Prelude to the Oktoberfest.

Oktoberfest is undoubtedly the greatest event of the year in Munich. And to fittingly herald the coming of this festival, a grand parade known as the Einzug der Wiesnwirte is held in the city's streets.
Setting off from the Josephspitalstraße, the procession of carts makes its way through the Bavarian capital. You can watch marching bands and dance troupes parade by, as well people in traditional dress. You will also find stalls offering local dishes, and beer.
The origins of this ceremony date back to the 19th century. More than just a festival, it is something of a real tradition of Munich.
