          The Munich Oktoberfest is one of the world’s greatest parties. The history of the Oktoberfest dates back to October 12, 1810, when it was a celebration of the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. Citizens of Munich were invited to attend…and the celebration was such a success that it was decided to hold it in future years. Each year the celebration became larger and today hosts more than 6 million people who attend during the two weeks. Tradition has the “party” ending on the first Sunday in October.
