German Festival of Maifest Begins at Grand Hyatt Dubai
While many are familiar with the German festival of Oktoberfest, the Spring offering of Maifest is lesser known, but is celebrated in much the same way. For the third year running, following its previous success, the Grand Hyatt Dubai will be laying on a mammoth spread of German delights, including traditional favourites of authentic Kalbsbratwurst (sausages), seasonal spring fare of Spargel (asparagus) and popular dessert, Erdbeerschnitte (a type of strawberry gateau), while the Die Kirchdorfer band, flown in from Munich will provide authentic merriment with traditional singing and dancing.
Before you become alarmed by the increasingly sweltering weather that could certainly put a dampener on proceedings, be rest assured that the event will take place in a fully air conditioned tent for maximum comfort, with traditionally dressed waiters and waitresses adding to the ambience of feel-good dining in true European style. What’s more, no tickets are required to attend, however a table booking is necessary, where diners can order from the a la carte menu. Not to worry if you can’t make it down during the week, you can enjoy these authentic delights during a lazy Saturday brunch.
