The tents and their opening times on the first day of the Wiesn.
The date for Oktoberfest 2023 is Saturday, September 16 through Tuesday, October 3. On the first Saturday of the Wiesn the beer tents open at 9 am. From 10 am there are non-alcoholic drinks and small bites to eat. At 12 midday the tapping of the barrel takes place in the Schottenhamel beer tent: the Oberbürgermeister taps the first barrel of Wiesn beer and then the beer flows across Oktoberfest and in all the tents into beer mugs.
