Smoking at the Oktoberfest
Bavaria has one of the strictest non-smoking laws in Europe. Since 1st Augsut 2010 smoking is forbidden also in the festival tents.
Thats why the landlords of the tents are planning to create non-smoking areas. In the hippodrom and the augustiner tent there are already balconies for smokers.
If you're catched during smoking, you have to reckon with going unserved or being evicted from the tent.
Smoking is still allowed in the festival tents.
