Munich Trivia

  • October: Munich's Oktoberfest began in 1810, when celebrations were held to mark the wedding of Bavaria's Prince Ludwig on 17 October. Despite its name, it was later agreed to bring the festival forward to September in an attempt to ensure better weather.

  • January: There are 1,200 fountains in Munich, the oldest of which is the “Fish Fountain” on Marienplatz. The fountain dates back to 1862 and was used by market traders to store the day's fresh fish.
