Oktoberfest at the Goethe Institute: Party On the Roof! ! O´zapft is”

Here's your chance to enjoy a Weißwürste, Bretzeln and Bier while listening to DJ Arndt Peltner's rocking German tunes. It's Oktoberfest – “Party on the Roof” with DJ Arndt Peltner from Radio Goethe.

When: Friday, October 1, 2010, from 6pm
Where: Goethe-Institut
530 Bush Street
Roof terrace, 6th floor
San Francisco
Suggested donation: $10 (incl. snacks & beverage)

Here's what the Goethe Institute has to say about this event: On October 1st, 2010, our motto is: “O´zapft is”. Come and celebrate the traditional Bavarian festival in a non-traditional way on the roof terrace of the Goethe-Institut San Francisco. You may want to try some special German delicacies such as Weißwürste, Bretzeln and Bier. But don’t think it is all about tradition: DJ Arndt Peltner from Radio Goethe will play the latest German party hits. Moreover, you will have the chance to try a German Lesson for Beginners. Guests who have never taken a class at the Goethe-Institut are invited to experience a German trial lesson.


  1. Germany party hits make the crowd go nuts, especially Ti Amo and Major Tom. Those two are my favorites. Parties will always be crazy in Germany. After all, that’s where Oktoberfest originated.

    1. Yes, it's one of the famous events in Germany, Sierra, and is now celebrated in other countries too, if I'm not mistaken. Anyway, I really like the taste of brewery of Augustiner-Bräu and Spatenbräu. They were among the ones I tasted when I visited a friend in Germany during the last Oktoberfest. We drank on her rooftop, by the way. It's pretty cold, but we had fun, nonetheless.
