The country I come from – Germany.
When talking to non-Germans, the first thing they ask have to to with the following topics : Oktoberfest, castles, beer, and quite often soccer.
However, not every German has been to the Oktoberfest. Also, it is the the world’s largest Volksfest of the world, many cities and communities are hosting their own (of course much smaller) Oktoberfest. Simply, because the Oktoberfest is quite overcrowded and getting entry to the party tents is not a simple undertaking.
