Munich’s Oktoberfest set to return

STORY: Munich’s Oktoberfest is coming back

for the first time in two years

MUNICH MAYOR, DIETER REITER, SAYING:

“I have decided to ask the city’s administration to make the Oktoberfest 2022 possible without any restrictions. I would be delighted if people stayed healthy again and regret their visit to the Oktoberfest only because they need three headache pills the next day.”

Reiter says the decision did not come lightly

“Ultimately, everyone needs to decide for himself whether or not they feel like partying there. I certainly do not want to be the one raising his finger and saying ‘anyone who attends does not have any respect for the people of Ukraine. Far from it.”

About 6 million revellers usually attend

There’s a possibility the festival could still be called off

depending on the state of the health crisis
