Oktoberfest is coming, Germany is in turmoil but also the rest of the world.
The Oktoberfest is the world’s biggest folk festival, each year reaching high numbers of visitors to reach an average of six million and about eight million beer mugs consumed.
Oktoberfest is coming: from September 22nd to October 7th
The most alcoholic event of the year will be held in Munich, Germany, from September 22nd to October 7th. Two weeks full of good beer, including the six historic Munich beers (Paulaner, Spaten, Hofbrau, Hacker-Pschorr, Augustiner and Lowenbrau), excellent food (German sausages not to be missed) and good company.
The fair was born on October 17, 1810, when after the marriage between Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria and the Princess of Saxony Therese von Sachsen Hildburghause, the celebrations were celebrated for five days with all the citizens of Munich.
The event gave way to a tradition, well established today.
