The world's largest beer festival starts again on the 19th of September! Attracting up to 7 million visitors each year, the festival dates back to 1820 when it was held to celebrate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. Munich's inhabitants were invited to make merry in a field on the outskirts of the city, in a field named Theresienwiese, after the newly wed princess. Nearly 200 years later, people still flock to the Bavarian capital to visit the fun fair and drink over 6 million litres of beer during the 16 day celebrations. Oktoberfest beer tends to be stronger and sweeter than typical German beer, so we recommend sampling some hearty German street food to soak it up and avoid being affectionately labelled a 'bierleiche' (a beer corpse).
If you find yourself craving some calm, you should definitely take some time to explore the Bavarian capital! You can take a stroll through the charming old town and visit some architectural highlights, such as the Frauenkirche, Marienplatz and the New Town Hall. An insider's top: head up to the top of the St. Peter's Church, where you will get the best view of the entire old town! Munich has many popular tourist destinations, such as the German Museum, the Nymphenburg Palace, and the English Garden. If you haven't had enough beer, you can also head to the Staatliches Hofbräuhau, the infamous royal brewery!
