agoda.com, Asia’s global hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed
Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced special deals for
Munich hotels just in time for Oktoberfest.
Held since 1810, Oktoberfest is the world's biggest fair, with more
than six million people attending each year. A lively celebration of
Bavarian culture, for 17 days the festival brings music, beer tents,
carnival rides and hearty traditional cuisine to the central Munich
area of Theresienwiese.
This year, Oktoberfest features 14 tents of drinking, dining and
entertainment. Each tent offers visitors a different experience – some
are small, intimate affairs with a relaxed ambience, while some are
large bustling beer halls with brass bands and a lively party
atmosphere. To promote family-friendliness and make the festival fun
for guests of all ages, all tents are smoke-free and loud party music
is limited to evenings after 6pm.
The most famous highlight of Oktoberfest is undoubtedly the beer.
All beers must be produced within Munich and all the most famous local
beers are represented, including Löwenbräu, Augustiner, and Hofbräu.
Another highlight is the food, with delicious Bavarian specialties sold
in every tent. Biergarten favorites include pretzels with obatzda, a soft cheese dish, myriad types of wurst (sausage), pork knuckle, veal, and roast chicken.
Oktoberfest begins officially on September 17 this year. The opening
ceremony begins with a parade of thousands of costumed Bavarians
through the streets of Munich to the festival site before the mayor
taps on a beer keg to launch celebrations. Over the course of the
festival, visitors will consume more than seven million liters of beer,
89,000 liters of wine and more than 70,000 pork knuckles.
Aside from beer halls andbrass bands, Munich offers countless
opportunities for visitors to enjoy Bavarian culture. Munich is
considered one of the world's most livable cities, with a mix of
medieval architecture, modern infrastructure and beautiful parks.
