To-day attended at the press announcement by the participant organizers of the soon coming up Oktoberfest in Budapest. The annually organized  Octoberfest is a festival that grabs attention all around the world in celebrating the world’s greatest beer.

This year need not have to travel to Munich a week before to be taking part at the happening at the awesome Octoberfest party because it is coming to Budapest!

Before heading to the forthcoming Octoberfest in Budapest,  here is a little background history  of  where and why this traditional began … “Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The fields were named Theresienwiese (“Theresa’s meadow”) in honor of the Crown Princess, and have kept that name ever since, although the locals have since abbreviated the name simply as the “WIESN” Horse races in the presence of the Royal Family marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in the subsequent year gave rise to the tradition of the Oktoberfest.”

In our days, the last day of the festival is in Munich the first Sunday in October. So lucky us Hungarians  in having the giant Octoberfest tent to be brought over to Budapest  in just a week later have our  ball  around and under the tent. The Original Paulaner Oktoberfest big tent will be arriving direct from Munich and set up at the Ice Rink.  The venue will be outstanding  in the surrounding sight and feel the jolly good just like being in Munich.  Everyone who comes along to the fest will surely feel from head-to-toe the atmosphere by tasting the boundless Bavarian beer. Right here in Budapest, the impression listening, tapping to the  real Bavarian music will be an impression as if being in Munich.

A crew arriving of six breweries from Munich that are allowed to serve beer typical Bavarian speciality beer on the Oktoberfest. Paulaner brewery will offer its finest and traditional Oktoberfest beers. The festival brings about 100 domestic and international beer types to beer-lovers. During the festival, well-known breweries along with less-known micro-breweries will showcase their products.

Also can count on throughout the three days not to miss several live performances, whereas the temperature reaching heights on stage by entertainers from the Hungarian music industry. Many attractions will be brought to the fest, as:  special Hamburgers  along the Gastro Festival , delicacies there and forth will fill the  and in any case, even if not hungry it will come to the visitors appetites to go for it. Pálinka and beer in a new formation will be present  for the first time here with the Lyan’s pálinka and beer jellies. Would anybody like to give it a try to “Have bite of beer or chew a little pálinka?”  Ain’t kidding, whether  heard  or  tasted  the beer and pálinka served in jelly may be surprising to give it a try at the Octoberfest, yet would be a pity to miss it.  As the owner said,  have to watch out in having 4 pieces of the square-shaped jellies cause they have enough alcohol to say it’s not your day for driving. Of course this is not a question here at the fest where folks can forget their vehicles, bikes at home.

Furthermore attractions: Dreamcar Show, Adventure Park and an awesome lively dance German street party throughout the fests-of-the-fests where else than here in Budapest!  Daily and 3 days tickets can be purchased on the spot.
