As everyone knows, my wife is from Germany and she and my in-laws told me some awesome facts about the biggest folk-festival (and yes, the biggest beer-consumption, too) in the world: The Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. Guests come from all walks of life and enjoy the fun rides, food and of course, 6 Million liter of special Oktoberfest-Beer every year in the famous tents, mainly run by the biggest breweries in town. There are about 14 different tents, each hosting between 5,000 and 10,000 people.
Watch the below video from 2011 showing the great atmosphere on the last day of the Oktoberfest in the Schützen-Festzelt. You will notice, that this festival is much more than just a giant beer-party but a fantastic get-together of people of all nations and backgrounds having a real good time together.

Just like the motto of the Bavarians*: "Live and let live!" the Oktoberfest in Munich is a real good example of the hospitality and comfortable friendliness of the people there.
(*Bavarians are people living in the Free State of Bavaria, which is the most southern state of the Federal Republic of Germany. The capital city is Munich.)
