If you’re already getting itchy feet for this year’s Oktoberfest, then maybe Germany‘s second largest beer festival will fill the interim for you.

This event has been running since 1755 and has less of the tourist craze that surrounds Oktoberfest, so makes for a more authentic experience of Bavarian culture.
