A fitting celebration of beer.

Oktoberfest, Munich's famous beer festival, is the world's largest public event which each year welcomes thousands of visitors. People who love beer and who appreciate tradition and folklore flock from the four corners of the world to experience the passion and extravagance of this Bavarian event. Festival-goers will appreciate the generous measures and the exceptional quality of the beer brewed on site, the live music played by local brass bands and the traditional costumes.

Held on the Theresienwiese, a 42 hectare plot, the Oktoberfest usually lasts between 16 and 18 days. Since it was first held in 1810, the Oktoberfest has continually grown in popularity, to the point that it is considered today to be the largest public festival in the world.

The inaugural parade, which moves from Sonnenstrasse to the Theresienwiese launches the festivities, followed by the opening of the first barrel. Beer lovers can then head to the various tents run by Munich breweries (only local breweries are authorised to supply beer for the occasion). Inside each tent, the brewers will be offering the 2 or 3 beers (usually lager) which have been selected by the organiser. Food is also available on site.

The many attractions at the festival mean that children can have fun on the big wheel, the slide and the other rides such as the Teufelsrad, the Hexenschaukel or the Krinoline.

The first Sunday of October is traditionally the last day of the festivities, the final events giving a foretaste of next year's Oktoberfest.

Come along and get into the spirit of it: there is nothing quite like the Oktoberfest!
