After two long years of pandemic, the world’s largest folk festival is about to take place once again – the Oktoberfest! In case you didn’t know, the company behind PLITCH is located in Munich where the Oktoberfest takes place almost every year ever since 1810. Here are some interesting facts about the festival as well as PLITCH’s awesome social media challenge and giveaway related to it!


Fun facts about the Oktoberfest you (probably) didn’t know

Since the Oktoberfest celebrates Bavarian traditions, all the different beers you’ll find there are brewed in Munich. Not only that, but it’s also extra strong – one mug is the equivalent of 8 shots of Schnapps. No wonder there’s a tent with medical services on-site.

Now you’re probably wondering about the origins of the Oktoberfest. Has it always been a beer festival? Actually no, the first one was all about marriage, namely the one between Prince Ludwig and Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. What an interesting direction it took.

Can you guess how many liters of beer people consume at the festival? In 2018, its visitors drank 7.5 million liters!

In case you don’t like beer but are still interested in experiencing the festivities, there’s also a wine tent with 15 different types of wine as well as champagne and sparkling wine.

Did you know that it’s free to enter? No wonder more than 6 million people are attending it annually. Some of them are kids actually – there’s not only beer but also a Ferris wheel as well as a roller coaster, games, and traditional Bavarian parades. It comes as no surprise that there’s a lost and found children’s office at the festival.
