Edinburgh’s Oktoberfest

Edinburgh’s Oktoberfest

The Oktoberfest is originally a German festival that comes from the city of Munich. It was created in 1810 to honour the wedding of King Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen Edinburgh decided then to organise a similar party, (because Scottish people also like to drink beer!). For one week in October, Princes street gardens will look like the Oktoberfest in Munich, with Schlager music, Lederhosen und Dirndl and, of course, lots of beer!

Here is a clip of Oktoberfest in Edinburgh last year:
