After a two-year Corona break, it was finally back in Munich: O'zapft is! Mayor Dieter Reiter (64) opened the 187th Oktoberfest on Saturday (September 17) and seemed slightly out of practice: At 12 noon sharp he tapped the first keg of beer with three taps - in previous years he only needed two .

Markus Söder drinks the first measure

He handed the first measure to the Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder (55), who a short time later showed on Instagram how happy he was about the return of the Oktoberfest. 'The Munich Oktoberfest is always like a big homecoming and reunion,' says Söder.

These celebs are celebrating on Tapping Day

A few celebrities don't want to miss out on the first Oktoberfest weekend either and diligently shared their impressions of the Theresienwiese.

Actress Laura Osswald (40) posted a photo of herself at the Tiffany Wiesn immediately after the tapping, where numerous other celebrities and influencers cavorted.

Moderator Cathy Hummels (34) also braved the rain and came to the Oktoberfest in a mint green dirndl.

Moderator Kai Pflaume (55) posted a selfie from the Paulaner marquee via Instagram and virtually toasted his followers to a 'peaceful Wiesn'.

And pop singer Patrick Lindner (61) threw himself into costume to celebrate the Oktoberfest tapping.

Around 6 million visitors expected

The traditional Oktoberfest tapping takes place every year in the Schottenhamel tent. In 2022, the folk festival lasts from September 17th to October 3rd. Around six million visitors from all over the world are usually expected at the Oktoberfest. The price for a beer this year is between 12.60 and 13.80 euros.
