Any event boasting millions of visitors is sure to have a treasure of personal items left behind. Throw in a shitload of drinking and that number increases exponentially. So what are some items left at this year’s Oktoberfest in Munich?
An estimated 2,915 items
An estimated 2,915 items were turned into the lost and found office with 680 pieces of clothing (those crowded tents get hot), 660 generously returned wallets (count the money), 580 passports (good luck at the airport), 410 smartphones that can hopefully be tracked by its owners, 250 glasses (possibly chucked when blurry drunk vision ruled them useless) and 220 keys.
90 bags, 55 pieces of jewelry, 55 umbrellas/canes and 15 cameras were also turned into the lost and found offices.
The best item to turn up? A doctor’s note for work disability that lasted for the duration of the festival.
