Prost!

Where Berlin - - Nightlife -

Raise your glass – Ok­to­ber­fest is upon us, and Ger­mans are ready to toast with a hearty Prost! Although the orig­i­nal Mu­nich Ok­to­ber­fest is the coun­try’s big­gest and most im­pres­sive, bar none, Berlin’s ver­sion, now in its 64th year, is sure to quench your thirst if you can’t make it down south for the fes­tiv­i­ties. The Zen­traler Fest­platz (Kurt-Schu­macher-Damm 207, www.berlinerok­to­ber­fest.de) near Tegel Air­port will cel­e­brate un­til 5 Oc­to­ber with tra­di­tional Bavar­ian food and brews, while Alexan­der­platz will be the city cen­ter’s go-to for Dirndls, sausage, and live mu­sic un­til Oc­to­ber 12. The Span­dauer Ok­to­ber­fest (Kloster­str. 3), although fur­ther afield, also prom­ises a lively at­mos­phere to en­joy a liter of Löwen­bräu on 8, 19, 25, and 26 Oc­to­ber.
