What’s special: a journey back in time to the twenties
Krinoline rides were a popular attraction at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, the Krinoline is the last original of its kind at the Munich Oktoberfest. If you want to experience the nostalgic riding pleasure, you have to come to the Wiesn. Compared to the modern rides to the left and right of the Krinoline, it seems more leisurely. Times have changed since the ride was first built on the Theresienwiese in 1924. Back then, it took three to four men to get the Krinoline going. It wasn’t until 1936 that operator Michael Großmann began to move the sofa gondolas electrically. However, the maximum speed doesn’t exceed 15 km/h. Already in the thirties, faster and more modern rides were enticing visitors away. To make the Krinoline more attractive again, Großmann relied on a brass band, for which he added a small balcony. Since 1938, the band has provided a special riding pleasure with traditional brass music.
