Don’t let the name fool you! Munich’s world-famous, 16-day annual beer festival, the Oktoberfest, commences on 22 September and runs until 7 October. During this time, guests at Mandarin Oriental, Munich can experience the spirit of this historic event with the hotel’s fabulous Oktoberfest package. Guests can try some of Germany’s finest beers, brewed locally, and sample traditional specialities, such as Würstl sausages, Brezn pretzels, Käsespätzle cheese noodles and Schweinebraten roast pork, with a three-course dinner in one of the festival’s most famous and popular tents, the Hippodrom.
Since opening its doors in 1902, the Hippodrom has mastered the art of combining Bavarian tradition with a contemporary crowd, among them TV and film stars, who are attracted to the tent for its wonderful food and drink and rousing atmosphere (and, whisper: there’s also a stunning champagne bar!). Guests will arrive at the venue courtesy of a 30-minute carriage tour from the hotel, hosted by a VIP guide, and will be treated to Bavarian pretzels and drinks en route. During this festival period, guests will also discover Bavarian amenities in their rooms upon arrival and indulge in beer tastings and a special Oktoberfest menu at the hotel’s informal BistroMO.
The Oktoberfest package starts from EUR 1,161 for one night. Make a direct online reservation at www.mandarinoriental.com/munich, or call +49 (89) 290 980
