What an exciting day it has been! This morning we went to K&K Coffee Restaurant for a meeting with the Oktoberfest team a taste test, thanks to Wolfgang. Be sure to watch ‘The Great South East’ on Sunday at 5:30pm on Channel 7.

The happy couple arrived in Brisbane about a week ago and have been enjoying the sunshine, as they’ve been out and about exploring Brisbane.
However they just couldn’t decide WHAT to try first for lunch – the Leberkäse & Spätzle? or Jägerschnitzel? or Wolfgang’s special club sandwich? So we sampled them while they were busy deciding …

O’zapft is!

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

Jugendfreizeit – from surfing to snowboarding!

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful start to the week.

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 for the ‘What’s Hot?’ question. There are some fantastic ‘must sees’ in Munich, but only one place to go surfing!

Das war’s für heute! Have a fabulous week and always remember to…
