Oktoberfest takes root in Munich on October 1810, when a horse ride was arranged for the wedding of Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.
It was a great success and since that very moment the celebration was repeated each year with the addition of fairs, dances, music and carnivals. Oktoberfest was cancelled 24 times during its 200 years life due to wars, inflation, epidemics and more.
After the World War II, it was celebrated as Autumn Feast and was accompanied with beer. In 1960 the last horse ride took place.
Nowadays, Oktoberfest plays at Theresienwiese, a 42 hectares open space in Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt quarter, and it is the most well-known German celebration all around the world. Millions of people come to Munich to taste beers served by girls dressed up in German traditional costumes and to make the most out of the authentic and fun Oktoberfest atmosphere.
