Munich’s Oktoberfest and the Best Autumnal German Beer Festivals
The origin of Oktoberfest dates back to October 1810 when King Ludwig I married Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The residents of Munich were invited to attend festivities to celebrate the royal event. These events were hosted in local fields, which were renamed Theresienwiese after the Princess and they’ve kept that name ever since. Today most major German cities hold Volksfests (people’s festivals) and Oktoberfest is Munich’s big annual Volksfest.
