Come September – October, and the lovers of fun, frolic, German food, beer and music, all get together once again to celebrate the Oktoberfest!! What has by now become a consolidated tradition in this city, after two successful years, is making its appearance in the city again: blue and white Bavarian ribbons, a big tent on the lawn, wooden benches and tables, Dirndls and Lederhosn, songs and beer barrels will all contribute to make this year’s Oktoberfest once again as German as possible.
The formula is by now known by those who have celebrated with us the past years: German chefs and a German band flown in for the occasion, dances and drinks in great merriment under a big blue and white tent!
Don’t miss this occasion to experience some of the true Bavarian culture!!

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, running from late September 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. The Oktoberfest is an important part of Bavarian culture. Other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations, modeled after the Munich event.

The Munich Oktoberfest, traditionally, takes place during the sixteen days up to and including the first Sunday in October. Visitors also eat huge amounts of traditional hearty fare such as Hendl (chicken), Schweinsbraten (roast pork), Haxn (pork knuckle), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), Würstl (sausages) along with Brezel (Pretzel), Knödeln (potato or bread dumplings), Kaasspotzn (cheese noodles), Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes), Sauerkraut or Blaukraut (red cabbage) along with such Bavarian delicacies as Obatzda (a fatty, spiced cheese-butter concoction) and Weisswurst (a white sausage).
