Beautiful bored people in Munich, it feels like summer is already here and soon enough it’ll be Wiesn time again…
And if you’ve been here a while, I’m sure you know just tough it can be to score a reservation (full guide on that here)… but every once in a while, an epic opportunity comes up and today is that day!
According to Muenchen.de, The City of Munich is giving away TEN pairs of tickets to attend the ceremonial 1st keg tapping for Oktoberfest 2019, which will be taking place on Sept 21, 2019 in the Schottenhammel tent. If you’ve ever dreamt of being there when the mayor hollers those famous words ““O’zapft is!”, then this is your chance to enjoy it for free, with zero stress/waiting times AND in the swanky Ratsboxe.
… Beer and chicken is included, natürlich.
Winners will be chosen based from a raffle, and anyone over 18 with their main residence in Munich can enter.
Raffle tickets are available for free from June 1st until June 13. Simply head to the City Information located in Marienplatz (in the New Rathaus), get a ticket and hand it in. Winners will be announced on Sunday June 16 at 3pm in Marienplatz.
So, to recap…
