History of Oktoberfest

Dates back to 1810 when Crown Prince Ludwig I married Princess Therese on Oct. 12. Citizens of Munich were invited to join the festivities held in the fields outside of the city gates. The fields are called Theresianwiese (or Theresa's Fields) ever since. Today, the festivities are known by the Germans as Wiesn. Oktoberfest is the world's largest folk festival with 6 million visitors per year.
