03 Sep Oktoberfest Hits Glasgow
Oktoberfest Hits Glasgow
Food? Check. Beer? Check. People dressed in silly outfits enjoying plenty of merriment? Check and check! Those are the three major ingredients that make up Glasgow’s very own Bavarian-style Oktoberfest and boy, are we excited!
We love all things travel related and it’s tickling for us to see a slice of Germany brought to our fair city. This year, the event is set to be bigger and better, welcoming revelers from all over Scotland beyond to eat, drink and generally have a ball.
Queen’s Park is hosting the six-day affair, so what can you expect to see? Well, of course, there’ll be beer! A special Bavarian brew is on offer throughout the festival which is sure to go down just a little too well! Plus, there will be classic German food like Schnitzel, Pretzels and Bratwurst to keep your stomach lined. It’s not all about eating and drinking (but it’s a great place to start!) as there’s all-day music on offer too. Take along friends, colleagues or family to party all day and into the night and, to make the occasion extra-special, dress up in traditional style. Drindl and Lederhosen are available from the organisers’ online shop and will definitely prove a finishing touch to the day!
After all that excitement, you’ll need somewhere to call home. The city’s bound to be packed out over the event period so make sure you book your room at the Kelvingrove Hotel early. We’re in the city’s West End where there’s plenty to see and do when you’re not out enjoying Germany via Glasgow. Our three-star residence gives you that home-from-home feeling with excellent customer service as standard. With a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence to our name, we pride ourselves on giving guests an award-winning experience and our Finnieston location – one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the UK – tops off the experience, with food and drink options everywhere you turn, should have had your fill of Bratwurst, of course!
