Munich Oktoberfest ends with a beer and a bang
Authorities say some 6.3 million visitors came to this year's event which ended Sunday, and 6.5 million 1-liter (2.11-pint) mugs of beer were drunk.
Police recorded a drop in crime this year to 1,290 offenses, down from 1,525 in 2013. The incidents included at least one attempted heist of a trolley full of beer mugs and the destruction of a 'monster' in a fairground ghost train by a visitor who had taken offense at being spooked.
The lost property office declared it had received, among other items, 230 pairs of spectacles, two wedding rings, a set of dentures, a French horn, and a ball and chain.
