In the wake of the recent ban on smoking in public places in the southeastern state of Bavaria, the Munich-based extravaganza will rely on another method to purge rotten smells.

Earlier, the clouds of cigarette smoke helped in masking the stench of stale beer, sweat and bratwurst-breath.

According to Der Spiegel, the organisers have planned to pour a revolutionary solution containing special bacteria on floorboards, tables and toilets for the event, which completes 200 years, reports News.com.au.

The microbes should eat up the offending fumes leaving nothing but a subtle, soil-type smell, if all goes according to plan.

Oktoberfest festival would run from September 18 to October 4.
