Welcome to our September issue! Of course, we start off this month with Germany’s most beloved and appreciated festival: the Oktoberfest. How can we not? After all, the official opening ceremony, where Munich’s mayor will tap this year’s first keg of Oktoberfest beer, takes place on 16 September, while the festivities will continue for over two weeks until 3 October. If you’re heading to Oktoberfest for the first time, be sure to read our writer Marilena Stracke’s beginner guide for it. In her feature, she gives practical tips and tricks and explains how to plan ahead, while making the most of the quintessential German experience. So, get in your dirndl or lederhosen, pack the stein and head to Munich. Like every year, it will surely be a party not to be missed. Furthermore, our September cover is adorned by none other than actor, environmental activist and author Hannes Jaenicke. He speaks to Discover Germany about his latest documentary on rhinos, his motivation to change the world and his newest book in which he explains why the world needs more mavericks. Or why not take a look at our interview with German actor Birte Glang? Having started off her career in the famous daily drama Unter uns on RTL, she went on to star in several cinema and TV productions and became the face of many high-end advertising campaigns. Find out why she fell in love with Los Angeles and more. If this still isn’t enough, several autumn-inspired design and fashion ideas, a film review and other topics like great architects and architectural photographers from Switzerland, enchanting art galleries in Austria, innovative financial technology companies from Germany and much, much more can be found in this issue. Sit back, relax and thanks for reading.
