The 2020 Munich Oktoberfest cannot take place but we can still celebrate the time-honoured beer festival and fair in Singapore. Many restaurants are making sure that we can feast on sumptuous German fare and toast with good Bavarian beer for Oktoberfest Singapore 2020.
Paulaner Bräuhaus Singapore is a brewery and restaurant that has been at Millenia Walk ever since the mall opened. Oktoberfest is celebrated in Germany in September every year, but the 2020 Munich Oktoberfest has been cancelled because of COVID.

Bamberg is a town located in the north of Bavaria, Germany. It can be covered on a day trip from Munich or Nuremberg (2.5 or 1.0 hours by train respectively). A large part of Bamberg has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993. The pictures of this quaint little town proved irresistible and we made a visit to the town during our recent trip to Germany. We made the most of our day trip by stopping by two unique restaurants in Bamberg – the smoked beer brewery Schlenkerla and Eckerts restaurant.
The only formal restaurant that we went to on our recent visit to Vienna was the Steirereck Restaurant that we had written about. Formal restaurants are nice but the meals take up too much time. We decided to have the rest of our meals in the Austrian capital in casual Vienna restaurants with a preference for local Viennese cuisine. Here is a list of the more memorable casual Vienna restaurants that we tried while visiting the tourist attractions of the city. Most of these restaurants are located in the centre of Vienna and walking distance from the St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
We can see why the Munich beer halls are so popular. The beer is good and affordable (around 9 euros or $14 for a litre). The food is substantial and also reasonably priced. The atmosphere is lively and traditional Bavarian. To save space to try other restaurants and other types of food in Munich we resolved to confine ourselves to two Munich beer halls (in addition to our outing to the Oktoberfest). The two which we settled on were Hofbräuhaus and Augustiner Keller.
