Celebrate the Oktoberfest in true German style at Barcelona's very own Oktoberfest. This annual celebration of Bavarian amber nectar is held in huge tents at the Fira de Barcelona, where visitors can pass the hours supping cold Paulaner beer in arm-aching litre glasses. Get there on October 3rd at 5pm and you can enjoy the inauguration ceremony when the first barrel of beer is opened to cries of "O 'zapftis!". There's plenty of traditional fare on offer, such as pretzels, roast chicken and German sausages, and Polka bands and DJ Xavi More will be playing regularly throughout the festival. A large children's area with activities is on hand to keep young ones and their parents happy. The Oktoberfest is free to enter but it's advisable to make a table reservation—you can do this for free on the website.
