Guide to Oktoberfest Beer Tents : Which One to Choose?

Toliko šotorov za pivo, tako malo časa. Na Oktoberfestu v Münchnu lahko izbirate med 17 glavnimi pivskimi šotori (plus 21 manjšimi šotori) – dovolj, da zapolnite dva tedna festivala.

Toda izbira “pravega” je lahko velika. Kateri šotor Oktoberfest je dobra izbira za družine, ima najboljše jodlarje ali je najbolj priljubljen med domačini?

Če imate določen šotor, ki bi ga radi obiskali, pošljite rezervacije zgodaj v letu, običajno do marca. Če so bile nekoč rezervacije le po telefonu ali faksu, se festival končno modernizira in večino prošenj obravnavajo prek spleta. Toda tudi če nimate rezervacij, so nekatera mesta rezervirana za vstop, na primer ob sobotah, nedeljah in praznikih.

Ni vam treba vnaprej rezervirati mize (vendar bi jo morali) in vstop je prost, zato obiščite vse in poiščite svojega najljubšega. Tukaj je vodnik po vseh pivskih šotorih na Oktoberfestu.

Schottenhamel

Schottenhamel iz leta 1867 je najstarejši šotor na Oktoberfestu. Mnogi pravijo, da je to tudi najpomembnejše, saj se v Schotenhamelu vse začne. Točno ob 12. uri na dan odprtja Oktoberfesta münchenski župan začne festival s točenjem prvega soda piva z močnim ” O’zapft is !” v šotoru Schottenhamel.

To je tudi eden največjih Oktoberfest šotorov s skoraj 10.000 sedeži in je kraj za zabavo mladih. Tam se nahajajo številne münchenske študentske organizacije in nosi vzdevek Das Zelt der Jugend genannt (šotor mladosti).

Hofbräu

Najbolj znana pivnica Hofbräuhaus je odprta vse leto v središču Münchna .

Na Oktoberfestu je ta priljubljeni šotor poln domačinov in tujcev. Ima skoraj 7.000 sedežev v notranjosti in bavarska oompah glasba napolni zrak. Maskota šotora, Alojzij, visi s stropa skupaj z lestenci, ovitimi z dišečim hmeljem.

Mnogi gostje in vsi natakarji so oblečeni v tradicionalna oblačila in ta šotor ima zelo živahno vzdušje.

  • Streženo pivo : Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier
  • Rezervacije: Mesto na Oktoberfestu lahko rezervirate na spletu po e-pošti (reservierung@hb-festzelt.de) ali v pivnici v zadnjem delu stavbe.

Marstall

Marstall, ki je leta 2014 prevzel nadstropni šotor Hippodrom, je najnovejši šotor in eden prvih šotorov, ki jih vidite ob vstopu na Oktoberfest. V tem razkošnem šotoru za 3200 gostov kraljujejo zlati konji. Razpoloženje je civilizirano s plesom rezerviranim za tla (ne klopi) in otroci so dobrodošli do večera.

Prehranjevanje tukaj je bolj ustvarjalno kot tipična bavarska hrana , ponujajo celo vegetarijanske jedi in jedi brez glutena. Naročite sekt (peneče vino) in ga razvrstite na Oktoberfest.

  • Streženo pivo : Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu
  • Rezervacije: rezervirajte mizo na spletu .

Heker-Pschorr

S skoraj 10.000 sedeži je Hacker še en izmed velikih šotorov na Oktoberfestu. Njegov idilični strop je poslikan kot nebesa z modrim nebom in belimi oblaki, ki odmevajo modro in belo bavarske zastave. Domačini ta šotor imenujejo Himmel der Bayern (nebesa za Bavarce ), streha pa se lahko ob še posebej lepih dneh zloži nazaj .

Če potrebujete odmor od tradicionalnih godb na pihala, je šotor Hacker prava izbira za vas. Po 19. uri se vzdušje dvigne in rock skupina pripravi ljudi do plesa na lesenih klopeh.

To je tudi najboljše mesto za zaključek festivala, saj gostijo neuradno zaključno slovesnost Oktoberfesta, skupaj z iskricami in petjem.

  • Postreženo pivo : Hacker-Pschorr
  • Rezervacije : Rezervirajte mizo na spletu .

Avguštin

Pri Augustinerju kraljuje tradicija. Pivo še vedno strežejo iz lesenih sodov in mnogi Muenchnerji menijo, da je to najboljši šotor na Oktoberfestu. Je tudi ena najboljših možnosti za družine. V povezavi z družinskimi dnevi ob torkih ima ta šotor “Otroški dan”, kjer lahko majhni gostje jedo in pijejo s popustom.

