Posted by

For those seeking to experience the largest beer festival in the world while still staying in Seoul, Grand Hilton Seoul presents the 2018 Oktoberfest.

The hotel has been hosting Oktoberfest since 2007, attracting more than 1,000 visitors each year. This year’s event will take place on Sept. 8 at the hotel’s Convention Center.

At the Oktoberfest at Grand Hilton Seoul, an unlimited flow of draft beer from German brewery Ayinger will be provided. The renowned brewery will introduce its Ayinger Oktoberfest Marzen, a seasonal beer produced specially for Munich’s Oktoberfest, which has not been officially imported to Korea before. The beer can be enjoyed here only during the festival period.

To accompany the drinks, Grand Hilton Seoul’s chefs will prepare a buffet featuring a wide variety of traditional German dishes, such as Bavarian white sausage, Black Forest ham and schweinshaxe, or roasted ham hock.

The festival will kick off with a performance of German group Anton Band, invited from Munich. The staff, dressed in traditional German garb, will greet guests.

Various games, such as beer chugging, nail hammering and arm wrestling, will keep guests entertained. A raffle will also be held to award round-trip Lufthansa airline tickets to Germany.

Tickets for the festival are sold at 150,000 each. This year’s event is sponsored by Lufthansa, Ayinger, Agrosuper and Jagermeister.
