The interactive infographic overview titled "Das Oktoberfest Heute" [br-online.de] (designed for a separate pop-up window accessible here) was produced for the Bavarian Television website to reveal all sorts of statistical information surrounding the yearly Oktoberfest festival in Munich. For those who never heard about this drinking carnivale: the Oktoberfest is one of the most famous events in Germany and the world's largest fair, with some 6 million people attending every year.

The shown statistical information ranges from the expected weather (cold), over the historical beer consumption (~1.643.204l), the used electricity (~2.960.000kWh) or the number of mass-fightings (38), to the total number of visitors from New Zealand (4). While designed in the German language, most information is self-explanatory. Try to click several times on some of the line graphs to reveal more detailed information.

The visitors counts are per 1000 (so 0.4% from New Zealand, 60% from Munich). The graphs show beer consumed in hektoliters [sold in 1l mugs, so 2009 they made 55000000€ just from the beer. There are also rides], number of fried chickens, pork sausages and visitors. Which all dropped while the price for 1l of beer steadily rises. At currently 9€ [12$] it's remarkable how 759 people still managed to drink themselves into a coma. Also 1 in 30 visitors tries to steal a beer mug.
