Imagine sitting at a charming restaurant high in the mountains. As the polka music plays, you take a big bite of your piping hot bratwurst and wash it down with a satisfying sip from your frosty mug of beer. Are you enjoying an exotic vacation in a traditional Bavarian town? No, you are in Gatlinburg, Tennessee! The German music, food and drink described above are all part of Ober Gatlinburg’s Oktoberfest celebration. Located minutes away from our condos in Gatlinburg TN, Oktoberfest at Ober lasts throughout the month of October into November 3rd.
Throughout the fall, visitors to Ober will have the chance to hear authentic German music performed by The Bavarian Fun Makers Band every day of the week at the Seasons of Ober Restaurant. Dressed in traditional lederhosen and caps, this high energy band dances, yodels and plays the best oompah music in the Smokies. On Monday through Thursday, the band plays at 1 pm and 5 pm, and on Friday through Sunday, the band will play at Noon, 2 pm, 4 pm and 6 pm. This excellent music provides the perfect atmosphere for enjoying classic German dishes like bratwurst, sauerkraut, schnitzel, pretzels and strudel.
Another highlight of Oktoberfest is, of course, beer! Guests will have plenty of opportunities to have a pint or two at the upcoming Beer Garden Parties.
