Oktoberfest Small Festival Tents

In addition to the 14 large tents found at the Oktoberfest, there are also the 20 or so smaller tents. Many people find that these smaller tents offer a more old-fashioned but more authentic Oktoberfest feeling that creates the traditional charm of Oktoberfest. The small tents are very diverse and offer many alternatives: wild parties, traditional beer tents, rustic, homey, or contemplative. In the small tents, you can enjoy lovingly prepared Bavarian food in a peaceful atmosphere. And of course, there is refreshing Oktoberfest beer. Often, you’ll be served by the tent hosts themselves.
