German Train On Oktoberfest Weekend

On board DB train RE37103 from Ulm to Augsburg, Germany. 6:26am, Saturday October 2, 2010.

The train arrived in Ulm 5:24am. The train station was already full of waiting passengers many of whom simply slept in the station the whole night. On board the train was packed like a Chinese one 20 years ago. I couldn’t have imagined that. But I forgot it was the last weekend of Oktoberfest 2010. These people were sacrificing a little sleep in order to enjoy a little more of the festival. However, I still had no idea how crazy Germans can be about Oktoberfest until the next day when I got to Munich.
