Video: Where to Travel to Find the World's 2nd Largest Oktoberfest

Posted on 09/27/2018

Munich's annual extravaganza of beer halls, buxom girls in dirndls, pretzels and the best of the 'wurst' (pun intended!) actually gets underway in September. Its origins in Germany involve a wedding and a harvest festival, but now, Munich's Oktoberfest is one of the most famous multi-day parties in the world.

If you're missing Bavaria's biggest party this year, you're not out of luck yet: Germans have taken the festival's spirit of beer hall fellowship ('gemutlichkeit') and love of great German food with them where they've settled in other lands.

So the world's SECOND largest Oktoberfest might be closer than you imagine. And they don't tap the first keg until October.

So dust off your lederhosen, find your beer stein, round up a few of your best friends and celebrate one of the most famous months of the year!
