History
               The festival, an
              important part of
           Bavarian culture, was
          started as a horse race
           to celebrate the royal
               wedding of King
            Ludwig I's in 1800’s.
            Everyone apparently
          enjoyed the drinking a
             lot than the horse
            race. Later, the royal
          couple and horse race
              became a part of
            history and the beer
              drinking took the
                  front seat.

Outfits
          The traditional clothing is
          also a real eye-catcher of the
          festival. Practically anything
          goes, but guys wear leather
          pants, leather shorts with
          suspenders, women wear
          "Dirndl", a dress with floral
          patterns and a deep
          cleavage. The outfits cost
          around €100 to €120. You
          can even dress up like a
          traditional German and
          enjoy the allure of the
                      festival.
