It's Bavaria at its very best - yes it's the traditional Oktoberfest. Men don lederhosen, Bavarian hats and checked shirts, while dirndl skirts, dresses or blouses are de rigueur for the women of Munich. As well as fashion and hops, Bayern Munich sprinkle some of their stardust on the beer festival each year. Here star striker Robert Lewandowski is pictured with Anna Stachurska.
Bayern Munich: German club visit beer festival
Bayern striker Thomas Muller enjoys a beer at the club's annual visit to Oktoberfest. The Reds recorded a 5-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League on Tuesday.
He's won the Champions League with both Liverpool and Real Madrid as well as league titles with the Spanish club and Bayern. The move to Bayern also gave the midfielder the opportunity to expand his wardrobe. The beaming Alonso is pictured with his wife Nagore Aramburo.
When Mario Goetze signed for Bayern from Borussia Dortmund in 2013 was it on his mind that he would have the chance to pop into the Oktoberfest each year wearing traditional Bavarian costume?
The league champions clink their glasses together. More than seven million liters of beer is drunk during two weeks of the festival.

Bayern coach Pep Guardiola toasts his side's perfect start to the season in the league, cup and Champions League. Oktoberfest is the world's biggest beer festival - attracting more than six million people.
Suit you Sir! Kingsley Coman, Douglas Costa, Medhi Benatia and Franck Ribery scrub up well for the cameras.
Prost! Guardiola and his wife Cristina Serra (R) raise a glass to one another. Let's hope the club's Spanish coach just had the one given he will need a clear head as the Bundesliga leaders prepare to face second place Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.
Lewandowsk can be probably forgiven for enjoying an extra libation or two given he's scored 10 goals in his last three games.
Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal takes a swig from a stein in his traditional Bavarian outfit.
Bayern's chief executive officer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also treated himself to a drink in honor of the club's impressive start to the season.See also:
