An annual event that really needs no re-introduction, the Marco Polo Hotel’s German Bierfest is one of the most popular elements of Hong Kong’s German-style Oktoberfest. As its name suggests there is no shortage of beer at this particular event, although there’s a host of other German culinary delights – including pretzels and pork knuckles.
Leading the proceedings, of course, will be a German Oompa band, ably guiding revellers through the delights of chicken dancing and sundry other challenges. It’s a great spectacle and both the band and the beer are sure to get you up and moving and laughing at the absurdity of it all, while you soak in the atmosphere and sip cold beer from an authentic German stein.
While there is no official dress code, gents in lederhosen will definitely win prestige points, as will ladies sporting a dirndl. After all, if you are going to make a complete fool of yourself doing the chicken dance, then you may as well be dressed appropriately.
