Munich is famous for its beautiful parks and landscapes. One of the most famous parks is Westpark, where romantic couples walk along the path, flowers on both sides, near the lake and between nice trees. In summer films in the air near the lake are very popular among tourists and locals.
Besides, Munich is popular with the Oktoberfest, which takes place on September annually. Why in September? The history of this holiday is ancient. The story goes back to the distant past of 1810, when Bavarian King Max Joseph gave a luxurious wedding for Crown Prince Ludwig and the Princess Therese Von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. That was a really great event. Since that time this affair has become celebrated each year. In the time of the 19th century horse races were held during this event, and in our days this tradition is also kept. The story of horse races is also very interesting, because in the 18th century they disappeared. Nobody knows why it was so. Nevertheless, these attractive competitions didn't exist for rather a long time. But once Franz Baumgartner, corporal of the national garde and horse lover, offered to the King to see horse races. King Max Joseph was amazed, and the races became an adornment of following Oktoberfest.
People from all over the world come to this annual 16-days affair for the good mood and Oktoberfest beers. Every person in Germany and in the whole the world knows that Bavarian beers are the finest and tastiest in the world. That is why Oktoberfest beers are so popular. This holiday takes place in September nowadays, because the climate has changed since the 19th century and October can meet the participant of the holiday with rather a cold wind and even heavy snow. The scales of the Oktoberfest are enormous: from year to year the number of guests is growing and now the fest attracts over 7 000 people.