However, it can be hard to get in as 200 tables are usually reserved for regulars.

Winzerer Fähndl

This is the largest tent at Oktoberfest with seating for almost 11,000 people. Winzerer Fähndl and its world-famous Paulaner beer is easily spotted with its six-meter (80-foot) high rotating Paulaner beer glass.

Enter the tent with thousands of FC Bayern Munich soccer fans and locals, both young and old.

  • Beer served: Paulaner
  • Reservations: Reserve your table online.

Löwenbräu

The 15-foot lion sitting above the entrance of the Löwenbräu tent is hard to miss. Every now and then it even lets out a majestic roar of “Lööööwenbräu” and takes a sip from its beer.

No wonder local soccer players from TSV 1860 and their fans like to come here – their nickname is “The Lions”. Inside, the almost 6,000 seats feel like they are within a giant beer barrel which suits the older local crowd.

  • Beer served: Löwenbräu
  • Reservations: Reserve your table online or by e-mail to mail@loewenbraeuzelt.de.

Ochsenbraterei

A massive ox on a revolving spit showcases the highlight of this tent. The name is appropriately German for “ox rotisserie”.

The tent has been around since 1881 and is a great place to party to a big brass band and eat the iconic meal of ochsen spieß. It is just as much about the food as the beer.

  • Beer served: Spaten
  • Reservations: Reserve your table online or by e-mail to info@ochsenbraterei.de.

Armbrustschützenzelt

This beer tent translates as “crossbow shooters tent” for good reason; a crossbow competition has been organized at Oktoberfest since 1895 and is still one of the highlights of Oktoberfest today.

If you are not into shooting sports, you can still have a great time with live music, dancing, and sing-alongs.

  • Beer served: Paulaner
  • Reservations: Send your written reservation request per fax to 089/23703705 or by mail to Sparkassenstr. 12, 80331 Munich. Requests sent via email will not be processed. More information and open times online.

Pschorr-Bräurosl

Enter past the two 20-meter-high maibäume (maypoles) to reach the Bräurosl beer tent that has been serving up the beers and party since 1901. It is still owned by the same family.

Alongside Oompah bands, the Bräurosl is proud to have its own authentic Bavarian yodeler. But its not entirely orthodox as the first Saturday is “Gay Sunday“.

  • Beer served: Hacker Pschorr
  • Reservations: Reserve a table by e-mail at info@braeurosl.de. There is more information about the process online.

Käfer’s Wies’n-Schänke

Want to spot some celebrities? Your chances are pretty high at Käfer’s Wies’n-Schänke. With 3,000 seats, it is one of the smaller Oktoberfest tents and the atmosphere is less hectic, more luxury. The tent is also famous for its lavish gourmet food.

The Käfer’s Wies’n-Schänke is open late, but that doesn’t make it any easier to make it past the velvet rope. For the best chance at a seat, you might try the additional 1,900 seats in the biergarten.

  • Beer served: Paulaner
  • Reservations: Reserve a table online.

Schützen

Close to the famous Bavaria statue, this small beer tent is actually off the main drag and full of locals. It used to be fairly quiet, but its cozy atmosphere has made it more popular recently.

It is known for its shooting hall complete with 100 shooting stands. This is where the local shooting clubs host their championships.

  • Beer served: Löwenbräu
  • Reservations: Reserve a table online. If you have questions, call 49 (0) 89 23181224 or consult their English FAQ.

Fischer Vroni

Take a break from the pork and visit Fischer Vroni. True to its name, this seafaring tent in the middle of Bavaria features a boat for a stage and is famous for its grilled “fish on a stick“, plus 16 other kinds of fish on the menu.

This is also the location of of a large LGBT party on the second Monday.

  • Beer served: Augustiner
  • Reservations: Register online

Weinzelt

Amid a sea of beers, this is the place to get a glass of wine. The small wine tent has an extensive wine list as well as sekt (sparkling wine). If you must have a beer, Paulaner Weissbier is also on offer.

Besides traditional Oktoberfest dishes, the wine tent has seafood and Thai on its menu. The tent is also not as crowded as other Oktoberfest venues, and you’ll find many families among the visitors enjoying the normal tables with seat backs.

It is also quite late (until 1am) so it is the ideal location for a nightcap.

  • Wine served: More than 15 different wines and sekt like Nymphenburger
  • Reservations: Call or e-mail for reservations at +49 (0)89 290 705 17 or weinzelt@kuffler.de. You can also find more information online.
