9 Of The Weirdest Things Lost (& Found) At Oktoberfest

With all that lovely beer sloshing around, you're bound to lose more than just your inhibitions (& dignity) but, whilst lots of keys & IDs are lost, some people manage to outshine all others in their stupidity. Here's 9 of the oddest things that have turned up at the official Oktoberfest lost & found office.

1. Cat Carrier

This year's oddest item to turn up in the Oktoberfest Lost & Found? A cat carrier. No one knows whether kitty & owner enjoyed their time at Oktoberfest, but we hope they both (well, the cat at least) got home safely.

2. Ball and Chain

Wallet: check. Keys: check. Ball and chain...? Why someone decided to take a heavy, metal ball and chain to a beer festival is a mystery, however it did amuse the lads at lost property.

3. x4 Bayern Munich Tickets

Oh dear, oh dear. Not only did this unlucky Oktoberfest-goer lose 4 tickets to see champion side Bayern Munich play, it looks as though they may have lost their 3 friends & fellow Munich fans, too.

4. Bayern Munich Gnome

Sticking with the football theme, last year saw the loss of a Bayern Munich gnome. We like to think Gnomey & pals had such a great day at the Oktoberfest, they just couldn't go back to the dull life of sitting by a garden pond.

5. Signed Playboy Magazine

When drinking at a beer festival, there's nothing better than showing off signed Playboy magazines, am I right? Well that's just what happened when this little beauty turned up in 2012.

6. An 8cm Long Living Grasshopper

And you thought taking your cat to Oktoberfest was strange? This not-so-little fella just couldn't get enough of the hoppy goodness in the tents.

7. A Court Order

Hundreds of ID cards & passports turn up every year in the lost & found, however, to date, there's only been one person stupid enough to lose their court order. Well said, Judy.

8. A Fishing Rod

You might not know this, but Munich is surrounded by beautiful, tranquil lakes, which is why we like to think that this lowly fisherman just got a little waylaid on his way to an afternoon at the 'See'.

9. A Dachshund Called 'Wasti'

We started with cats, so we'll end with dogs - this little chap named 'Wasti' was promised a day of specially brewed beer & fairground rides, all he got was an evening in the lost property office. Well, you can't win them all.
