Fun fact: Oktoberfest wasn't originally a beer fest, but a wedding party in honour of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig in 1810.
If you don't know about Germany's love for beer, you surely haven't heard of Oktoberfest, the world's largest Volksfest i.e., beer festival and travelling funfair.
It is held every year in Munich, Germany, although it has been cancelled about 26 times, including in 2020 and 2021. As soon as the Mayor of Munich, honouring the Bavarian tradition, says “O’ zapft is” and opens the first key, the massive party begins!
There is a non-stop flow of beer and occasional wine, for 13-18 days. With 14 beer tents and other drinks, made extra strong for the festival, you are sure to never run out of beer!
With about 6 million people visiting the festival, it is bound to get super crazy. However, it's great for employment as well, so it’s a win-win on both sides.
So, if beer is love for you, and you never shy away from the fun, try taking a short Oktoberfest break next September when it takes place. Until then, play this quiz!
