Events and festivals

Sunday, October 7 2018

The Oktoberfest is drawing to a close.

Every year, there is a tradition in Munich to signal the end of the Oktoberfest, the biggest festival in the region: the gun salute.
It's quite normal to hear the shooters training from September onwards: they're preparing for this great day to show this tradition at its best.
The tradition dates back to the end of the 15th century. Legend has it that these canon shots were also used to expel evil spirits.

On Sunday 7 October 2018 :
