We bought a day-pass for the Public Transport system as we intended to visit a few spots on the outskirts of Munich today if we had time and energy.

It's the most popular and supposedly the best beer tent at Oktoberfest. We got there at 8:00 am and they let people in around 9:30. When they opened those doors it was like a riot. Everyone charged the doors and we just got shoved forward. My friends ...
