1.) The smells were very different, but also very enjoyable. In the States you imagine giant Turkey legs, corn on the cob, and popcorn. Well here the smells were more brats and awesome roasted nuts. One thing I did learn recently that all popcorn in Germany is sweet not salty.
2.) They had a huge beer tent with a live band. Not that a band isnt common it is more the beer tent. A good way for adults to have a good time while the kiddos are playing games.
