Overall Paulaner Festzelt Decor & Vibe

A rotating Paulaner beer is the star of the show at this bright yellow tent, where the band is perched on an elevated gazebo. This tent is a really fun tent with a cozy, family-friendly vibe during the day, then becoming a party-house at night.

Seriously, the lights dim, the giant Paulaner beer in the center glows, and the band busts out hit after hit (from both traditional Oktoberfest classics and international bangers).

This is a really fun tent to spend the evening in, but it gets PACKED because it’s very popular among locals with reservations, so be sure to get here early.
