Photo Gallery Two Hundred Years of Oktoberfest

Soberly speaking, Oktoberfest is the world's biggest drinking fest. But the real magic comes after you drink your first liter of beer -- the annual party is one of the last refuges of carefree excess. This year, a Munich museum dedicated to the city's history, the Stadtmuseum, is putting on an exhibition of 200 years of Oktoberfest.
