Nowadays you can find the Oktoberfest on every continent of the earth. The scattered German colonies like to cultivate their customs and it is not surprising that also held regularly in the south of Gran Canaria where Germans have the largest share of the tourist numbers.


For years, the hotel Maritim Playa, which is located in the centre of Playa del Inglés right next to the shopping center Kasbah, at the end of September and beginning of October celebrate on the pool terrace and scream loudly: “O’zapft is”. Over the years, it has become an important meeting place for tourists and residents, and more and more Canarios can be found here in the cozy ambience.

The whole spectrum of a real Oktoberfest is offered:

1.- Real pork shank, white sausages, meatloaf, sausages, chicken and much more. Also available: wheat beer, wine, etc. The beer is traditionally served in one-litre glasses.

2.- Enjoy the traditional atmosphere:

  • Banquets
  • Waitress and staff in lederhosen and dirndl
  • Festive music with live singers to sing along and sway
  • A Bavarian Olympiad with sawing logs and nailing

There is also a small hut where you get typical shots. You´ll get Marille, Obstler, Willi and Kirsch or you can order a “One-Meter- Schnaps”. For this purpose, a carpenter was specially commissioned. Admission is free. However, the organizers ask for reserving a table reservation at: 928 762 365.
