What a feast for the senses as you enter one of the seven massive beer tents at the Gäubodenvolksfest. Men are dressed in tight-fitting lederhosen, women in long, frilly blouses complemented by aprons every colour of the rainbow.

Gäubodenvolksfest waiters shoulder metre-long trays laden with pork knuckles, wurst, sauerkraut and massive Masskrug tankards while a brass band thumps out traditional drinking music. Table-loads of people have risen to their feet, climbed on the benches and are stomping in time to the oompah music. I am beginning to understand why Bavarian writer Max Penzkofer called the Gaubodenvolksfest "a little glimpse of paradise".
