Gadling’s 2007 Oktoberfest Coverage

Grüss Gott!

Ah, Oktoberfest — the world’s largest fair with some six-million revelers gathering each year. Beginning September 22, 2007, when the mayor of Munich, Germany kicks off the festival by shouting, “O’zapft is!” (“It’s tapped!”) and lasting until October 7th, this year’s d’ Wiesn will surely break records. Last year, over 6.1-million beers were served, and 219,443 pairs of sausages were scarfed down. Have a look at our galleries, articles, travel guides, and maps covering this year’s Oktoberfest — it’s not to be missed!
