VIDEO Bavarian-style pork knuckle, pretzels and music. Thirteenth Oktoberfest to be held in Transylvanian city

Bavarian-style pork knuckle, pretzels and Miss Oktoberfest are just some of the items that will feature at the 13th Romanian edition of the famous Bavarian beer festival.

The Transylvanian city of Brasov is calling this year’s festivities Lucky 13 or #NorocCu13.

It opens on Sept. 1 and ends on Sept 11  at the former municipal stadium. Brasov known as Kronenstadt which has a local German-speaking population has always hosted the Romanian edition of the festival.


Billed as “biggest party in south Transylvania,” organizers described it as ‘the great re-opening, no restrictions.’

Last year, during the pandemic festival goers needed to show they’d had a Covid vaccine and wear masks.

“There will be good vibes during the 11-day festival.  #And if you  didn’t know, a delicious beer has been  created specially for us, with a higher alcohol content and a combination of flavors to match Romanian and German dishes at the festival.”
