Herr Antrim und OKTOBERFEST


Und weitere Infos hier:

Facts you may not know about Oktoberfest

1. There are new security checks in place for the 2016 Oktoberfest.

Prior to this year, you could carry large bags onto the Theresienwiese, but this year, there will be check points in place so that no guests can bring in large bags and smaller bags will be checked for any dangerous materials or objects. Another big reason for this new rule is to stop people from trying to walk off with their beer mugs, something which happened over a quarter of a million times last year.

2. A Bierstein isn't what a beer mug is called. 

It is actually called "Bierkrug" or Maß".  Since ,,Stein" is stone or rock, a "Bierstein" would be a "beer rock".

3. Paris Hilton isn't allowed back to Oktoberfest. 

The locals thought that her presence there "cheapened" the festival. 

4. There's an app for that.

You can download the official Oktoberfest app for Android or iOS and get all of the information you would need for Oktoberfest. The app even offers an estimate of what your blood alcohol content would be based on your gender, weight, and when you had your first drink. You can even input a variety of drinks that are available at Oktoberfest. 

So that's my list. I hope you enjoyed it. I also hope you now feel that you are ready for your trip to Oktoberfest. If you want to win a trip to Oktoberfest in 2017, you should try this competition here
It's a competition with you pronouncing these 3 German words on film, and posting the film: 
                  Erfindergeist, Gründlichkeit, Zuverlässigkeit, 
 [By the way, these words mean : inventive spirit; thoroughness; reliability]
