The Oktoberfest story
Oktoberfest began life in Munich in October 1810 when the townsfolk wanted a unforgettable way to celebrate the wedding of Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Eventually, the people of Munich decided to honour the couple by inviting fun lovers from far and wide to eat, drink and make merry at a grand royal racing event! The resultant get together proved to be such a big hit that Munich has now been hosting ever-more elaborate Oktoberfest parties for over 200 years!
