The Mandarin Oriental, Macau is to host a fun-filled celebration of Oktoberfest from 7 to 16 November 2008. Along with plenty of genuine Bavarian beer, German food and wine specialities, and live music by an authentic German band - the event promises to provide non-stop fun for all.

The sound of oompah and the aroma of sizzling German bratwurst heralds Oktoberfest at Mandarin Oriental, Macau. This years celebration will include a 25-metre-long Munich beer tent with room for 400 people. Erected on the hotel grounds over long wooden tables and benches to create an authentic Oktoberfest atmosphere, the site will feature Bavarian decoration as well as a beer garden. Throughout the ten-day celebration events will run from 5.00 p.m. until 12 midnight.

A Bavarian outdoor barbecue located at the resort will offer a variety of char-broiled German sausages including Thueringer roast sausage and Munich white sausage, homemade pretzels and sweet mustard, fire-roasted spicy chicken with potato salad, and cured pigs knuckle with sauerkraut. Beverage highlights include a special Paulaner Oktoberfest brew served in a one-litre mug.

Further enlivening each evening will be entertainment by a six-piece German band flown in direct from Munich. The whole tent will be encouraged to sing along while toasting and dancing.

The celebration of Oktoberfest traces back to 1810 when Crown Prince Ludwig, who later became King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12 October 1810. All citizens of Munich were invited to attend festivities held on fields before the city gates and to celebrate the royal wedding. From this has evolved a cheerful gathering of revellers who each year in Munich comprise the largest public festival in the world, attended by approximately six million visitors.

An entrance fee of MOP$50 nett applies to each guest.

The hotel is also offering an Oktoberfest package, which includes:

One night accommodation in a Deluxe Room
One round trip of economy class daily sailing TurboJET tickets between Hong Kong and Macau
Oktoberfest coupons valued at MOP$360 per person to be exchanged for food and drinks at the tent
Free use of the outdoor temperature-controlled swimming pool, outdoor Jacuzzi, gymnasium and aerobic studio
Shuttle bus transfer between Macau Ferry Terminal and the hotel

The Oktoberfest package starts at HK$1,588 and is valid from 7 through 13 November 2008. Rates are subject to 10% service charge and 5% government tourism tax.
