Oktoberfest 2017, Munich

I am one of the lucky souls who got a chance to witness the grandeur of this once in a year event - THE OKTOBERFEST.
Picture says it all - ONE WAY people! (P.C. Girish)
When I imagined the sight of Oktoberfest, I was expecting a street in Munich bursting with people, food and drinks all around. The actual sighting was not so different except there was no street – it was a huge open ground with a lot of people, drinks, music, food and GIGANTIC RIDES!
First things first – It’s a 16-18 day event majority of which is in second half of September and runs until the first weekend of October each year. It takes place every year at a huge open space near the train station Theresienwiese.

One day in Munich

"WOW, you will be in Munich! Take a hotel near the airport, hire a car and just drive on the Autobahn," a friend of mine suggested. Too bad, I just had one day and had to prioritize several other attractions over the Autobahn.
M for Munich
So, what all can you do when you are in Munich for just a day apart from enjoying the Bavarian beer?
