Bavarian-style fun in Dortmund: Oktoberfest on the Wischlinger Wiesn fairground
Let’s be honest. Bavaria is all well and good. But it’s a long way away. So instead of sitting in the car for hours on end, it is much more relaxing to pop to the Oktoberfest in the Ruhr Region.
You’ll hardly notice the difference – apart from the fact that the accent is easier to understand here. And in Dortmund they can put on the typical Bavarian Dirndl and Lederhosen, drink lots of beer and party away in the Bavarian style tent on a fairground, too – just that the fairground is in the Revierpark Wischlingen instead of in Munich.
