October is all about fun! Not only Munich, but Hannover has to offer a great Oktoberfest every year as well.

Third biggest Oktoberfest in the world

Autumn in Hannover will be white and blue – the colours of Bavaria. The Schützenplatz fairground will be all about the fun! The third biggest Oktoberfest in the world can now look back on almost 50 successful years. In the various festival and catering marquees, visitors can look forward not only to sociability, music and dancing, but also to some hearty treats of the culinary variety, with classics from the cuisine of both the Alpine region and Lower Saxony.

Thrilling rides

The fun element will not be neglected either of course: A whole range of thrilling rides, including the genuinely Bavarian "Hupferl", the "Boostermax" or the giant helter-skelter called the "Toboggan", will recreate the atmosphere of the Munich "Wiesn" to perfection.
