Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

If there is one fest­iv­al in Ger­many that ab­so­lutely must not be missed, it is Ok­to­ber­fest in Mu­nich, be­cause no oth­er event rep­res­ents Ger­man party tra­di­tion and beer drink­ing cul­ture so com­pletely as this fam­ous folk fest­iv­al on Mu­nich’s Ther­esi­en­wiese (Theresa Mead­ow). This year, Ok­to­ber­fest will be cel­eb­rated for the 203rd time – which is also an amaz­ing re­cord!

Oktoberfest 2013 In Oc­to­ber 1810, the even­tu­al King Louis I mar­ried Prin­cess Theresa of Sax­ony. There was a weeklong fest­iv­al to cel­eb­rate the new­ly­wed couple and the fest­iv­al grounds were named after the prin­cess. The place is still called Ther­esi­en­wiese to this day, which is why cit­izens of Mu­nich lov­ingly refer to Oc­to­ber­fest as Wiesn.

Today, Ok­to­ber­fest is one of the largest and most be­loved folk fest­ivals in the world. Over six mil­lion people vis­it Wiesn every year. Some have even taken the tra­di­tion home with them: there are ap­prox­im­ately 3000 oth­er Ok­to­ber­fests world­wide pat­terned after the ori­gin­al fest­iv­al in Mu­nich.

Those who would like to com­bine their Ger­man course with a vis­it to Ok­to­ber­fest should de­cide quickly: courses and ac­com­mod­a­tions are of­ten sold out far in ad­vance dur­ing this time of year. Be­gin­ners with pri­or know­ledge can start every Monday. Ab­so­lute be­gin­ners can find a course sched­ule here.

Students’ Corner:
Why Munich

Vit­tor­ia from Switzer­land: “I am learn­ing Ger­man, be­cause I would like to study at the uni­versity in Zurich. I think did deutsch-in­sti­tut is a very good school in which to im­prove your Ger­man. The teach­ers al­ways help me, and be­sides, you can meet a lot of nice people from all over the world here. I am in Ger­many for the first time and I can say without re­ser­va­tion that it is a very won­der­ful ex­per­i­ence. I have spoken a lot and con­sequently, have im­proved my Ger­man im­mensely.” Read more
