In 2010 the world largest beer-festival had its 200 years anniversary.
A small area was built to show the visitors some historic stuff.
Beside some old carrousels and also many small historic parts, a big racecourse was built, and of course some horse races where shown.
The reason for founding the Oktoberfest has been a horse race in Oktober 1810 at exactly the same place: The Theresienwiese (as it was a meadow in former times).
Munich is the capital of the German state of Bavaria and is Germany's third largest city, located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Black and gold - the colors of the Holy Roman Empire - have been the city's official colors since the time of Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor.
