In 2019 already the eighth edition of Oktoberfest Barcelona will take place, and it will be a typically German, traditional gastronomic beer event. The party will be at one of the most well-known and characteristic places in Barcelona: Plaza España.
Bavarian and German folklore will of course be present at Montjuic, and anyone attending this cheerful, traditional German party can also enjoy some comforting German food.
Besides Paulaner (Oktoberfest Bier, SalvatorBier, Weissbier), Heineken 0.0% and Cruzcampo gluten-free, we will also highlight some German snacks.
To satisfy food lovers, there is a whole repertoire of German dishes, such as German sausages (Pikantwurst, Cervela, Frankfurt, Bratwurst), CurryWurst, German salads, the typical pork knuckle called Eisbein, grilled chicken and much more…
Oktoberfest is a very popular celebration in Barcelona, and it is organized in a pure German style. If you want to join the party, go to Plaza Universo at Fira de Montjuïc, close to Plaza España in the Catalan capital. Entry is free and the location can be easily reached by public transport, which is a good and important aspect, considering the amount of beer that will be served.
The opening ceremony will take place in the main tent on Thursday October 3 at 5 p.m., and by inserting the tap in the first beer barrel, 11 days of great Oktoberfest fun will start in Barcelona.
The large main tent with a surface of more than 6,000 m² has limited capacity, so if you are sure you want to go this year, we advise you to book a free table in advance on the website. They also have a large VIP area with exclusive service.
