Oktoberfest 2011

By 1800FlyEurope in Destination Highlights | on August 2nd, 2011

Contrary to popular belief, Oktoberfest is not held in October. This world famous festival actually begins in September and goes a few days into October, which is why now is a great time to book your cheap flight to Munich.

This year, the festivities begin on Saturday, September 17th and the fun doesn’t stop until October 3rd. What can you expect this year at the world’s most famous festival? Well, of course there is the Bavarian beer, the piping hot pretzels and throngs of people in traditional attire. There will be fun for the whole family, such as music, dancing and even rides (this includes the new “Monster Swing” which goes high into the air and rotates in one direction, giving a perfect view of the happenings at Oktoberfest)!

There will be a total of 14 beer tents, each offers their own reason on why you should visit and more tempting than the one before it. Among them are:

  • Hofbr√§u Festhalle- this tent resembles the city‚Äôs famous Hofbrauhaus and serves Bavarian specialties and Hofbr√§u M√ºnchen beer
  • Sch√ºtzen-Festzelt- ¬†where Lowenbrau beer is served along with a pork dish prepared in traditional Bavarian style, marinated in malt beer sauce and paired with potato salad
  • Schottenhamel – In business since 1867, when it was just a small booth with only a 50 seat capacity, Schottenhamel now has seating for 10,000! There will be live music by the Otto Scwarzfischer Blaskapelle band and beer from Spaten-Franziskaner Br√§u.
  • Br√§urosl ‚Äì Managed by the Heide family for 7 generations, Br√§urosl is one of the most entertaining tents at Oktoberfest. There will be a yodeler as well as music by S√ºdtiroler Spitzbuam and Ludwig Thoma-Musicians. Beer served is from the Hacker-Pschorr brewery.
