This year the incredible Oktoberfest in Germany celebrates its 180th birthday. More than six million people are expected to descend on Munich for the three-week long festival, which runs from September 21 to October 6. In 2012 the organisers estimated that 6.9 million litres of beer was consumed during the festivities. From the heaving beer tents to the fun-filled fairground, this is one event for the bucket list. Dressing for the event, either by donning a traditional Dirndl dress or Lederhosen, has also become increasingly popular, so don’t be afraid to make the effort! Ein Prosit der Gemütlichkeit! (Cheers!)
