The biggest festival or fair in this planet is about to begin! Who wants to party with me! haha..just kidding! The world is currently looking at the so-called Wiesn, this is how the locals or the Bavarians call Oktoberfest. This festival is visited by over six million visitors from near and wide every year. This is such a fabulous fair and for sure, you will have fun during your visit!
I believed others have already planned and booked their trip to Munich’s Oktoberfest a year ago. I have seen a German TV reportage about this, interviewing people from all over the world who are going to the festival. They usually plan their travels to Germany just to witness the famous and largest fair in this world.
I believed I don’t need to expand more about this festival. Most of you have the idea about what it is. I would love to share some photographs I took during my visits to the Oktoberfest. I have been there five times and probably will come back again this year.
Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival and this year it will take place from September 21 to October 6. Don’t miss it if you are visiting Munich, Bavaria during these dates.
HISTORY of OKTOBERFEST
“Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 17, 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The fields were named Theresienwiese (“Theresa’s meadow”) in honor of the Crown Princess, and have kept that name ever since, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply to the “Wies’n”.”
