It was my dream since the college years to visit Oktoberfest with all its fun, beer and thematic celebrations. And only 10 years later while sitting in the bus on the road to office I saw an advertising telling “Don’t miss bicentennial Oktoberfest with the Löwenbräu beer!”.
It was a sign from above! Besides, as my wife was born in Germany she wanted to see her town of birth – Weimar.
We made our reservations and voila!
Logistics: Munich, Weimar, Buchenwald, Berlin
Dates: Sep 20 – Sep 27, 2010
Transport used: Plane, train, bus
Lodging: Ambient Hotel Colina (Munich), Labyrinth Hostel Weimar, Wombats City Hostel Berlin
Memories: Beer, pork sharks, Bavarian costumes, German tidiness, Buchenwald
Next station – Weimar. A beautiful calm town, the ideal place to meet old age.
The last stop was Berlin that met us with rain and cold. We’ve been in Reichstag with its combination of hi-tech inside and old architecture outside.
