Oktoberfest – Lost and Found

leave a comment »

Every year more and more visitors turn up at the Oktoberfest and amazing things get lost and found. In the two week festival, 6.9 million visitors had some 7.5 million litres of beer. But what is more entertaining is the list of lost items – which makes up an interesting read always.

Below is an Info-graphic of the items deposited in the lost & found office, for the last 5 years. Click on image for a larger version 🙂

This year (2011) the authorities received:
1 live, eight-centimeter-long grasshopper
1 Viking helmet
1 Denture
2 crutches,
1 electric wheelchair (just how?)
1 rucksack containing two foldable camping chairs
1 case full of musical notes
1,300 items of clothing
520 wallets
over 1,000 identity cards
390 mobile phones
370 pairs of eyeglasses (wow!!)
90 cameras
80 items of jewellery and watches
425 keys

The http://www.muenchen.de/ website says that, what is not claimed gets auctioned. Now who would want a set of dentures, I wonder 🙂
