THERE WILL BE BEER,
there will be food, there will be singing and there will be dancing…. Never heard of Wiesn, Prosit, Lederhose, Gaudi or Gsuffa? – Then it is time for you to celebrate with The New Zealand German Business Association at the BMW Oktoberfest 2016 in Auckland on 16 September.

So, if you can’t be in Munich be in Auckland for what NZGBA promises will be an authentic evening with delicious and hearty Bavarian cuisine and tasty German beer.
