OKTOBERFEST AT SHERATON, KAMPALA STYLE
The Sheraton Kampala Hotel is the place to once again celebrate this year’s Oktoberfest, at least for those who were unable to fly to Munich for the real thing but even for those who went there and have a taste for more still.
From the 24th to the 27th will the traditional ‘Umptata’ music be played at the hotel in the evenings as classic German dishes and in particular the ‘Weisswurst’ will be served at the hotels’ restaurants, while German beer from Bavarian breweries will be available to make for authentic drinks.
The Sheraton has for years kept the tradition of celebrating one of Germany’s great festivals and fun fairs here in Kampala, regularly graced by the German Ambassador on opening night and with the hundreds of members of not just the German community in Uganda but also Ugandan members of the Uganda German Cultural Society meeting up over meals, music and fun time.
From past experience table reservations are highly recommended as sell out crowds crammed the Sheraton during previous year’s celebrations, so this is once more something to look forward to. Sauerkraut anyone or perhaps a Loewenbrau, a Paulaner or a Hofbraeu? Prosit!
