Today in History: The first Oktoberfest in 1810

208 years ago today, the very first Oktoberfest took place. The festivities lasted five days and were organized around the wedding of the Bavarian Crown Prince. It was the first non-religious folk festival in Germany and had all of Munich on its feet – certainly something that has not changed in the last two centuries.

Today in History: Mark Spitz wins 7th Gold in 1972

46 years ago today, U.S. swimmer legend Mark Spitz won his 7th gold medal at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany. He earned the gold when Spitz and his team set a new world record in the 400-meter medley relay. Spitz also set new world records in the six other events in which he won the gold. At the time, no other athlete had won so many gold medals at a single Olympiad, a record that would stand until Michael Phelps took home 8 gold medals at the 2012 Beijing Games.

Today in History: Lufthansa was (re)formed in 1954 

Today in History: Lufthansa was (re)formed in 1954 

Lufthansa originally formed back in 1926 as Deutsche Luft Hansa A.G. (the name Deutsche Lufthansa was used as of 1933). But with the defeat of Germany in World War II, the country lost sovereignty over its airspace and Lufthansa had to cease all operations. A new national airline was founded under the name of Luftag in 1953. Luftag acquired the name and logo of Deutsche Lufthansa on August 6, 1954 and was granted approval to launch domestic flights in April of 1955. International operations began in May of 1955 and thus the tradition of the German flag carrier continued.
