Would you like to experience a real Oktoberfest in 2019? Would you like to experience it in Prague and not in Munchen? Well, you have the chance! On October 2nd and 3rd, the annual Oktoberfest will be arranged in the Andelu area of Prague.
The Oktoberfest is based on a German tradition that was started before the wedding of Crown Prince Louis of Bavaria with Teresa of Saxony. The celebration was a big part of the wedding, but after the wedding, the Oktoberfest tradition has kept going.
As you would expect at an Oktoberfest, this place will be packed with sausages and tasty beer. But, not the traditional Czech sausages, but those white sausages so famous from Germany. Besides the sausages, you will also be able to taste grilled pig, pretzels and lots of other snacks.
Have you ever dreamt of dressing yourself up in a traditional Bavarian costume? You will get the chance to do so if you visit the Oktoberfest in Prague in 2019. But, you will also get the chance to listen to traditional Oktoberfest music at the stage of the festival area.
Where is Oktoberfest arranged?
Oktoberfest is arranged in the Andelu district of Prague. It is a bit outside the city center, but it is still very easy to get there. You can easily go by trams from the city center to the area.
It is completely free to visit the Oktoberfest area in Prague and it is open on October 2nd and October 3rd from 8.00 till 20.00 every single day. I guess the fact that it will close at 20.00 every day is one of the biggest differences from the festival in München, but I guess we will have to live with that.
