Hilton celebrates Oktoberfest with German Ambassador
To celebrate this year’s Oktoberfest - the popular German festival celebrated by millions of people around the world - Hilton Kuwait Resort hosted over 200 guests, including the German Ambassador to Kuwait Karlfried Bergner, in a traditional celebration at the hotel’s Palm Court Terrace. Adorned in festive decorations, the terrace was bustling with families and friends, as children swayed to the live music and shouts of glee could be heard as guests won dining vouchers as part of a raffle.
Attendees arrived in style, dressed in traditional German Lederhosen and Dirndl, ready to celebrate the occasion with live cooking stations serving an array of sumptuous traditional German delights, including pretzels and Bratwurst and good-cheer. With thousands of Europeans living in Kuwait, Oktoberfest is celebrated by the local expat community each year and this year Hilton Kuwait Resort welcomed guests to celebrate Oktoberfest with gusto.
Florian Gruhl, Director of Operations at Hilton Kuwait Resort said: “We love to celebrate occasions such as Oktoberfest with the local community. This year’s event built on the success of the three previous years and we look forward to hosting Karlfried Bergner and the German community at future celebrations.”
