Oktoberfest in Advance

I am wondering if anyone has any links to Oktoberfest in Switzerland, it can be anywhere in the german speaking part of the country. I was considering going to Munich this year, but just going to get my feet wet here. Plus any links to traditional clothes for Oktoberfest...Shwyz, Zurich, Bern canton preferred.

Re: Oktoberfest in Advance

Go to the real thing in Munich. They copies I saw in Zurich were lame, lame, lame.

I am going the second weekend with a gang of Germans and Swiss.

Re: Oktoberfest in Advance

Uster is hosting its own "mocktoberfest" this year

http://www.oktoberfest-zuerich-oberland.ch/

As I live there, I'll probably drop by. But nothing beats the real thing. Dive in!

Re: Oktoberfest in Advance

I wanted to go to Munich, but the Swiss I know, which I will be going with this year, all have a disposition with the large crowds and puking. Next near I'll go to Munich, this year I'll go here. Unless of course I can get the whole week off and do them both.
Actually I see that, that one in Uster is almost 2 weeks after the Munich one. Maybe I will be spreading my "diplomacy" all over europe...

Re: Oktoberfest in Advance

I'll be there (Munich) for the last weekend if anyone wants to meet up.

I'd say I'll probably hang around the Zurich HB one a lot too

I sure has hell hope it isnt as cold as it was last year. I nearly froze my testicles off
