The Theresienwiese (Wiese-meadow) in Munich, where the Oktoberfest takes place, is getting a new grass layer these days. After millions of visitors have trampled over the Wiesn, the City of Munich has now decided that a new grass layer is in order on an area of 45.000 square meters in the southern part of the Theresienwiesen. In spring, Munichers and guest should be able to marvel at the new green splendour.
Because of the mild temperatures (until this Friday) the work on the restoration could begin quickly after the end of the Oktoberfest. The Theresienwiese is known in addition to their recreational use as a venue for festivals like Oktoberfest or the smaller Spring Festival. Also, the African Festival and other events take place on the surface below the Bavaria. The next major event on the Theresienwiesen is just around the corner, on November 24 the Tollwood Winter Festival begins. You can find out more about it here.
