Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival. It is a major festivity in the Bavarian culture having been celebrated since 1810. During the fair, lasting from mid-September until the first weekend of October, people drink traditional beer and eat several types of food, mostly meat. The traditional menu includes roast pork, roast chicken, grilled ham, grilled fish, sausages, potato and bread dumplings, pretzels, potato pancakes and something called “white sausages” and a delicacy called Obatzda (a spicy cheese spread).
Aside from the mouthwatering street food, Oktoberfest also presents loads of entertainment, from amusement rides to sidestalls and games.
