Munich's Oktoberfest ended on Sunday after two weeks of revelry in which a total of 6.4 million visitors, many of them wearing Lederhosen and Dirndl dresses despite the cool autumn weather, downed 6.7 million liters of beer and devoured 114 oxen, the organizers said.

Oktoberfest is a celebration not just of beer, but of all things Bavarian, including the traditional Schuhplattler dance, which involves rigorous thigh-slapping. Some say the dance is intended to emulate the elaborate mating ritual of the Heather Cock, the largest member of the grouse family.
