The apron that women wear has a secret – if it is tied on the left, they are available; on the right, they are taken. Handy to know.

After 5pm the beer halls get crowded as people leave work and come to the party. So get your table early. The bands also play more foreign and popular songs intermixed with their traditional German ones.

They don’t put mustard on their pretzels here, but they do on their weisswurst. They put sour cream on their baked potatoes but call it yoghurt.

Most tents have their own themes, rooted in the traditional German labor force. You have the Fischer Vroni tent celebrates the fishermen; Hacker Festzelt seems to celebrate the lumber jack; Schutzen-Festzelt is for the hunters.
