The Grand Hilton Seoul is gearing up to host its annual Oktoberfest, marking the 10th anniversary of one of the city’s largest beer festivals.

The festivities will kick off on Sept. 3 at the hotel’s convention hall. It will feature unlimited Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier and Weihenstephaner Original Lager on tap, along with traditional German food including Bavarian white sausage, schweinshaxe, Black Forest ham and a wide choice of buffet dishes – much like Germany’s original Oktoberfest.

This year’s festival will also include music by the legendary Anton Band from Munich. To maintain the authentic atmosphere of Oktoberfest, the hotel’s staff will be dressed in traditional costumes to match festivities in Germany.

In honor of its 10th anniversary, festival attendees will be given a pack of beauty masks, a voucher for premium cosmetic brand Treeannsea, eco bags, perfume samples, among other things. There will also be a lucky draw featuring prizes such as Lufthansa airline tickets, hotel vouchers and items from Honeydew Rabbit, Moschino, AutoVis and Cafissimo.

Tickets for Oktoberfest are 140,000 won ($123). The hotel also recently launched early-bird ticket sales for the event, offering a 15-percent discount until July 31.
