Join the Oktoberfest celebrations at The Charles Hotel in Munich
Munich, August 2013 – From 21 September to 6 October, over six million local and international visitors will descend on Munich for its legendary Oktoberfest, a celebration of Bavarian Ale, live music, parties, dirndls and lederhosen. In keeping with the party atmosphere, Rocco Forte’s The Charles Hotel will be offering its guests a number of Oktoberfest-themed treats including tailor-made costumes for women, spa treatments and the hotel’s very own ‘Wiesn’ hut. During the 16-day festival, reception staff will be welcoming guests in traditional black and gold Bavarian costumes.
Located in the heart of Munich within the Old Botanical Garden, guests of The Charles Hotel will be well placed to participate in all the Oktoberfest action. For ladies wishing to fully embrace the Oktoberfest spirit, The Charles Hotel has partnered with renowned local dirndl maker ‘Schatzi’ offering a custom-made haute couture dirndl created by celebrated dirndl designer Katharina Lukacs. To complete the look, stylists at The Charles SPA will be on hand to do hair and make-up. The Charles Hotel’s Oktoberfest package starts from €3,000 and includes:
• Two nights’ accommodation for two people with breakfast in a classic king room
• One personalised dirndl by Schatzi (ready within 48 hours) with a bottle of Ruinart Champagne at the fitting
• Return Limousine transfers for dirndl fitting
• Oktoberfest hair & make-up session in The Charles Spa
• Additional nights can be booked from €690 per room, per night
The Charles SPA is also offering exclusive spa treatments designed to banish hangovers and re-energise jaded Oktoberfest revellers. The Hangover Treatment costs €140 and includes a Bloody Mary cocktail, a relaxing foot, neck and head massage and a hyaluronic face mask which revitalises and plumps up tired skin.
Guests can begin the ‘Wiesn’ festivities at the hotel’s very own Oktoberfest Hut serving Bavarian speciality beers and traditional snacks such as sausages and warm pretzels with Obadzda, a local cream cheese delicacy made with Camembert, butter, paprika and garlic.
