This past Saturday saw the official opening of the Munich Oktoberfest 2013.
At 6 seconds to 12pm, the major, Christian Ude, performed the official tapping of the keg and shouted the words “O’zapft is!”
You can watch a video of this at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3Qj82ROWPs
Don’t miss a second of the 2013 Munich Oktoberfest, by watching the live webcam, which sweeps across the Theresienwiese from the top of the Hofbräu tent.

The second quiz is now ready for you to download under the ‘quizzes’ tab and is all about free time!
What do German teenagers like to do in their free time? Do they do similar things to Australian teenagers or do they spend their free time learning how to make Brezeln and Lebkuchen?
Don’t forget to check out http://www.germany.travel/youth/map/germany for the ‘What’s Hot?’ question. There are some fantastic ‘must sees’ in Munich, but only one place to go surfing!
