Prague will celebrate Oktoberfest twice this autumn, with four-day events planned in both Vysočany and Holešovice next month.
Vysočan Oktoberfest will go first from the 14th to the 17th of September at Permanent Pragovka beer garden in Prague 9, followed by the Holešovice festival from September 21st to 24th at Food Truck Point in Prague 7.
The third edition of the annual festival will feature six traditional Bavarian beers on tap such as Hofbräu Dunkel, Paulaner, and Löwenbrau as well as several Festbiers including from Germany’s oldest brewery: Weihenstephaner.
Typical bavarian food will also be served, with pretzels, radishes, Bavarian sausages, and burgers on offer. Visitors are encouraged – but not required – to come in traditional Bavarian fancy dress.
You will also be able to taste Festbiers, for example from the oldest German brewery Weihenstephaner.
“There will be typical Bavarian delicacies such as pretzels, radishes, and spread Obatzda or Bavarian sausages. In addition, of course, our traditional large and hearty Burgers. So smeckt Bayern!,” says one of the organizers.
“Stylishly dressed welcome. Look in your wardrobes and wear something Bavarian. We open every day at three, we close at 10 pm,” he adds.
Permanent Pragovka in Vysočany is the largest craft beer garden in central Europe and is situated in a former factory, which organisers say “may remind one of a space in Berlin or Budapest.” The location is 200 metres from Kolbenova metro station on line B (yellow).
Food Truck Point in the Holešovice Prague Market (Pražská tržnice) is easily accessible with the Vltavská metro line C (red) stop.
Entry is free and the events will be open each day between 3 and 10 pm.
