Center area, side boxes and balcony:
Seating areas in the large Oktoberfest beer tents

 

Found your perfect tent? You can also reserve your seats in a specific area of the tent by selecting it in the online shop. The fourteen major tents offer three areas: the center area, side boxes and the balcony.

Center area Located in the middle of the tent, it is usually the largest section. This is where most of the dancing happens.
Boxes Usually located along the sides of the tent. Dancing is usually allowed in this area only in the evenings.
Balcony Due to being higher up, dancing is not allowed on the balconies.

 

At the heart of the action: Since dancing and swaying on the benches is encouraged in the center area, we recommend making reservations in this area if you are coming to let your party animal out. Quieter groups should make reservations in the side boxes or on the balcony. These are also a good choice for business customers. Dancing on the tables is prohibited in all tents and tent areas.
