Hofbräu Festzelt

Brewery - Hofbräu

Hofbrau logo One of the largest (and most notorious) tents on the fairgrounds. This baby holds 10,000 screaming crazy people. It's the only tent I know of where you can buy a bier while not having a place to sit. Most all other tents require a person to be sitting at a table before the Bier Frau takes your order. But here, in front of the band, there is a central area called "The Pig Pen" where you can stand at tall tables and party.
People come from all over the world to experience this tent. Many international folk are here; especially Italian's, Brit's, Aussie's, the Irish and American's. Expect to see a lot of craziness in this tent. And if you are happening to stand towards the middle of the tent, under Aloisius, be prepared to take a shower...in bier! Tent
This tent is not for the faint of heart and if you don't like crowds, then avoid this tent on Fridays and especially Saturdays. This year, München-TV is broadcasting nightly from this tent starting at 6PM local. You may recall that they used to be at the Winzerer-Fähnd'l. Tune in to see the craziest tent on the Wiesn!
