Why is Oktoberfest called so, when it mainly takes place in September??
Historical context: the first edition of the Oktoberfest took place in 1810 to celebrate princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen’s wedding.
Celebrations started on 21th October and went on until 6th October with a horse race. In the following years the festival was repeated, prolonged and finally re-scheduled in September.
Anticipating the feast in September meant better weather conditions. In fact, September nights are warmer and visitors can enjoy a walk in the gardens and on the “die Wiesen”. Historically, the last weekend of the Oktoberfest always fell in October, and this tradition continues today.
How much is one litre of beer?
Price of the beers is about 10€ per litre in each tent.
Are kids admitted inside the tents?
Yes, they are. Kids are admitted but those under the age of 6 must leave the tents at 20.00 pm even if they are accompanied by their parents.
It must be said however that crowded tents are not much fun for kids nor for their parents. Be informed that access to strollers/wheelchairs might be forbidden on the most crowded nights and at weekends for security reasons.
The official Family Day is on Tuesday from 12 am to 6 pm with reduced prices.
Is it possible to book a table at the Oktoberfest through oktoberfest-munchen.com?
To book a table is very hard. Try to contact our italian web site Oktoberfest-Monaco.it by clicking here. In alternative contact the official representatives of each tent
Can I access the tent without reservation?
Of course, food tents are open to everybody, only be prepared to long queues or try to arrive very early, especially if you travel in group. For instance on working days we suggest to arrive not later than 2.30 p.m., whereas on weekends you’d better be there by the early morning, otherwise you might be unable to enter inside the tents. Numerous groups must queue as well.
