Oktoberfest returns after a two-year hiatus – in pictures

Oktoberfest in Germany is back after a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Revelers flock to venues at 9:00 a.m. local time for prime seats for the epic beer festival, which began with the mayor of Munich tapping the first keg and declaring “o’zapft is” or “clicked” in the Bavarian dialect.

Now in its 187th incarnation, Euronews has compiled a selection of the best Oktoberfest photos, featuring bicep-challenging beer mugs, dinner plant-sized pretzels, men and women in traditional attire, plus more.
