Where: Munich, Germany
When: 21 September - 6 October 2013
"O'zapft is!" the Mayor of Munich cries every year as he taps the first keg in the traditional way with a wooden hammer, and so starts the world's largest folk festival, as it has for the past 202 years. For the 16 days that follow, the Theresienwiese fairground in Munich is turned into a riot of mug-clunking, beer-swilling and sausage-gobbling action as more than six million visitors flock here. During that time a staggering seven million litres of beer (that's nearly three Olympic swimming pools filled with the brew) is gulped down and around 300,000 pork sausages guzzled. It's not for the faint-hearted.
