The Hippodrom accounts for around 4,200 seats, and so is a relatively small tent but is famous for its special atmosphere. Its fame is due to the fact that it is said to be the tent where the greatest number of “flirts” occur in the whole of the Wiesn, especially in the beautiful “champagne bar”.
It is easy to meet celebrities here and to get an autograph. The beer served is Spaten Franziskaner Bräu. It is also distinguished for its excellent Bavarian cuisine. The carnies meet here for their traditional annual meeting, and the traditional religious ceremony is also held here.
