1 Litre Beer at Frühlingsfest - Click Here to View Hi-Res Image

My first stop on my European trip was Munich, Germany. I only had one full day there, so my host and his friend (whom I had both hosted here in Singapore) made sure I made the most out of it by taking me around the city. My host had talked about a “mini-Oktoberfest” even before I flew out to Germany, and this was one of our stops later in the day. Frühlingsfest (spring festival) was held on the same grounds as Oktoberfest. In fact, according to my host, it’s a lot like Oktoberfest: Crazy rides, carnival games, and beer halls. The major differences are that it’s on a much smaller scale, and there are a lot more locals than tourists. We went into one of the beer halls, of course, and I indulged in a huge liter mug of beer.
