Commencing in the second half of September and for 16 days on, Munich’s Theresienwiese transforms into something that might seem like the world’s largest fun fair! The Oktoberfest, or "Wiesn" as the locals call it, is a beer festival above all, but also with lots of sale stands and other events and exciting happenings. In 2010, the Oktoberfest celebrated its 200th anniversary. Starts second last Saturday of September and ends on the first Sunday of October. Don’t miss the Bavaria and the Hall of Fame on the hill above the Theresienwiese. It was built between 1843 and 1853 and was commissioned by Ludwig I of Bavaria to honour prominent Bavarians to whom the country, science and the arts are indebted.
