Sadly, Oktoberfest isn’t going ahead in Munich this year. Believe us, we’re as tearful as you are! Thankfully, we live in the digital age, so if we can’t visit the festival we’ve all been waiting for, we can recreate it instead. What a plan!
We’ve thought of some great ways to share the love and continue the festivities. Check out our helpful tips on how to reinvent this iconic celebration from the comfort of your living room.
Make sure your laptops, tablets or phones are fully charged because trust us, you do not want to miss out. PROST!
Let the Games Begin…
Of course, this Volksfest famously celebrates brilliant Bavarian beers and tasty food, but it’s loved for the thriving community feel that it creates. This brew-tastic gathering just wouldn’t be the same without experiencing it with your chums. So, to host your own event, ensure you set a date, choose a cracking video app and get the drinks in for the occasion.
We’d recommend planning a virtual “pub crawl”, where you and your mates can hop between each Munich hotspot together. Organise a handful of authentic games, too, such as a yodelling competition or a stein race (carrying as many bottles as possible, rather than glasses)!
If you’re hosting this bodacious bonanza, you need to free up your schedule to craft an event your pals will never forget!
Send your meeting link or video call invite to your ale-aficionados nice and early, either on WhatsApp or by text, so that they can easily jump in when the day arrives.
Set the Scene
Zoom and countless other video apps are designed with your virtual dreams in mind, providing jazzy backgrounds to add to your call.
Whether you’re after an image of crazy crowds behind you or are organising a “pub crawl”, you’ll feel as though you’re at your desired locations by choosing wild backdrops to fit in with your festivities – perfect!
Beers at the Ready
No Oktoberfest bash is complete without fabulous friends to share it with, as well as a mighty selection of hops to slurp down.
We don’t mean to brag, but Beerhunter has an awesome collection of themed beverage bundles for you to enjoy, helping you #steinathome with traditional pints (and glasses, too). Order the goods in advance and virtually “cheers” to your own version of this fine festival!
What are you waiting for? Change into your lederhosen and let the fun commence!
You may be socialising at home, but you still must drink and think responsibly. Remember to have a glass of water to stay hydrated in between beers and never, under any circumstances, drink and drive.
