How to Enjoy Munich Oktoberfest ... without Beer
There is a fairly general misconception that Oktoberfest can be pretty lame or fairly boring if you are a non-drinker or don't actually like beer, but seriously, nothing could be further from the truth. Oktoberfest is the world's largest Volkfest (Meaning People's Fair or festival) so it goes without saying that if it's for the people, then it can't just be about drinking right? Well .... that is actually right. The famous German beer festival to end all beer festivals is gargantuan in size, over 40 hectares in fact, and only about half of it is covered in beer halls and beer tents so there is much to do besides guzzling beer.

Munich Oktoberfest - The Veteran and the First Timer
When Mayor Dieter Reiter tapped the first barrel in Munich and passed a stein to the President of the State of Bavaria last weekend he was kicking off something that is seriously BIG. Not only was the size of the beer in his hand extremely large, he was beginning an event that is so enormous in scale that it really must be seen to be believed. Europe's biggest festival - and it's all about beer, or bier as the Germans spell and drink it.

Why is Bavarian Beer So Good
Throughout Germany, beer is extremely popular, so much so that it is now an interwoven and intricate part of German daily life and culture. Maintaining over 1,300 breweries, Germany has more breweries than any other country (except for the United States) and the highest density of those breweries can be found in the Bavaria Region, in the South East of the country.
