Bruce and Kelly Finkelstein in Munich
After having its lowest level of visitors in 15 years in 2016 due to security fears amid terrorist threats throughout Europe, this year's Oktoberfest once again exceeded its annual average of 6 million attendees.
Check-in reporter Lukas Stege spends a day at the world's largest beer festival, trying on Lederhosen, having fun on fairground rides and quaffing the obligatory mug of beer in the biggest tent at Munich’s Oktoberfest.
Konga, Skyfall, Toboggan, and the Ferris Wheel - they all have one purpose: a "Riesen Gaudi" - gigantic fun. Along with drinking beer in the festival tent, the rides are traditional attractions at the Oktoberfest.
