To make sure that you sound like you know what you are doing when you have the privilege of entering one of the many beer tents, we have put together a handy Oktoberfest dictionary that will guide you through the ins and outs of the festival:

Oans, zwoa, gsuffa: This essentially means "cheers" in Bavarian and literally translates into "one, two, drink!" Make sure you have a Maß (a litre of beer) in your hand when the cheering commences, and don't be afraid to toast with everyone in sight

Halbes Hendl: This is a roasted half chicken. The most popular dish to eat during the fest

Dirndl: The original Bavarian dress for women

Lederhosen: Traditional knee-length leather trousers worn by men

Magenbrot: A sweet kind of cake. Don't eat this until your stomach is able to handle solid food again

Maß: One litre of beer

Radler: A mixture of beer and lemonade. Drink this when you feel like you need to slow down a bit

Schorle: A mixture of fruit juice and sparkling water. Does not contain any alcohol

Spezi: A mixture of cola and orange soft drink. Does not contain any alcohol

Wiesn: When locals mention this, they are talking about Oktoberfest. This is a derivation of "Theresienwiese", where the event takes place.

 

Enjoy Oktoberfest, and remember do not drink and drive!
