Oktoberfest kicks off at the Princesa Sofia Biergarten
Kicking off tonight, September 13th, at the Biergarten of the Gran Hotel Princesa Sofia is the annual Oktoberfest celebrations, the nearest you'll get to actually being in Munich without leaving Barcelona.
The inauguration will feature live music, typical German products and other 'quirky' features from Germany. However, don't worry if you can't make it this evening—Oktoberfest will run until October 14th, with special concerts featuring popular German music taking place every Saturday of the festival. In addition, every day, you can enjoy, along with your authentic German beer, a range of national sausages such as weisswurst, wiener, rosenheimer and bratwurst. They are served with typical bread and special sauces brought specially from Germany for the occasion.
The Biergarten is open every day from 1pm to midnight, with the Saturday concerts running from 8 to 10pm.
