To Germany, with love

OktoberfestMealBavarianPretzelYou may have heard of Oktoberfest, but what is it exactly? The world’s biggest beer festival has been celebrated in Munich, Germany since 1810, but originally began as a horse race to celebrate the wedding of Bavarian King Ludwig I and his wife Theresie. The original was a one-day celebration, but today’s Oktoberfest lasts 16 days and draws over 6.4 million visitors!

The Wiesn, as locals call it, hosts 14 massive tents packed with food and beer, in addition to traditional Munich dancers and music, roller coasters and carousels. Despite the festivals reputation for brews, only 6 breweries are allowed to pour at the Wiesn, all within the city limits of Munich and meeting strict specifications.
