One of Germany's most sought-after cultural experiences is Oktoberfest, the yearly Bavarian "Volksfestival" on the Theresienwiese in Munich. Lads and lasses of all ages and origins come decked out in lederhosen and dirndls to take part in the beer-soaked festivities, where Germans and travelers share long communal tables and spirited exchanges over giant mugs of sloshing, limited-edition pale lager. There are stands and beer-tents galore, giant cookie hearts to yoke to your lover's neck, and a legendarily well-managed lost and found.
