Oktoberfest Hannover

Autumn in Hannover will be white and blue – the colours of Bavaria. For 17 whole days, from 28 September onwards, the Schützenplatz fairground will be given over to festivities in the Bavarian tradition, though spiced with ingredients from Lower Saxony such as regional folk dances performed in traditional costume, brass bands and a specially brewed festival beer.

The third biggest funfair of this kind in the world can now look back on a tradition going back almost 50 years. In the various festival and catering marquees, visitors can look forward not only to sociability, music and dancing, but also to some hearty treats of the culinary variety, with classics from the cuisine of both the Alpine region and Lower Saxony. As every year, there will be the traditional Harvest Festival celebrations, when the fairground will be decked out with offerings from local farms and gardens. But the fun element will not be neglected either: a whole range of thrilling rides, including the genuinely Bavarian “Hupferl”, the “Boostermax” or the giant helter-skelter called the “Toboggan”, will recreate the atmosphere of the Munich “Wiesn” to perfection.
