The Oktoberfest attracts millions of people, who then celebrate drunkenly in the tent - and cause a Oktoberfest mess, as a waitress shows.
Munich - On the Theresienwiese there is a state of emergency every year from mid-September to early October - if it is not Corona. The Oktoberfest attracts millions of visitors who do not always know how to behave because of the alcohol. But even unintentionally, it's possible to help with the biggest mess of the year. A Oktoberfest waitress has now filmed what it looks like in the tent when all guests have to leave.
Oktoberfest waitress films typical Oktoberfest mess after 23 p.m.
After 23 p.m., visitors to the Oktoberfest stagger, walk or sway out of their tents in the direction of a hotel, taxi, train or home. But while the visitors start their journey home with a full belly and an empty wallet, for some the real work is just beginning. Namely, tidying up in the tents, which, according to the video of a waitress, could be anything but fun at first glance.
Oktoberfest waitress Eva is very active on social media and proudly shares her moments. How she wears a lot of measures at once, which is reminiscent of another viral video of a Oktoberfest waitress. Or she films herself with a colleague during the break. But she also kept an eye on what it looks like in the tent - here as an example the Schützen-Festzelt - when the guests have to go out.
Respect for Oktoberfest staff who clean up after the Oktoberfest pig bears after the end
Half-full mugs, where the beer has found its way not only into the mouth, but also onto the floor, everywhere torn or broken menus, napkins and all sorts of forgotten objects such as umbrellas or the like. The tables that stand on the benches have usually been placed by the staff in such a way that they can clean underneath. So it's a huge Oktoberfest mess. However, the hard-boiled staff has probably seen a lot and is not deterred by such a sight, but for the normal Oktoberfest visitor it is certainly interesting to see the other side of the coin.

The comments under the video, which was also shared by a meme site, are mainly written by Oktoberfest opponents who express their incomprehension as to how this could be done to themselves. "I can smell the video" and "that's why I'm not going," write a few who express their dislike. However, many people also pay great respect to the waitresses, the cleaning staff and everyone who works there. "I couldn't do that" or "The poor who need to clean up," they say. And if you enter the tent again the following day, you will notice that there is nothing left of the chaos. (ank)
