This week’s Friday night event will take us on a journey through Germany from Hamburg (EDDH) to Munich (EDDM), where Oktoberfest is held every year.
Oktoberfest is the world’s largest Volksvest (beer festival and travelling funfair). Although cancelled this year, the folk festival runs for about 16-18 days from mid/late September to the first Sunday of October.
There will be 6 stops (including the destination - Munich). At each stop, we will provide enough time to have an optional beverage of your choice (water, juice, soft drinks…). Please drink responsibly. You are responsible for your choice of beverage and for your behaviour throughout the event and the live stream. The rules that you’ve accepted in the Discord will still be in effect. If you break any of the rules, you’ll be muted and/or banned based on the organizer’s judgement. This is a welcoming and fun community, so let’s have fun!
