This year I finally managed to go together for an event with other bloggers at Oktoberfest. In this article I will show you my Dirndl outfit and a little photo diary of the event.
My decision to go to the Wiesn was very last minute. I drove on Friday from Berlin to Munich with friends for the opening weekend of Oktoberfest, the most famous german beer festival.
On Saturday morning, I went to the Jack Beauty’s department for hair and make up. I kept my hair straight as I wore a typical bavarian hat, but almost all the other girls wore braids à la Heidi, as it is a typical hairstyle for Oktoberfest.
All ready, we went to the Wiesn around midday. We had a table in one of the famous tent at Oktoberfest : Käfer, mostly famous as this is the tent where everyone rich and famous is going.
We had typical bavarian food, a few beer and we danced until late in the night before going to a Wiesnparty in P1. It was also my first time in P1. I have heard about this club since forever and I was super excited to go. I guess that a Wiesn after party wasn’t the best date as it was really super crowded so I will return another time, under more normal circonstances haha.
On Sunday, I woke up super early and went by myself to the Wiesn as I wanted to visit the area a bit before joining my friends for lunch later.
I have always heard that you have to arrive early at Oktoberfest but early in the morning the tent where not crowded at all and so I could enter every single one of them. My favourites were definitely the Käfer tent, where we stayed all Saturday, Hacker tent, there are so many young people inside and it is very fun and the Marstall tent, where I joined my friends for lunch on Sunday. The Marstall tent is definitely the most beautiful tent at Oktoberfest, decorated with a carousel in the middle of it.
On the Sunday morning I also walked through the many attractions and saw the Parade of Oktoberfest Landlords and Breweries.
Now about my Oktoberfest outfit. I asked myself many questions about what to wear at Oktoberfest and ended up buying an affordable Dirndl in Berlin before leaving to Munich. Most women coming from Munich wear the traditional Dirndl dress that goes under the knees. But I choose a Dirndl that goes over the knees just because I though if suited me better. If I return to Oktoberfest, I will also probably try to find a long Dirndl or I will even wear a leather shorts aka “lederhose” as this is also very modern for women now.
