Four days last week the famous German Oktoberfest visited Oslo – Wednesday through Saturday. You no longer have to go to Munich, Germany, to experience the fantastic and fun atmosphere of the Oktoberfest.
For the second year in a row the Oktoberfest took place downtown in Oslo, at Youngstorget, serving German schnitzels, sausages, Bavarian fries and German Oktoberfest beer in the authentic Bavarian beer tent.
Tyrolean music, played by a South German band, and one liters of beer served by the pleasant servants in their traditional outfit like Dirndl and Lederhosen gave us the feeling of being in the heart of Bavaria.
