Held annually since 1810, the Bavarian celebration of Oktoberfest begins at the end of September and runs for approximately 16 days.

Although originally commemorated in just Munich, Bavaria, Germany, the giant fair is now celebrated the world over.

Let's mark the occasion by looking at some great names of German origin!
