The event started as a celebration to honor the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, with festivities that went on for some days in Oct. 1810. Suggestions to start this idea were presented by Franz Baumgartner, which was a National Guard Sergeant. The celebrations were so well organized and enjoyed by all involved that they royal family decided to do it again the next year and the tradition started since.
Today the Oktoberfest is so popular that it attracts around 6.5 million visitors on average per season. The festival is around 16-day occasion that always commences after mid-September and concludes by the first Sunday in October, and sometimes it joins the German national Unification Holiday on 3 Oct. if the calendar matches. Group’s travels in this period are prompt with Coach Europe.
The 187th edition of the Munich Oktoberfest will be held between end of September and beginning of October 2021. The edition mark is not 210th but 187th is because of some Cholera epidemics and wars interrupted the tradition over this long period. Every Oktoberfest normally starts with a large parade headed by the mayor of Munich. Then at 12 noon, arrives the symbolic tapping of the first beer keg. The Mayor holds this honor of course, who has to yell "O'zapft is” which is the standard scream translation of "("It's tapped!") And only at that point of time will the beer tabs begin to flow and the festivities are officially launched, with some people calling it’s the Great Beer Festival Actually.
Oktoberfest's biggest enticement is its 15 lavish and enormous “tents" that serve beer, and one extra tent that is dedicated for serving wine. All these large tents are only set up over the two-week period for the festival. For sure, beer is most popular, and could be argued the major attraction here, but Oktoberfest still is an enormous public fair, with a carnival theme and fair delight. A big aspect of Oktoberfest is the Ferris wheel, roller coasters, and other amusement attractions that are more than 80 different options on offer in total.
