To have a perfect Oktoberfest, even if you´re not in Munich on the "Wiesn" is easy. Just find a Brauhaus or a beer garden like the one we have here in Berlin and follow these simple rules:
1. wear a dirndl
Buy or rent a real bavarian traditional dress made out of heavy cotton that comes with horn buttons or ribbons, a puff sleeved blouse and a matching apron to tie in the back. A real dirndl ends always beyond the kneeline, has a nipped in waist and a forming bodice to create the perfect cleavage without any shapewear or even a bra. Combine it with cute mary jane shoes, heartshaped jewellery and a braided hairdo decorated with roses or daisies. Less is more - stay classic.
Don´t go for these cheap imitations because a real dirndl is worth the money and will make the best out of every girls body.
2. eat good bavarian food
Bavarian food sometimes doesn´t look good but it tastes delicious. Everybody knows the Bretzl, but try the liver dumpling soup and the sausage "Weißwurst" with sweet mustard too. For vegetarians the spicy cheese "Obazda" is recommended.
3. drink German beer
4. have fun, dance, make new friends
