Apparently there's a big Oktoberfest every year in the nearby town of Gluckstadt (with a name like that, you know it must have been Germans who settled it!). I've seen posters like this one all over town the last few weeks. I've also heard it's quite a good time. I've never been to the real Oktoberfest in Munich, but I will probably try Gluckstadt's version this weekend. At least I'm sure I'll see one real German, if not more!
