The YouTube video displayed below shows that there is more to Oktoberfest than just huge steins of beer filled to the brim.
Though don’t get us wrong, the tradition of imbibing massive amounts of the foamy amber stuff is certainly a big part of the event. But the video shown above gives a real sense of the carnival atmosphere, the feeling of fun, frivolity and friendliness, all of which truly defines Oktoberfest.
Whether you are taking in the sights and sounds of a colourful and traditional marching band, or indulging your inner thrill seeker by hopping on board one of the many fairground rides, Oktoberfest has become a playground for fun loving locals and tourists alike.
