Are you sitting around waiting for Oktoberfest like an excited kid waiting for Santa? Well get over to Rotterdam this summer and warm up with a visit to HOP Bierfestival. Although this event doesn't carry the reputation of the world famous German festival, it still has the perfect key ingredient to make it a success - beer.
Rotterdam's highly anticipated HOP Bierfestival comes to Oude Westen's neighbourhood park, where a number of micro-breweries set up stalls presenting locals and tourists with their delicious varieties of craft beer. Attracting thousands across the two day event, you can expect a vibrant, bustling atmosphere while you sit drinking with friends to the sound of talented acoustic performers.
At the entrance you'll even be presented with your very own glass and once you've finished drinking a few brews, head for one of the pop up food stands which offer a mouth watering selection of tasty treats, perfect for lining your stomach. Scheduled for August, the only thing left to hope for is some warm weather. Yet whether rain or shine, the people are only really here for one thing ... and we can guarantee there's plenty of that.
- Get there: Use the metro if the event venue isn't within walking distance.
- Stay: Find a hotel in the city centre in the Cool District.
