[Ad] WATCH THIS BEFORE YOU COME TO OKTOBERFEST! 🥨⬆️ Every year, I see newbies struggling their way around the good ol’ Wiesn, so I threw all my best tips into this video for @Omio ! It’s one of my favourites I’ve done for them so I hope you like it too!
The video has loads of info, but I’ll repeat the most important points! 🍻
1️⃣ Bring cash or cry. The servers barely have time for you as is, and no cards are accepted, so unless you wanna get laughed all the way out the tent (dw, there’s 17 big ones and 21 small ones), bring them coinz
2️⃣ Tipping is weird in Germany. Basically, you give your server the money and tell them the total you want to pay, tip included. No leaving coins on the table, no stealthily shaking it into their hand nonsense... you say what you wanna pay, and get change accordingly
3️⃣ Tip well and your server will keep coming back. Don’t tip, and well..... hope you enjoy being thirsty ;)
4️⃣ You should also tip the bathroom attendants because I can truly imagine no worse job than cleaning toilets for millions of drunkards
5️⃣ The festival has loads of side entrances. USE THEM! They’re usually less crowded
6️⃣ don’t miss the Oide Wiesn! It’s seriously like a time machine. It costs 3 euros extra but is like this magical wonderland that the super drunk people don’t know about, so a wholesome and adorable atmosphere without as many crowds!
7️⃣ The beer here is strong, likely stronger than you’re used to. Pace (and line your stomach!!!) accordingly
8️⃣ Finally, an epic Oktoberfest hack I love: if you have a coat, bring a tote or plastic bag that fits it, then you can throw it in the bag, tie it under the table (on the leg), and have ease of mind that it won’t get dirty or stolen
Oktoberfest vets, am I missing anything? I’ll see you all at the festival tomorrow! 🤓🥨🍻👸🏻 #Oktoberfest #Wiesn
