The Octoberfest (Oktoberfest) is the greatest Beer fest in Germany as well as in the whole world. In spite of its name it is held yearly, for about 20 decades, during 16 days from mid September until the beginning of October (during 16 days).
 
The fair is opened with traditional parade of carriages with horses that march from the city center, carrying large bier barrels. At noon the city mayor opens one of the barrels with strong hit using hammer and chisel.
 
He pours the first glass and all the crowd cheer loudly. Large tents that contain hundreds of seats are ready for the celebrants.
 
Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for tickets and accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.
 
The Millions of bier glasses, sausages and grilled chickens that are consumed create an unforgettable, unique and happy event.

Germany background and overview:
As Europe's largest economy and second most populous nation, Germany remains a key member of the continent's economic, political, and defense organizations. European power struggles immersed Germany in two devastating World Wars in the first half of the 20th century and left the country occupied by the victorious Allied powers of the US, UK, France, and the Soviet Union in 1945. With the advent of the Cold War, two German states were formed in 1949: the western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the eastern German Democratic Republic (GDR). The democratic FRG embedded itself in key Western economic and security organizations, the EC, which became the EU, and NATO, while the Communist GDR was on the front line of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact. The decline of the USSR and the end of the Cold War allowed for German unification in 1990. Since then, Germany has expended considerable funds to bring Eastern productivity and wages up to Western standards. In January 1999, Germany and 10 other EU countries introduced a common European exchange currency, the euro.
