VTV.vn - Oktoberfest, the largest cultural event of German-speaking communities across Southeast Asia, is taking place in Hanoi from Oct 22 to 24.

Oktoberfest Hanoi - an attempt to replicate the authentic atmosphere of the original event in Munich, with generous venues and seating, German cuisine and famous Bavarian staples. The participants can also enjoy premium imported German beers and a great party atmosphere.

In recent years, the Oktoberfest has become a popular landmark event with both Vietnamese and expatriates, helping bridge the cultural divide and bring people together. The organisers are keen to hold even bigger and better events this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of German-Vietnamese diplomatic relations.

The first Oktoberfest festival was held in 1810 and Oktoberfest celebrations have been organised annually in Ho Chi Minh City for 23 years and in Hanoi for 6 years.
