Munich Oktoberfest 2010 - Extra Day Added

To help celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Oktoberfest an extra day has been added to this year's event!

Instead of closing on the first Sunday in October, Munich city officials have just announced that it will now run an extra day through to Monday October the 4th.

This extra day should special in many ways, for example the beer tents don't hand out reservations for most of their seats, so that it will be easier to get a place at a table for locals and guests, who didn't announce their presence beforehand.

There will also be a special event before the Oktoberfest officially opens. On September 17th, a historic reconstruction of the festival in former centuries will be opened, featuring an old Oktoberfest-tent and an exhibition of domestic and working animals of those times. One of the many highlights will be the horse-races, which are planned to be held twice a day, to remember the origins of the Oktoberfest - a horse race to celebrate a royal wedding in Munich.
