German culture reaches far beyond Europe. And the rest of the world is lucky for it. You might even find Germany in places you’d least expect. How much do you know about the origins of those Adidas shoes you just ran 26.2 miles in? German culture is teeming with traditions—from art and food, to music and beer. These traditions can be found at German festivals all over the world. One of those major festivals is the stein-hoisting, beer-drinking, Bavarian-food-enjoying Oktoberfest. Versions of this festival can be found everywhere from München, Germany (the Münchner Oktoberfest in Munich is the mother of them all), to Las Vegas.
