I just got back from a whirlwind, 2 week trip around Germany (and a few other countries). As you should, when in Germany during the month of October, I went to Oktoberfest in Munich. It was awesome: giant tents, cram-packed with people dressed to the nines in their dirndls and lederhosen, binging on beer and white sausage, drenched in mustard.
We spent most of the day in the Hacker Pschorr tent, stuffing our faces with giant pretzels and the märzen brewed especially for Oktoberfest. I love any celebration where drinking out of steins and dressing up are a requirement. Can we just go ahead and add this beloved tradition to our list of holidays and observances? Pretty please?
What!!!!! I am a little, nope definitely A LOT, jealous!! That looks like an amazing time and you are so darn cute in your authentic Oktoberfest outfit. Thanks for sharing with us because I don’t think I’ll find myself in Germany anytime soon. Haha
You are so sweet! Thank you so much, Mack!!!
Awesome! Small world! I went to Oktoberfest a few weeks ago and it was amazing! I think we have the same dirndl. Here’s my blog post about it: http://ashleyadores.com/travel-log-munich-and-london-929-104/
you’re so right! I love the way you guys styled it too. Sneakers are the way to go!
When I lived in Germany growing up (first and second grade), we didn’t make the trip to Munich fro Oktoberfest. It was huge then as it is now probably more these days. I guess it’s okay for one married to tell another that you rocked your German dress. Nice that your husband wore the lederhosen. Glad I didn’t have to wear it when I was a kid. 🙂
The important part, how was the beer?
Oh–how fun! And the beer was so good. It’s interesting that the Oktoberfest beers they sell to us in the states are different than the beers they offer in Germany. I really liked it!!!!
