Maybe you’re not in Munich for the 2013 Oktoberfest festivities but in the spirit of all things pretzel, dirndl, Oom-pah and Weiss, October’s free desktop wallpaper calendar takes you to Germany – more specifically Bavaria and the birthplace of the much anticipated annual beer fest.
Whether you have a smartphone, tablet, or computer you should be able to find a free wallpaper to fit your screen in the links below, but if the background doesn’t fit your devices dimensions then let us know in the comments below (remember to include the name of your device and optimal screen resolution if possible) and we’ll see what we can do to fix that.
October’s free wall paper calendar features Neuschwanstein Castle (about 2 hours southwest of Munich by car). The castle, located in the Bavarian Alps, is probably most famous in the Western world for inspiring Walt Disney’s Cinderella castle.
Since 1886 more than 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle and more than 1.3 million people still pass through its gates each year.
