This is by far one of the most exclusive tents at Oktoberfest, and is known for being the “celeb” hang-out – a cozy, intimate tent with gourmet food options. It’s so exclusive in fact that reservations aren’t even allowed in the evenings and weekends.

BUT, if you want to get a taste of the Käfer’s Wies’n-Schänke tent, the process is simple.

Basically you go on the online form here and select three time slots that you’re interested in, how many of the above dates you’d like to book (1, 2 or 3) and finally, your contact info.

Overall Käfer Wiesn-Schänke Decor & Vibe

Exclusivity reigns at this cozy tent, which is beloved among celebrities and gourmet foodies. While you’ll be hard pressed to get a seat here without a reservation (certainly not in the evenings), it’s a really lovely tent where you feel like you’ve escaped the drunken debauchery of Oktoberfest and found a cozy mountain chalet instead.

Never have I felt more FOMO than while walking through this tent at lunchtime! All the tables were decked with happy locals eating giant platters of gourmet, delicious looking food, usually with a bottle of sparkling wine on ice.

Sadly, pretty much all the tables inside are reserved, so you have no hope of just sliding in… but I did end up getting a table in the beer garden, where I sampled their very affordable lunch special (relatively speaking), which included a soup, duck with potato dumplings and apple compote, and a cup of coffee (which I never got TBH because I was too awkward to ask) for only 24.50.
