The video shown here, provides a great overview of the Oktoberfest event, held each year in Munich, in the German state of Bavaria. For the uninitiated visitor to the Oktoberfest, this video will help you get your bearings as to what the festival of fun, food, and most of all beer is all about.
All about the beer festival
The narration in the video goes some way to explaining why the Oktoberfest is, in reality, about more than just beer and bratwurst, giving some context to the great cultural festival. A particularly interesting morsel of information is that the first rollercoaster ever to be built in Germany was located on the Oktoberfest event grounds, way back in the early 20th century.
