The small Oktoberfest tents

It isn’t just the 14 legendary large tents of the Oktoberfest that characterise the Wiesn. The 21 “small” tents are today more than ever an integral part of the tradition and contribute equally in creating the special atmosphere during the festival’s 16 days.

Some are a genuine piece of the Oktoberfest history. Particularly attentive to the quality of the food, thanks to the lower consumption, these tents range from the 60 seats of the WIESN GUGLHUPF CAFÉ to the 900 seats of the AMMER HÜHNER & ENTENBRATEREI. A quieter environment is the order of the day in the small tents generally and are suited to families, and to those seeking a relaxed place where they can chat in peace with a friend. The beer is the same as that served in the large tents, but in some of them, it’s not just beer that is served , but also coffee, tea and refreshments in general, while in others, exotic cocktails are served, such as the BODO CAFEZELT .

They certainly offer a different experience, such as that offered by the WIRTSHAUS IM SCHICHTL, famous for its fake decapitations (well over 25 per day!), or the CAFÉ KAISERSCHMARRN where today, the marriage of King Ludwig I of Bavaria and Teresa of Saxony is remembered, from whose marriage the Oktoberfest originated.

It is impossible to resist temptation, entering into one of these small tents, perhaps if only to try something sweet.

Each one differs from another in size, décor, entertainment and what beer is being served. Some of them are a “new entry” while others now have a genuine centuries-old tradition.
