Fifth Season in Munich: the Oktoberfest is not just one of the largest festivals in the world but also one of the biggest events in the Bavarian social calendar. Of course, the Oxford University Alumni Society – Munich Branch did not miss out!
30 Alumni held up the Oxonian flag in one of the most traditional beer tents at Oktoberfest. While some just enjoyed the great variety of typical Bavarian dishes, others already climbed up the benches to revive their Oxford dancing skills blended with the obligatory “Schunkeln” to the sound of German brass music. Others still even managed to fit in some rides on the most thrilling Wiesn roller coasters before returning back to their beers.
The event was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends but also to meet plenty of new fellow Alumni, some of which travelled long distances from London and Oxford to attend this unique and fun-filled event.
