German folk festival with beer and music
The International Beer Festival (Biermeile) celebrates the national drink of Germany with a three day folk festival. Along a section of Karl-Marx-Allee in the Friedrichshain district between underground stations Strausberger Platz and Frankfurter Tor, about 350 breweries from almost 90 countries serve approximately 2,400 different beer specialities.
The festival ground is divided into areas according to the geographical origins of the beers. Among them are several German states such as Bavaria, Saxony, Westphalia and Thuringia but also places much further away like Vietnam and Japan. Various stages along the street offer live music, shows and entertainment programmes. Hungry visitors will find a selection of German and international culinary delights on the beer mile.
