Oktoberfest 1810-2010 – An Exhibition of 200 years of "Wiesn"

It was 200 years ago that the first Oktoberfest took place in Munich. To mark this anniversary, an exhibition in Munich City Museum “Oktoberfest 1810 – 2010” takes visitors on a journey through the history of the Bavarian National Festival.

Originally planned as part of the wedding celebration for Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese, Oktoberfest has developed into the most famous beer festival in the world.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to follow the development of Oktoberfest from the original medieval wedding party to the world’s most notable beer festival through the historical images, photographs, films and accessories.

The 800 exhibits on display ( including old beer barrels, harnesses of brewery horses, beer mugs or carousel cars) are linked to the festival, at one time or another, from the origin to today’s festival. The highlight of the exhibition is the original wedding dress of Princess Therese.

From the Medieval to the Modern

In contrast to the medieval wedding dress, visitors to Munich can shop for modern and fashionable designer outfits at Ingolstadt Village. This famous designer outlet is only 50 minutes away from Munich. It offers fashion and accessories such as Dress of Anger Maier, colorful accessories by Desigual, bags of Escada and playful lingerie from Triumph as well as smart business clothes, breezy summer dresses or the timeless basics. Ingolstadt Village’s more than 110 boutiques offer designer collections at prices reduced by up to 60% from their original prices.
