Munich: Oktoberfest

Munich (the capital of Bavaria) is the city with the largest Oktoberfest in the world. I live in Kitchener, Ontario (once called Berlin) which hosts the biggest Oktoberfest outside of Germany.

My first time in Munich this summer made a memorable impression on me: the amazing state of the art BMW museum (which I will take you inside on a future post) and the fascinating architectural attractions of both historic and modern buildings.

Street musicians are amazing! Click on photo and watch them play!

Oktoberfest in Canada starts on Thanksgiving weekend–harvest time, a time to thank God for the abundance of healthy food: every type of vegetable and all sorts of fruit! Here’s the turkey I’m going to serve this year. (I didn’t make this one in the photo, but here’s the one I made last year.)

These photos of my Dirndl were taken today (not in Munich). I bought this outfit in Dinklesbühl in 1982.

Love my ❤ pendant and earrings. The skirt has little red hearts embroidered on the hemline. I like the lacy knit of these knee socks and have them in different colours.

Happy Thanksgiving!! We are blessed!!

    You are always so colour coordinated …the red rose bush is so complimentary to your Dirndl.
    Flower pots certainly add to the architectural features.

    I love the architecture. So detailed and amazing. This would be such a wonderful time and truly part of the culture. I love the Dirndl you are wearing, the checks and details on the skirt with the bold red.

    This is one of my favorite posts, because it is about Munchen – a beautiful city very close to my heart! I didn’t visit the BMW Museum even though it is in the neighborhood of the apartment in which my son lived almost 10 years ago… I’m waiting to share with us photos and memories related to this museum.
    You look so very nice in traditional German costume, my dear Carmen! Love it!
    ❤️ Ileana
