German Drinking Song “Ein Prosit”

Prosit der GemĂĽtlichkeit Tischreservierung oktoberfest

Your Oktoberfest table reservation is complete? That’s great, however it is still vital to get to learn a few basic skills before your next Oktoberfest visit in 2019!

Germany is a country with lots of traditions – especially when it comes to drinking beer. One important basic skill of all bavarian beer drinkers is to tune in into a song called “Ein Prosit”. Traditional German bands entertain the crowd in most of the oktoberfest beer tents and create a cozy and sociable atmosphere. Usually every 20 minutes they initiate a quick break – which is obviously created for drinking beer– by playing the well-known song “Ein Prosit”. After this short song is finished, everyone raises their huge glasses with the words: “Oans, zwoa, drei, Gsuffa!” meaning “one, two, three, drink!”. You must sing this song, and drink after each song. It’s the law!
