Best Places in Hong Kong to Celebrate Oktoberfest 2022


Where to Celebrate Oktoberfest 2022 in Hong Kong

Returning as one of the best excuses to grab an ice-cold pint, Oktoberfest makes an appearance in the city once again.

Having its origins in Bavarian history, the festival originates from Germany in the early 19th century and was initially intended as a citywide celebration of the marriage between Prince Ludwig of present-day Munich, later King Ludwig I, to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. The grand reception featured horseracing, feasts of Germanic delicacies, jolly traditional music, vibrant outfits, and lots and lots of beer-chugging!

Today, the occasion has grown to become the largest beer festival in the world, leading pubs and restaurants all over Hong Kong to transform into vivacious biergartens. Hit up these spots for some uproarious Bavarian-style fun and some delectable varieties of fantastic beers that toast to Germanic culture.
