Small Oktoberfest Tents

You already checked out the first page with 10 small and medium sized Oktoberfest tents?

Here are even more! My personal favorite on thispage is the Ammer's Hühnerbraterei. A friend used to have reservations in this tent and from being a bit boring years ago it has changed into a truly wonderful tent with great music and party.

Ammer's Hühnerbraterei

Hühnerbraterei Ammer Ammer has been at Oktoberfest since 1895, which makes it the oldest chicken roastery worldwide.

Since 2000 they sell only organically grown chicken. Apart from the classic Wiesn-Hendl you can eat all sorts of chicken soup and other chicken delicacies.

The medium-sized tent hosts 450 guests and about the same amount in the outside area. Starting at 6:30 p.m. "Claudia Sommer & Band" fills the air with music and takes care of the party feeling.

Bodos Backstube

Bodos Backstube Cafezelt This tent has a double identity.

During the day they serve breakfast starting at 9 a.m. with coffee and all kinds of sweet delights from the traditional apple strudel to cakes and tarts, to their own creation the (in)famous Kirschwasser (cherry schnapps) donut. Better you don't eat too many of them!

In the evening after 7 p.m. the tent converts into one gigantic bar with innumerable choices of exotic cocktails. The band "Jailhouse" takes care of the party mood. 450 can be seated in the tent.

Wiesn Guglhupf

Guglhupf Tent This tent is truly special: It's round and looks like a gigantic bundt cake (Guglhupf), but what is more, it's a merry-go-round!

You take a seat and while eating and drinking you're slowly turning in circles, which gives you a fantastic 360°-degree panorama of the Oktoberfest.

It is the smallest tent with only 60 seats.

Café Kaiserschmarrn

Cafe Kaiserschmarrn This Oktoberfest tent looks like a sweet fairy tale castle, it is an imitation of King Ludwig II's most famous castle Neuschwanstein.

It's owned by the famous Munich bakery Rischart and offers all the sweets and desserts you could ever want.

One of the main attractions in this coffee-tent, is that you can watch how the Kaiserschmarrn (a traditional Bavarian and Austrian sweet food) is made in a gigantic pan.

In remembrance of the wedding of Ludwig of Bavaria and Therese of Sachsen-Hildburghausen (you remember, the royal couple who started the Oktoberfest), every day they cut a big wedding cake. It is a great experience to eat one piece and feel as if you're transported back into the past to the first Oktoberfest ever.

In the evening the coffee tent converts to a party tent with wine, Champagne and cocktails, two live bands play Oktoberfest songs and there's lots of dancing. The only thing you don't get here is beer.

Wirtshaus im Schichtl

Wirtshaus im Schichtl The Schichtl is an old-fashioned magic show that has been on the Oktoberfest for ages.

During every presentation one of the visitors is "beheaded", that used to be a great magic trick and still is nice to see. If you're the one to be beheaded, it really feels scary!

Besides the traditional magic show in 2006 they added a tent with beer, organically grown food and good music. You find the entrance to the "Wirtshaus" to the left of the magic show.


Wildstuben Wildstuben (wild game's room) features a broad variety of game on the menu. The boar is the house specialty, and you should definitely try it.

In the evening a band plays party music. There are 200 seats and from the second floor you enjoy a great view over the Oktoberfest location.

And even more small tents, that I will describe soon:

Cafe Mohrenkopf
Küblers Bierstüberl
Hochreiters Haxnbraterei
Able Spanferkel
Heinz Wurst und Hühnerbraterei
Burtschers Bratwursthüttn
Hochreiters Weißbier Karusell
