O’zapft is! - It's tapped! Finally the best time of year in Munich is here again. The 186th Oktoberfest begins on Saturday at midday, and FC Bayern are in action just as the first barrels are opened. The record champions entertain FC Köln at the Allianz Arena at 15.30 CEST. The Oktoberfest provides a welcome change from football for the FCB pros. Whether it's a tin can shy, bursting balloons or in the carnival marquee, Bayern love their fifth season of the year, as is obvious from our Looking Back photo feature: Javi Martínez and Bastian Schweinsteiger, not only holding midfielders together for the treble winners in 2013, but also at home at the Oktoberfest.

Right at the start of the Oktoberfest, Javi tested himself in the Bayern challenge. Also, there will be tweets in the Bavarian dialect on our Twitter channel for the Köln game on Saturday.

In our 'Looking Back' series, fcbayern.com regularly retrieves treasures from the photo archives. Look forward to these special snapshots.
