What is Oktoberfest?
Oktoberfest began in in 1810 to celebrate a royal marriage, the celebrations were deemed so great it was repeated every year! It is the world’s largest beer and folk festival and traditionally takes place in Munich, Bavaria in south Germany. It has expanded throughout Europe, in recent years and is now celebrated in many countries.
The famous festival is not all about beer it also has traditional German food such as Brez’n (pretzels), Bratwurst (sausage) and many more fantastic German cuisine. There is the main Beerhall Tent with music (with an Oompa band), games, entertainment, and singing. Why not embrace the whole event and wear traditional Bavarian clothes, Lederhosen? Or, go one step further and learn a few words in German? Have fun and enjoy!
