Your Imagery Work Break – Munich Oktoberfest 2022

We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

October’s arrived and we’re thrilled about the brisk autumn air and spooky season. For your work break today, grab a seasonal drink (Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, baby!) and take a stroll among the changing foliage. While grabbing your drink, take a moment to check out this 30-centimeter (cm) Pléiades Neo 4 image collected over Munich, Germany at about 12:13 PM local time (Central European Time) on September 22, 2022; and so these images were captured during the 2022 Oktoberfest!

The Munich Oktoberfest is the world’s largest celebration of Bavarian culture. The festival generally attracts over 6 million visitors from around the globe to participate in this rich cultural event, full of brats, beers and bustiers.

The festival is held at Theresienwiese, where it has taken place since the fairgrounds opened in 1810. The fairgrounds also contain a memorial built for the 1980 Oktoberfest bombing.

At the 2022 Oktoberfest, over 5.6 million liters of beer were poured. Oktoberfest food includes lots of traditional delicacies, think pretzels, Weiner Schnitzel and sauerkraut galore. In addition to eating and drinking, Oktoberfest features a number of booths and amusement park rides for guests’ pleasure. Guests are also encouraged to wear traditional German clothing, including dirndl blouses, lederhosen and charivari. The festival includes a number of traditional performers and events, like parades, live brass bands, singers and dancers.

The 2022 Oktoberfest took place from September 17th to October 3rd, lasting the traditional two-week time frame. This Pléiades Neo image was collected on the afternoon of September 22nd, during the height of the festivities. You can clearly see the colorful display created by the tents and amusement rides in the image.

Have a great rest of your workday! 😊
