This two-week festival is held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany during late September and early October. It is one of the most famous events in the city and the world's largest fair. Held 16 days before the first Sunday in October on an area named the Theresienwiese, often called "d' Wiesn" for short, Oktoberfest is where a special beer is brewed, which is slightly darker and stronger, in both taste and alcohol. It is served in a one-liter-tankard called Maß. You also get to consume large quantities of food such as as sausage, hendl (chicken), käsespätzle (cheese noodles), and sauerkraut, along with such Bavarian delicacies as roast ox tails.
