Overall Schützen-Festzelt Decor & Vibe

Freshly renovated in 2015, the Schützen-Festzelt is a gorgeous tent with alpine flair that flies under the radar thanks to its location tucked away at the far end of the Oktoberfest grounds.

I’ve found that it tends to attract an older crowd, certainly during the day, and the atmosphere here is classier and more refined than some of the other party tents.

With a beautiful outdoor balcony that overlooks the Oktoberfest ferris wheel and the grounds below, this is also the tent where they host the traditional Oktoberfest shooting competition, since once upon a time this is the tent where marksmen would hang out and… shoot things.

I like this tent a lot for a more laid-back beer with friends, although it does get pretty bumpin’ in the evening!
