Of Europe's many great festivals, one of the wildest is Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Oktoberfest lasts for two weeks, from late September into the first few days of October. Filling a huge fairground, under a dramatic statue representing Bavaria, locals set up about 16 huge tents that can each seat several thousand beer drinkers.
