Oktoberfest in Munich

OKTOBERFEST1 copy

Since 1810, Munich, Bavaria, Germany has played host to Oktoberfest – the world’s largest “Volksfest,” or traveling funfair and beer festival. Millions of people from around the world travel to the Bavarian capital for the over two-week-long celebration to enjoy millions of liters of special Oktoberfest Beer, food, and festivities; the special beer is brewed within Munich city limits and conforms to the strict “Reinheitsgebot,” sometimes referred to as the “German Purity Law.”

The traditions and celebrations of Oktoberfest are now enjoyed the world over; inspiring unique beers, events, and cuisine far from Germany and the festival’s roots. Just in time for this year’s Oktoberfest, which runs from September 16 – October 3, let’s explore five homes in Bavaria.
