BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch: Jovial get-together for the BMW sport family at Oktoberfest.

Press release available only in original language. 

Since Saturday, the 185th #oktoberfest on the Theresienwiese has once again been thrilling millions of visitors from all over the world. This can mean only one thing: it is time for the BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch. For the ninth time, BMW invited well-known athletes and guests from various sports, as well as its sport and brand ambassadors, to the largest and most famous fair in the world.

BMW Motorsport Director #jensmarquardt toasted the “fifth season”. He was joined by guests including BMW works driver and Brand Ambassador Alessandro Zanardi (ITA), BMW Classic ambassadors Katarina Witt (GER) and Prince Leopold of Bavaria (GER), and BMW works drivers from the DTM and endurance racing, as well as Olympic gold medallists, world champions and top winter sport athletes. Olympic luge champion Natalie Geisenberger (GER) presented all five of her medals in public for the first time during the BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch.

In keeping with tradition, the BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch began with a jovial stroll around #oktoberfest; the action on the Devil’s Wheel, bumper cars and the Münchner Rutschn (slide) was predictably competitive. This was followed by the more relaxed part of the BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch, in the wonderful atmosphere of the Käfer-Wiesn-Schänke, where athletes past and present discussed their sports and much more over a snack and a beer.
