane. The staff here is also getting worse and worse.”
Oliver Pocher helped the waiters
comedian Oliver Pocher (44) meanwhile supported the staff, keeping the narrow aisles free for waiters with measure and duck pans. “Somebody has to help them,” he said selflessly. Pocher came with his wife amira (29). Also his ex-partners Sandy Meyer-Woelden (39) and Monica Ivancan (45) took part in the cattle drive and are said to have come together. No sign of jealousy.
Ex-ski racer Maria Hoefl-Riesch (37) was amazed at the many celebrities in the evening: “I stood down in the crowds and thought that it had never been so tight during the Almauftrieb.” Höfl-Riesch took it sporty: “I’m happy about it, the normal thing Life is finally coming back.” For her it was already the second day at the Wiesn. There is no sign of a hangover: “You have to start the next beer early enough,” she joked.
Clemens Baumgärtner, head of the Wiesn and economics officer, was delighted with the relaxed atmosphere. “People who make things happen come together here. Such an event at the Oktoberfest has to be set up first. That’s remarkable.” He also thanked the organizers, couple event managers Philip and Evelyn Greffenius, and Wiesn hosts Michael and Clarissa Käfer.
Film producer Otto Retzer (77, Das Traumhotel) in a lively exchange with Hamburg neighborhood giant Kalle Swenson: “We are shooting a film together. With Moritz Bleibtreu in the leading role.”
