Das Oktoberfest in München - das darfst Du nicht verpassen auf deiner Deutschlandreise

The Oktoberfest in Munich - you can't miss it on your trip to Germany

The Oktoberfest in Munich, often affectionately called the "Wiesn", is much more than just the largest beer festival in the world. Since its first edition in 1810, it has grown into a global phenomenon that celebrates Bavarian culture. At Souvenirs from Heidelberg, we offer a variety of souvenirs that capture the Oktoberfest experience and allow you to take a piece of this incredible tradition home with you.

A journey through the history of Oktoberfest

The Oktoberfest began as a wedding celebration for the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. The celebrations took place on the meadows outside the gates of Munich, hence the name "Theresienwiese", which is still used today. What began as a simple horse race in a celebratory setting has developed over the years into a world-famous folk festival.

A celebration of German culture and joie de vivre

Oktoberfest is a showcase of the Bavarian way of life. Here you will experience traditional music, costume parades, folk dancing, spectacular rides and of course the famous Bavarian beers, which are produced according to strict local brewing guidelines. It is a time of community and celebration that attracts people from all over the world.
