It will soon be time to don your lederhosen, grab a stein and revel in all things Germanic as the Bristol German Bierfest returns to the city’s Millennium Square.
Over the long weekend at the end of May there will be great food and fun for the whole family, along with some cracking beers of course, in a pop-up German village right in the heart of the city.
There will be wooden huts selling Bratwurst and other traditional German foods and an exclusive Sekt garden, named after the famous sparkling wine, where you can raise a glass of something delicious to the great Bristol summer (hopefully).
The FunTime area will be the place to find kid-friendly activities and in the evening the grown-ups can enjoy the Bavarian FestTent which will feature a German DJ show, dance floor and waiters in the traditional outfits of lederhosen and dirndl. Sitting on the familiar long wooden benches enjoying some steins and maybe a schnitzel you’ll be able to forgive all those penalty shoot-out defeats at the hands of the Germans.
