Oktoberfest is a popular annual festival in Munich, Germany that’s traditionally held over a two-week period in late September and early October. The event originated in 1810, as part of the official celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who was later known as King Louis I, to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. All Munich citizens were invited to join in the festivities, which eventually became known as Oktoberfest.
