why is the oktoberfest in germany celebrated?
Oktoberfest is the beer drinking festival held in Munich, Germany. Celebrated in October, after the harvest is already gathered, Oktoberfest gives people a lot of fun and beer!
The first "Oktoberfest" took place on October 12, 1810: For the commemoration of their marriage, Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds) organized a great horse race (the marriage took place on October 12, the horse race on October 17, therefore there are different dates named as being the first Oktoberfest).

Oktoberfest is a sixteen-day festival held each year in Munich, Germany during late September (and running to early October). It is one of the most famous events in Germany and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year, and is an enjoyable event with an important part of Bavarian culture. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the Munich event.

What are some good hostels to stay at for oktoberfest 2010?
I am going to oktoberfest in Munich at the end of the summer and am looking for a hostel/hotel to stay at for a reasonable price near the center of the action. I am staying for 3 nights and would prefer to spend around 100 per night for the hostel. It seems that most of them are already booked though. Anybody know of any reasonable hostels that might still be available??
