Oktoberfest: Celebrating the 180th beer festival

This year's Oktoberfest beer festival, in its 180th year, is as exciting as ever! Munich plays host to more than 6 million visitors, who willl between them, consume over 6 million litres of beer, 500,000 roasted chickens, 240,000 sausages and so many pretzels that we really can't count them! Running until 6th October, what are you waiting for!

We definitely recommend loading up on the delicious food as well as sampling some of the world’s best beer. It is exclusively supplied by six Bavarian brewers, who have tents (the largest holding 10,000 people) in which you can sit and enjoy a litre for roughly €9.50. The city is also surrounded with a great amount of food stands and amusements fairs for all of the family to enjoy.

The festival originally began as a wedding celebration of the Bavarian Prince Ludwig in 1810, where 40,000 members of the public joined in a street party, and is a tradition that has continued ever since.
