Though it may be famous for its huge beer steins and rowdy beer tents, Oktoberfest has much more to offer. Link arms with the locals and swing to the oompahpah of Bavarian bands, marvel at traditional yodelling, admire colourful costumes, enjoy the open-air concerts and try some hearty German food served with a good dollop of Bavarian hospitality.

Clink your beer steins to Oktoberfest, the world's largest fair and one of the best festivals in Germany. Every year, more than six million visitors from all over the world descend on the German city of Munich to drink beer, eat sausages and join together in song.
