  1. Why do they call it Oktoberfest, when in starts in September?
  2. It all started with a wedding in 1810. Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen.
  3. The Oktoberfest originally included horse races. The horse races are no longer held.
  4. Each Maaskrug of beer weighs five pounds if the Fraeulein carries four in each hand that’s forty pounds!193041531-bier-Mo7p0qBbSef
  5. The most  foreign visitors come from Italy, not the USA.
  6. Six million visitors are expected this year.
