Do you miss Oktoberfest, too? Here's how to create a meaningful Oktoberfest at home.
So ein Pech!
No Octoberfest this year. Oktoberfest would have been from September 19 to October 4.
So...we make our own!
Here are the three ingredients to make yourself a fun (and safe) Oktoberfest right at home:
Schlager. Essen. Dekorationen.
Schlager Music. Food. Decorations.

Schlager is its own genre of music. It's a mix of traditional tunes and pop music and it's really distinct. A lot of Schlager TV shows in Germany show people sitting around tables, bobbing their heads and smiling while a singer steps between the tables, lip-syncing to a song. Yep, Milli Vanilli style.
You can stream Schlagerparadies.de for free right here.
Musik - fertig!
