On the first Oktoberfest Sunday, a parade through Munich is a dazzling showcase of traditional costumes. It was first staged on the 25th wedding anniversary of King Ludwig I and Therese of Bavaria in 1835.
Berlin is about as un-Bavarian as a German city can be, but that doesn't stop Oktoberfest from rolling into town every fall. Tamsin Walker went to find out if Berliners embrace the Munich tradition.
Bavaria captivates tourists with its rustic traditions, royal palaces, and, of course, the Alps.
One person has died and a 4-year-old is in critical condition after storm "Fabienne" raged across much of Germany. Transport links remain affected, but many revelers at the Oktoberfest ignored evening warnings.
Three days before the start of the Munich Oktoberfest on Saturday (22.09. - 07.10.) Lufthansa is sending its crew on their journey in Bavarian costume. And there's draught beer on board!
