Your Oktoberfest Hotel

The Oktoberfest is a worldly renowned event which takes place every year between the end of September and the beginning of October in Munich, Germany. The event goes on for three consecutive weekends and a total of two weeks celebrations.

OKTOBERFEST 2017 :  16th SEPTEMBER 2017 – 3th OCTOBER 2017

On this occasion, the area of Theresienwiese turns into a giant amusement park, with the famous “Festhalle”, representing Munich’s historic beer houses, serving rivers of beer night and day.

As in every amusement park, there are also souvenirs tents and little kiosks selling sandwiches, beer, würstel and the famous Bretzel, a salty kind of bread typical of the Bavarian region.

On the first Saturday of the celebration the whole city of Munich is involved in the street parade, with wagons of the various beer houses carrying barrels of beer toward the area of Theresienwiese. The parade is led by the mayor and a traditional band.

According to the tradition, no beer mugs can be served inside the tents until the mayor has tapped the first inaugural barrel.

Before this solemn opening takes place, people packed inside the tents from 7 am drinking coca cola and playing cards is the only thing you will see !
After the band has marched through the tents, dances can begin and rivers of beer can start flowing. If you “dare” to ask less than one litre per person, chances are you’ll be ignored…
