Oktoberfest is Here!

Oktoberfest is Here!

What's on tap?


With the beginning of October, we're enjoying Oktoberfest in full swing!

Originating on October 12th, 1810, the festival began as a celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who later became King Louis I and consists of eating a whole lot of food (Sausages and Grilled Chickens are a staple!), dancing and of course, drinking a whole lot of beer!

The original festival takes place in Munich and typically hosts over 6 million visitors over 2 weeks. With most of us celebrating locally, we've got a list of things to do in Hong Kong to celebrate Oktoberfest!

(Keep checking back for updates!)
