MUSCAT: It’s time to bring out the steins, dig into some juicy wurst and do your best impression of a merry Bavarian, because the Radisson Blu, Hotel Muscat has announced an amazing Oktoberfest celebration in town.

On October 30 and 31, the hotel lawns adjacent to The Lazy Lizard will host hordes of jolly Germanophiles as they get together and say ‘Prost’ (cheers) to great food, drinks, music, dance, and fun-filled games, all in quintessential German style. At a special price of RO28 per person (food only), the Radisson Blu Oktoberfest bash promises to be a Volksfest (festival) to truly remember.

The Oktoberfest celebration at the Radisson Blu will be held on October 30 and 31, from 7pm to 12.30am, on The Lazy Lizard’s lawns. A special guest will flag the celebrations off on the evening of October 30, following which the festivities will get underway. To provide guests with a complete and authentic German experience, the hotel has arranged a buffet with a variety of traditional food and beverages that will give guests a taste of the original Munich Oktoberfest, right here in Muscat.

Various live stations have been set up, and also a bread station offering different kinds of German bread including ‘breadzels’ (bread shaped like pretzels). Marius Wolmarans, general manager at the hotel said,” There is no doubt that the Oktoberfest is an international phenomenon.

However, given that not everyone can go to Germany for the original thing, the Radisson Blu Hotel Muscat offers the next best option. Like every year, we have worked hard to ensure that only the best Bavarian food and beverages will be served to our guests at this year’s celebration.” Guests attending the Oktoberfest at the Radisson Blu Hotel Muscat must be aged 18 or above.
