Berlin is of course the capital city of Germany with its rich and stormy history.

Oktoberfest in Munich.
We like to think Germans are diligent, organized, disciplined, and stubborn. It is important to realize that they are also fun-loving people. This aspect of German culture can be seen from their Oktobrtfests. They seem to have different forms of celebration in different regions of the country. Among them, Munich's Oktoberfest is best known. I have been there. I also have been to the festivals held in other parts of Germany.

This tradition came from the life-style of their farmers. Until 1860 AD, most of Germans were farmers, as in all other civilized countries in the world. Famers work hard during the spring and summer months. They have good reasons to hold their festivities during the month of September to celebrate their good harvests.
