At the festival, guests can savour an all-you-can-eat feast of authentic German cuisine including sausages, sauerkraut, sauerbraten and pork knuckle. Throughout the evening, the overflowing buffet will also present a selection of traditional side dishes from roast potatoes to salted pretzels. A host of Pan-Asian and local Vietnamese dishes and a live cooking station also comprise a featured part of the buffet menu. Guests can also enjoy free-flow Schneider Weisse and Krombacher beer directly imported from the brewery.

Bands playing both traditional Bavarian and contemporary sounds, a stunning aerial dancer, multiple DJ sets and choreographed dance troupes will keep guests entertained and the good times flowing. In addition, visitors can join in exciting games and lucky draws with many interesting prizes.
