Capturing the essence of living, one house at a time
What to wear at Oktoberfest?
Brewtiful weather at the annual München Oktoberfest
Forgive me München for misunderstanding you and your Bavarian citizens. I thought Oktoberfest was Oktobierfest, all about beer, but Oktoberfest is about the passion of the Bavarian people to celebrate. It is about tradition – food, beer, dress, music, family and friends. It is a series of parades, brass bands, the ‘tapping’ of the first festival keg of beer and a carnival over a couple of weeks ending in the first week of October.
The Oktoberfest evolved from the original festivities to celebrate the marriage of Kronprinz Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on 12 October 1810.
Incidentally, if you wish to partake in the beer you need to have a reservation for entry into a beer tent. The hopportunity ifor a reservation is taken up swiftly well before October.
