Video: It's Party Time in Munich -- Oktoberfest!

09/26/2016 02:17 pm ET Updated Sep 27, 2017

I'm taking a quick break from our Best of Europe in 21 Days tour, while leaving our group in the good care of guides Ben and Trish, to join my film crew in Munich to film Oktoberfest -- the final festival for our "Europe's Top Ten Festivals" special that will air on public television in 2017. An hour before the tents open, our guide Georg Reichlmayr shows off his fancy lederhosen and introduces us to his favorite white sausages and sauerkraut.
