My friend Kurt and I continued our quest to attend the greatest festivals and parties in the world and the “real” Oktoberfest in Munich has been on our list for some time now. True to what we heard, Oktoberfest does have a sort of Bavarian charm, but is also chocked full of tourists. We figured that we could only take so much of the tourists, giant pretzels and bratwurst, so we decided to start the trip with five days in Berlin – a serious party town in itself.
Berlin didn’t dissapoint. The mix of history, architecture and nightlife made for a surprisingly good trip.
