At Gardaland Oktoberfest 2021 you can enjoy the best food and wine of this special event such as traditional knodels, soft bretzel, delicious pork shanks, Nuremberg sausage and the classic pairing of hot dogs and sauerkraut or French fries! Everything will be washed down with excellent beer!

This year treat yourself to a real journey into the world of beer along 5 stages: the Medieval Square with the Merlin Stube, where you can enjoy Heineken beer accompanied by shank, Tyrolean potatoes, dumplings but also wurstel, pork cutlet, pretzel and, to finish on a sweet note, the birramisu; the Mammut Area will be dedicated to Schmucker Weizen with white sausage and pretzel; the Ramses Area will feature Schmucker Pils with pretzels, maxi chips and onion rings; the Buffalo Area, a new location, with cold-filtered Moretti beer to be accompanied by the sandwich with Kassler; finally, at the Hacienda Miguel, you can taste Messina Cristalli di Sale beer together with pretzels. There will also be huge 950-litre beer tanks specially created for Gardaland Oktoberfest.

Kicking off this extraordinary party will be Prezzemolo, Gardaland's mascot, who, dressed in a traditional Bavarian costume, will welcome his guests every day to lead them into the beating heart of the party, including dancing, yodel and lots of fun! With the accordions electrifying the party, there will also be jolly characters steering colorful horse-drawn carts from where frothing mugs of beer will be handed out, just like in the most deeply rooted regional traditions.

What’s more, beautiful parades with dancers, incredible shows and the funny songs of the Kapuziner Bier band will accompany you in the various amusement areas for a truly unmissable show!
