Oktoberfest – World’s unique festival of thrilling excitement and unlimited fun

The countdown to the 187th Oktoberfest 2023 has begun. Almost after a 2-year break, the world's most anticipated event will occur again on a grand scale. The beautiful city of Munich is all geared up to attract millions of food & fun lovers, especially beer sommeliers and mavens from various corners of the world.

The Fest - How it all began?

Brief Background

The 16-day Oktoberfest will take place from 17th September 2023 to 3rd October 2023 at the Theresienwiese, an open space in the Munich borough. It has been estimated that nearly 6 million tourists visit Munich every year to participate in this insanely grand festival.

So, how did Oktoberfest begin? The inhabitants of Munich were invited to celebrate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, held on October 12, 1810.

The festivities were held on the fields in front of the city gates, later named Theresienwiese or Theresa's Meadow, to honor the Princess since Oktoberfest is being organized as a tribute and remembrance to the royal couple.

Oktoberfest is not called Septemberfest! Why?

Top reasons to visit Oktoberfest

Let's go back to the roots. The fest first began in 1810 in October and lasted for a week. It was a grand success and became so famous that Oktoberfest eventually moved into September due to the pleasant climate.
