The world's biggest beer festival opens for the 180th time on Saturday sparking 16 days of drinking, dirndls and cheesy pop music.

With Munich expected to welcome more than six million guests over the next two weeks preparations for this year's Oktoberfest started as soon as 2012's festivities ended.

And although the festival does not official start until Saturday, journalists have been given a preview of the site this week.

The Local has put together some of the best photos of the preparations below.
