Oktoberfest alternatives and a Hang-over Cure
By Stefan Hermansdorfer
I was born in a small village, about 40 kilometers away from Munich. At the age of 16 I began to visit Munich on weekends, just for shopping or having a coffee. When I was 20 I started to work in a picture agency as a trainee, then I changed to an advertising agency as a picture researcher. After two years I went back to a picture agency specialised on the topics food and interior. There, I started as an editor and wrote lots of small articles about interior image series.
After several years spent in the food industry, I started having my own restaurant. We are specialised on ribs and food from the smoker. Right now, my restaurant is not a spot at Spotted by Locals, but I hope my colleagues from Munich will write about it sooner or later.
I like travelling, cooking, eating, reading, writing, handicrafts work, playing the guitar and sports (swimming, surfing and boxing).
Since the day I started to work in Munich, I fell in love with it. Fortunately, my colleagues showed me a lot of interesting spots. I like the fact, that Munich for me, has something village-like, but in another dimension.
It’s just a one hour drive to go to the mountains or big lakes like Starnberger See. In Munich there is so much culture, very nice old buildings with character and there is a lot of tradition which the Bavarians are very proud of. But there are a lot of hidden pearls and black parties I want to show you. I hope I you share my enthusiasm!
