Oktoberfest is fast approaching! Now is the time to start planning your 'German Day' with German food, beer, and merrymaking! Here are 10 tips for preparing your day!
Also called a Tyrolean hat, the Alpine hat is the perfect accessory for an Oktoberfest Party! These hats come in a variety of styles and are used by German, Austrian and Swiss people. This cute paper version is so simple to make!
If there is one song you are absolutely guaranteed to hear at an Oktoberfest celebration in Germany, it's 'Ein Prosit'. Music and festivities are interrupted every 20 minutes to play it and remind the crowd they are at the fest!
Use empty jars from the kitchen or use Mason jars to fill with the spices and sugar needed to make Gluhwein. Tie a little tag around the jar with the recipe for making Gluhwein. A stylish gift!
Winston Churchill summed it nicely (and wisely) when he said:
‘Always remember that I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.’
Celebrate October Fest with a typical German Lunch: Weisswurst and sauerkraut in a bun with loads of mustard.
This is a great recipe to make any time of the year but especially in October in time for Oktoberfest! Everybody can join in peeling apples, grating lemon zest and reminiscing about other sauces around a large table.
