In April 2017 my wife and I visited Mt. Angel to celebrate our 27th wedding an­ni­ver­sa­ry. Mt. Angel is famous for it’s Oktoberfest. First held in 1966 with an attendance of 39,000, these days it can attract huge crowds of up to 400,000! In a town of only 3,500! Fortunately, the day we were there was calm and uncrowded.

After having lunch at the Glockenspiel Restaurant we walked around the small town, taking in sights like the Edelweiss Building with its glockenspiel tower, the Oktoberfest Joy sculpture and the historic (finished 1912) Gothic Revival St. Mary Catholic Church.

For details about my previous 2012 visit to Mt. Angel and Silverton, see the article Catholic Goats and a Lutheran Church and the accompanying Mt. Angel and Silverton 2012 photo album.

The photos in this album were taken with the  Olympus OM-D E-M5  camera.
