A woman’s guide to Oktoberfest at The Charles Munich
Women now account for more than 50 percent of attendees at Munich’s famed Oktoberfest, and during this year’s festival The Charles Hotel in Munich has developed a guide to help females navigate the festival and understand the etiquette.
This comes in addition to an exciting package to visitors which includes a two nights stay and a personalized, custom-made Bavarian dress. From dress code to dancing, food and beating the queues, The Charles hotel advises women on all the necessities.
Information includes the amount of calories contained within popular festival food such as roasted almonds, candy floss, fried sausages and ‘Hendel’.
It also explains the importance of looking a person in the eye and saying ‘Prost’ when ‘clinking’ glasses, as well as refraining oneself from looking like a tourist with a t-shirt saying ‘I survived Oktoberfest’.
Instead, The Charles explains that women should wear traditional costumes such as the ‘Dirndl’, a pretty Bavarian dress which comes in many different colours and varying skirt lengths.
Moreover, women guests can take advantage of the hotel’s Oktoberfest package – offered from September 17th to October 4th, starting from AED 6,657 for two nights – which includes a personalized Dirndl made by well-known Bavarian designer: Schatzi Dirndl.
Having trained at the Esmond international fashion school, Katharina Lukas – founder of Schatzi Dirndl – blends the classic national costume with luminous colour, playful embroidery and Swarovski jewels.
Transportation to and from the designer’s store for fitting is also included, making this an exceptional, one-of-a-kind experience for any female visiting The Charles hotel during this festive period.
To further highlight this important fixture on Munich’s annual calendar of events, the hotel’s spa has also put together a ‘Wiesn Warm-Up Spa Treatment’, using hops, malt and yeast. Plus, before approaching the event itself, guests can visit the hotel’s ‘Wiesn Warm-Up’ where they will be treated to an authentic stall on the terrace of its Restaurant Davvero providing pretzels, Obazda cheese and many more much-loved Bavarian delicacies and refreshments.
