Additional Fun Facts:
On the 12th of October, 1810 crown prince Ludwig of Bavaria and princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen were married. In celebration of this event, numerous celebrations, from large to small, were organized throughout Munich. As folk-memory has it, a simple petty officer by the name of Franz Baumgartner came up with the idea of a horse race, paired with the display of a range of foods and drink for the common folk to top off the celebration. Whether this is the factual origin of the Oktoberfest is really not of as much importance compared to the ascribed value it holds for many people nowadays. Each year the festivities attract between 5 and 6 million visitors from all around the globe, coming together for carefree celebration and indulgence in the many delights on offer.
Tying the bow of the Dirndl
Allegedly the position of the bow on a woman’s Dirndl indicates her relationship status. A bow on the left is supposed to indicate a woman unattached, while tied on the right, said woman is in a committed relationship. If she is wearing the bow in the back, she is either a widow or a waitress wearing an apron. As with most traditions, they are seldom reliable and you might have better luck by making a polite inquiry instead of a brash attempt at seduction.
