September 16 2011 German Culture Newsletter




Albert Einstein was there fitting light bulbs to the outside of a tent as a teenager, and, something I find totally off putting, each of the over 100 oxen that are roasted during the festival has a name. Some rather different facts about the Munich Oktoberfest, that always begins on the third Saturday in September, and which are covered by this week’s German Culture article.

At the same time it is the peak of the grape harvesting season in Germany, with wine festivals and various long held traditions taking in place in the wine producing areas.

Mark Twain wrote in ‘A Tramp Abroad’, ‘The Germans are exceedingly fond of Rhine wines; they are put up in tall, slender bottles, and are considered a pleasant beverage. One tells them from vinegar by the label’. Well it might have been true then, but it isn’t any longer, the German vintners have returned to quality not quantity.
