Overall Festzelt Tradition Decor & Vibe

Truthfully, this is one of my favourite tents at Oktoberfest. The atmosphere here is significantly different from other big tents – dancing on the benches aren’t allowed for example, and the crowd feels 90% local.

Imagine a cozy place to grab beer in stone Maßes while people do traditional folk dancing in the middle, and on occasion, where whipping boys come out to perform. It is the cutest, most atmospheric tent tucked away in the Oide Wiesn part of Oktoberfest.

It charges a 3 euro fee to enter, but is well worth it. If you’re wanting a break from the crazy party atmosphere, the Festzelt Tradition is a lovely escape.
