The world’s largest beer festival Oktoberfest is back in Germany

According to the announcement, Oktoberfest beer festival This year will take place from September 17 to October 3 at the Theresienwiese fairground in the city of Munich (in the German state of Bavaria), as was the custom every year before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out. Mayor Dieter Reiter said that this year’s festival will not limit the number of visitors.

Mayor Reiter stated that the decision to reopen the festival had been carefully considered and it was “not an easy decision” as the COVID-19 pandemic has not yet been fully controlled. He affirmed that in the current context, the cancellation of Oktoberfest 2022 is not possible. Accordingly, each citizen will decide for themselves whether they want to participate in the festival or not and to what extent. A corresponding resolution on the reopening of Oktoberfest will be presented to the City Council in May.

Bavarian Premier Markus Söder and State Economy Minister Hubert Aiwanger welcomed the decision. Premier Söder affirmed that organizing this traditional festival is a good sign, especially in the context that the festival has been canceled consecutively for the previous two years. He shared that he was very happy when the festival was reopened and was looking forward to the first ceremony.
