Here’s a description of the 14 legendary big tents (Festhalle) of the Oktoberfest. The origins, the distinctive characteristics, the features, the setting, the music, the entertainment, the culinary specialities, the capacity and the beer served.

Each tent is different from each other and in all of them, the Oktoberfest has a special atmosphere. It is important to choose in what tent you are going to spend the day at the Oktoberfest, depending on different factors. You can select a tent based on your preferred beer, or based on your culinary styles, or even your age. In some, a softer environment is found, suitable also for families and children, in others the atmosphere is more “frenetic” and lively, while others instead, are distinguished by their classier attendance. Additionally, a number of them hold some of the important events in the 16 days of the Oktoberfest programme, occasions not to be missed in order to experience the deeply rooted tradition, like the “O’zapft is!” for example on the opening day at the SCHOTTENHAMEL, or the mass and the carnies club of the HIPPODROME”.

They range from 2,500 seats in the WEINZELT (the smallest of the large tents) up to almost 11,000 in the WINZERER FÄHNDL with Paulaner beer.

This is the heart of the Oktoberfest, a true icon of the festival, and of course you cannot go to Munich without spending time in one of these 14 tents.

It would be an understatement to say that they are part of the Wiesn tradition, instead it must be said that they are the true exponents, that enhance the fame of the Oktoberfest making it the largest peoples festival in the world.

Entering  the right tent especially for first time visitors should not be a dictated by chance, but a considered choice, decided on beforehand, based on your preferences, at any rate however each tent is steeped in tradition and immersed in the typical Wiesn atmosphere.
