But did you know that our Oktoberfest actually runs from mid or late September to the first weekend in October?
And that we often call it the Wiesn, after the colloquial name for the fairgrounds, Theresa’s meadows (Theresienwiese)? The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810. During the event, millions of litres of beer as well as a wide variety of traditional foods are served.
When you visit the Oktoberfest in Munich, you can also enjoy plenty of attractions, such as amusement rides and games.
London, like other cities across the world now also hold Oktoberfest celebrations that are modelled after the original Munich event.
