The Oktoberfest began as a celebration of the marriage between Crown price Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxon on October 12th, 1810 and is today one of the largest festivals in the world. Locally, it is often called "the Wiesn" after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds, Theresa's meadows.
Each year between 6 and 7 million people visit Oktoberfest with its over 800 market stalls filled with food, games, souvenirs and the large beer tents. They consume 7 million liters of beer at Oktoberfest every year. Bands dressed in traditional Bavarian costumes will entertain you in the beer tents. Be sure to try on of the 550,000 roasted chickens that are eaten during the event.
Ladies wear traditional Bavarian dirndl (white blouse, knee-length or longer dress, apron). Gents wear traditional lederhosen, white or plaid shirt and knee socks. However, it's not mandatory that you dress up in traditional costumes.
The secret dress code for dirndl:
Bow on the left side: single
Bow on the right side: taken
Bow in the middle (front): virgin (according to tradition)
Bow in the middle (back): widow or waitress
There are also some rides which cost a few Euro and may challenge your stomach after a mug of beer.
