This German festival is the biggest and the best beer fest in the world, is one heady orgy for lovers of the golden brew – 5 million litres of beer will have been sipped or swigged, guzzled and quaffed by closing day!The Munich Oktoberfest began in 1810, as a wedding party thrown by King Joseph Maximilian of Bavaria to celebrate his marriage to Princess Theresa of Saxony. The beer loving Bavarians enjoyed their party so much that they celebrated it the next year and the next and the next .......... for the next 179 years! Some party! Down the years, Oktoberfest has evolved into a glittering pageant of brass bands, brewery wagons, colourful costumes, pop concerts, food sellers, funfair and carnivals.
