Eventhough this post is tagged as Swiss History, it actually is a little bit of knw how all about the German History of Oktoberfest.
Oktoberfest is the world's largest funfair held
annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is a 16-day festival running from late
September to the first weekend in October with more than 6 million people from
around the world attending the event every year and is an
important part of Bavarian culture, having been held since 1810.
