Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

Between Septem­ber 20th and Oc­to­ber 5th, those who are com­plet­ing a Ger­man course at did deutsch in­sti­tut Mu­nich who would like a change of pace after classes are over won't need to look too far to find something ex­cit­ing to do. It is Ok­to­ber­fest time; dur­ing the largest folk fest­iv­al in the world, Mu­nich cel­eb­rates its fam­ous Bav­ari­an tra­di­tion, hos­pit­al­ity and charm with polka mu­sic and pret­zels.

did deutsch-institut You aren't go­ing to be able to make it to Ger­many this year? Well that’s too bad! Per­haps there is a sim­il­ar cel­eb­ra­tion based on Mu­nich's ori­gin­al Ok­to­ber­fest not too far from you. After all, there are now over 3,000 cop­ies of Mu­nich's tra­di­tion-filled beer fest­iv­al throughout the world. Of­ten, the ori­gins of these Ok­to­ber­fest “cop­ies” date back to im­mig­rants. But some­times there is a en­tre­pren­eur be­hind the scenes.

This is how one of Ger­many's largest busi­ness con­cerns foun­ded Tokyo's Ok­to­ber­fest in 1996. For three days in Oc­to­ber, cel­eb­ra­tions take place there in a rep­lica of an au­then­t­ic Bav­ari­an beer tent. Fest­iv­al go­ers must pay an en­trance fee, which in­cludes free dump­lings and beer. The Ok­to­ber­fest in Bris­bane is not only the largest of its kind in Aus­tralia; it is cer­tainly one the fur­thest away from the ori­gin­al.

Since 1969, folks in Kit­chen­er-Wa­ter­loo in Canada have been hold­ing their Ok­to­ber­fest, which at­tracts ap­prox­im­ately 700,000 guests from around the world. Brazil's Ok­to­ber­fest at­tracts equally as many, and has been cel­eb­rated since 1983. The event, foun­ded by Ger­man im­mig­rants in the city of Blumenau, is today the second largest folk fest­iv­al in Brazil – second only to Car­ni­val in Rio de Janeiro!

Students' Corner:
Why Munich?

Volodymyr from Ukraine: "Mu­nich is a cool city with many beauti­ful his­tor­ic build­ings and mo­numents to visit. I es­pe­cially like the English Garden, be­cause you can have a lot of fun there. After class, I like best to vis­it a beer garden, go to one of the vari­ous mu­seums or do some shop­ping. The last two months in Germany were the best of my entire life. I have im­proved my Ger­man skills and gotten to know many new friends. Above all else, to learn Ger­man at did deutsch-in­sti­tut Mu­nich was the ab­so­lute best idea." Read more
