Oktoberfest is known globally as a fun gathering which usually combines partying, watching musical acts, feasting on amusement rides and games of chance and skill, and of course, food tripping through merchandise vendors.
Held annually in Germany, the event is a 16 to 18-day folk festival running from mid or late September until the first weekend of October, with more than six million people from around the world attending yearly. During the event, large quantities of drinks are consumed. In 2013 alone, for example, 7.7 million liters were served.
Various cities across the world—including Qatar—also hold Oktoberfest celebrations that are modeled after the original Munich event.
Here are some of the most ideal places to be if you want to enjoy and take advantage of the Oktoberfest season in Qatar!
