Sep 28-30, open Thu 17:00-23:00, Fri 17:00-23:30 & Sat 14:00-23:30; Femøren Amager Strand, Cph S; free adm, packages 299-499kr; oktoberfestdk.dk
Hop off the tube at Femøren and walk a short distance to find yourself amongst other Bavarian beer-enthusiasts.
Live music, lederhosen and litres of German beer will greet you at an event brimming with energy and jocosity.
Check the website for different promotions within the festival: a student day, for instance, or a chance to cut costs with a happy hour.
You can also save yourself the stress of deciding just how Bavarian you want to go on the day by pre-booking and taking advantage of one of their package deals.
From 299-339 kroner you can reserve seats together, order two portions of crisps, one litre of beer or one bottle of white or red wine, one Bavarian Schnitzel plate and one German Underberg.
If you’re feeling indulgent, alternative packages are on offer that include VIP table service, an expanded food menu and Austrian champagne.
The website also includes its own lederhosen shop where a pair of the leather breeches will set you back 66 euros.
For once the women’s range is slightly more affordable at 47-57 euros, but who said it’s exclusively female? Wigs are available too.
If you feel your traditional attire might not find use beyond the confines of the 2,800-person tent, the clothes will also be available to rent – either before or on the day itself. (LS)
