German traditional beer festival recreated in Hanoi

Beer lovers in Hanoi will have the opportunity to experience German authentic beer and classic dishes at Oktoberfest Vietnam 2022.

The festivities begin every night from 6 pm until midnight from October 6 to 8 October at the Hanoi Daewoo Hotel's outdoor swimming pool.

Each event will feature a traditional opening ceremony featuring the tapping of the first beer keg and the wearing of traditional Bavarian attire.

This annual event recreates the atmosphere found in the massive beer halls of the original Oktoberfest, complete with an expansive buffet of German cuisine including sausages, schnitzel, crispy pork knuckles, sauerbraten, pretzels, and sauerkraut, among others. 

A host of Pan-Asian and local Vietnamese dishes and a live cooking station also comprise a featured part of the buffet menu. Guests can also enjoy free-flow Schneider Weisse and Krombacher beer directly imported from the brewery. 

According to Hanoi Daewoo Hotel General Manager Mr. Erwin R. Popov, the event this year will welcome a host of performers to keep guests entertained and the good times flowing.

“The featured entertainment will include bands playing traditional Bavarian numbers and contemporary sounds, a stunning aerial dancer, multiple DJ sets, and choreographed dance troupes,” he told The Hanoi Times.

“In addition, guests can partake in a delightful host of activities, exciting games, and many other surprises from the event’s sponsors,” he added.

Oktoberfest Vietnam will be held in Hanoi Daewoo Hotel for the first time, with the cooperation of Windsor Plaza Hotel from Ho Chi Minh City, which is said to have experience in organizing the festival for 16 years.
