    "Apparently hundreds of thousands of chickens are eaten every year at Oktoberfest Munich. I like chicken. A psychic once told me I was a cock sparrow in a former life. I'm a big fan of the Bavarian suit, I'd wear that if heading to Oktoberfest. Good job I don't have a wattle anymore. I wouldn't get the tie on."

    "Even though I have a false leg I do like to get my pins out occasionally. I find that letting them breathe is good for the skin, that and bathing with olive oil. That's the plant and not the Popeye character. I don't think she'd like that. Not that I need a reason to drink, but, the Bavarian Beer Woman costume looks good to me."

    "Having worn a few dresses in my time I am fully aware about how attractive I look dressed as a woman. I've had at least a dozen drinks bought for me, been proposed to by cricketer whose name I won't mention and had to turn down several modelling contracts. With this in mind, I'd love to wear the Pink Bavarian Beer Girl costume. After all, Ian Botham said I looked divine in something dead similar …"

3 Tips When Heading To The Munich Oktoberfest


After researching the event and discovering a few of the common pitfalls, here's a few tips to hopefully help things go smoothly on your drunking expedition.

Be Vigilant With Your Possessions
Losing your stuff is a common occurrence in Munich. Not the city in general but the beer festival. It would seem that the plethora of drinking that goes on tends to dampen the brain cells and causes folk to forget and leave stuff when they are otherwise going to be needing it. The website Stylight put together a superb infographic following last year's festival showing how serious an issue it really is. Statistics included almost 1,000 items of lost clothing, over a 1,000 lost ID cards and over 300 missing mobile phones. Keep this in mind as they will charge you for returning your own property. Here's an interesting figure for you, having your driving license returned to you will set you back €10, just think, they are making 10 grand just on making sure people can drive home from the airport. Madness.

Enjoy Having A Seat? Sit Down And Stay!
This year there will be somewhere in the region of 7,200,000 visitors on site for Oktoberfest. That's roughly the entire population of Hong Kong. Even if you divide that total over the 16 days, it still works out 72 people per individual seat. Our tip? Sit down, stay, chain yourself to the spot and explore one tent per day. Unless you like a nice stand up in which case go and explore as if you're a young Phileas Fogg.

Don't Steal The Beer Steins
You might want to take one of the steins that you were drinking out of for a nice memento of your visit. That's a great idea. You can buy them on site and take them home. Whatever you do don't try and nick one. They big burly security guards won't take kindly to this and will proceed to fine you on the spot something stupid like €50. Stop and buy one. We can guarantee that the gift shop will not charge that much.

Let us know what you choose and share a photo with us on Twitter, we'd love to see!
