6 Best Places to Travel to in October for Oktoberfest
You might think the Oktoberfest tradition was started in Germany at the hands of a few brew-happy folks looking to sell their hops-fueled beverages. On the contrary, the facts are, the very first event was held in celebration of a wedded union and beer wasn’t the main attraction. As Crown Prince Ludwig prepared to marry Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, locals were invited to the neighboring field (still called Theresienwiese in the bride’s honor) to join the party. Royal horse races closed the event, and it was the continuation of those races that really gave birth to Oktoberfest.
