In the year 1810 the Oktoberfest in Munich was created to celebrate the marriage of Kronprinz Ludwig with Therese Charlotte Louise von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The area was located outside the city of Munich and in honor of the bride it was called „Theresienwiese“ or shorter „Wies’n“. The celebration was a horse race in Olympic tradition, so everybody could take part.
One of the first winners was Xaver Krenkl, a local coachman. He was famous ,because he had illegaly overtaken the King's coach years before. Asked why he did so, he answered to the policemen: If you can, you can!
This local hero brought thousands of fans to the race track, so the Oktoberfest grew. In 1818 there were bowling alleys, swings and the first carousels. So the first beergardens were opened where the "old" beer was sold ( It was forbidden to brew during the period from March to October, so the last kegs were transported from the beer cellars to the celebration ground: darker and stronger than the "normal" beer). This tradition has survived all the decades up to now and therefore Oktoberfest-Beer is a little bit stronger and darker than the beer you get served all year long in whole bavaria.
