Oktoberfest Vietnam 2013 | Windsor Plaza Hotel | Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam

Oktoberfest Vietnam 2013 is coming once again to Ho Chi Minh City in 2013! The German Business Association in Vietnam and the Windsor Plaza Hotel will once again host Oktoberfest Vietnam this year from 11th and 12th October and going full-blast on 15th to 19th October from 18:00 to 24:00 at the 7th floor ballroom of the Windsor Plaza Hotel.

Taking its roots from the original Oktoberfest held in the Bavarian city of Munich, Germany, Oktoberfest Vietnam is now celebrating its 21st anniversary of introducing German culture to Vietnam. This annual event recreates the authentic atmosphere found in the massive beer halls of the original Oktoberfest, complete with savory German cuisine, premium imported German beer, and traditional Bavarian music.

New to Oktoberfest Vietnam, we are proud to welcome the German band Gaudiblosn of Munich. Gaudiblosn is a Bavarian Oktoberfest band which has played concerts worldwide. From beer tents to banquet halls, Gaudiblosn is famous for their beer-toasting medleys as well as playing classic Alpenpop, Austropop, samba, and rock hits.

Everyone from the German, Vietnamese and international communities are invited to witness and enjoy the festivities—from the rituals of opening a barrel of beer to wearing traditional costumes, dancing to foot-stomping music, all-you-can-eat authentic German cuisine such as sausages, sauerkraut, sauerbraten and pretzels, overflowing beer, exciting traditional German games, and much more. Each night guests will also have the chance to win exciting prizes from the nightly lucky draws

Guests will also be presented with a special Oktoberfest Vietnam beer stein. Fill your stein with freeflow German imported Krombacher Dark, Krombacher draught, and Schneider Weisse blonde beers. Each brew has been carefully crafted to strictly follow the German Beer Purity Law, Reinheitsgebot, using only water, barley, and hop ingredients. Guests can also experience these exclusively imported brews at Gartenstadt German Restaurant and the Windsor Plaza Hotel throughout the year.

Oktoberfest is one of the most famous and biggest festivals in the world, tracing its roots from 19th century Bavarian, Germany. In Vietnam, the Windsor Plaza Hotel, together with the German Business Association, have been hosting the event since 2005. Oktoberfest Vietnam was recognized by Reuters as one of the Top 10 Oktoberfest celebrations outside Germany, and was also featured in the Chicago Tribune and Wikipedia.
