Mid-September to the beginning of October is the time for Oktoberfest, the most attended people’s holiday in Münich. It has been celebrated for two centuries. The annual beer festivity attracts up to 6 million visitors from the world over.
The beverage customarily drunk at the event is a special sort of beer that can be gotten only this time of year. It is aged longer than it is usual, has a distinct malt flavor and alcohol content from 5.8 to 6.3. Oktoberfest is also famous for its enormous beer tents that house up to 10,000 people. Only the city’s brewers are allowed to cater for the holiday.
Snacks to go with beer include chicken roasted Bavarian way, large pretzel, white Münich sausages, sauerkraut and potato dumplings.
The highlights are beer tent rounds, opening of the first beer keg, costume processions and fairground attractions.
