Modern tent: Look forward to the new Bräurosl

Landlord Peter Reichert and Hacker-Pschorr boss Andreas Steinfatt unveiled the Bräurosl's new tent on May 18, 2022, together with Wiesn boss Clemens Baumgärtner and tent builder Uli Pletschacher. With a ridge height of 15 meters, it will be the tallest of all the tents and can hold a total of 8,250 people, 560 of them in the covered outdoor loggia and 1,200 guests in the beer garden. In the completely redesigned interior, the color green will dominate in the future, following the tradition of earlier tents.

"I've already had experience at the Oidn Wiesn with the Zur Schönheitskönigin, but the Bräurosl with its long tradition is already something very special. I'm really looking forward to it," says Reichert, who already took over the tent in 2020, but can only celebrate its premiere this year. Due to a special permit, the Bräurosl is already set up on the Theresienwiese so that the new tent can be approved by the TÜV in time for the Oktoberfest.

The history: even today, all follow the beautiful Bräurosl

The festival hall bears the name of the beautiful Rosi Pschorr, the former Pschorr innkeeper's daughter. She was so popular with visitors to the Oktoberfest because of her beauty that the tent was soon named after her. In the future, too, a painting above the tent entrance will commemorate Rosi's special beauty and grace. In 2020, festival host Peter Reichert took over the marquee, which had been founded in 1901, from the Heide family of innkeepers, who had previously served the beer for 83 years.

The audience: regulars, families, and gays

Bräurosl has existed at Oktoberfest since 1901, and has been run by the Heide family for more than seven decades. For the next Oktoberfest, new landlords will take over the tent. We will keep you informed!

Many regular guests and companies appreciate the tradition, the Munich atmosphere, and the friendly service at Bräurosl, and they come back year after year. A timely reservation is therefore strongly recommended.

The music: The Kapelle Josef Menzl

Peter Reichert has engaged a new Oktoberfest band for the Bräurosl: The Kapelle Josef Menzl will heat up the guests from 2022, which has already gained folk festival experience at the Gäubodenfest in Straubing and since 2010 at the Oidn Wiesn. (Old) Bavarian brass music and, if necessary, even forgotten Schlager crooners are part of the repertoire of the band from the district of Regensburg, founded in 1995, according to their own statements "A mix of bad-tempered, partly funny and rarely, but if then over-motivated musicians."

The menu: crispy Wiesn treats to accompany your drinks

Bavarian delicacies are a natural part of the traditional tent. Peter Reichert is still working on the menu, but there is already an initial selection: At the daily changing lunch menu from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., guests can expect, for example, beef tartare (Monday) or "Kalbsfiaß bacha" - roasted calf's feet (Thursday). From the "Krönfleisch kitchen" there are daily between 11 and 14 o'clock white sausages, stock sausages or overnight cooked ox roast. And throughout the day, the sausage fryer provides guests with veal sweetbread sausage and Rostbratwürstl. Vegetarians and vegans will also be satisfied here, with quinoa patties or spinach-cheese pretzel dumplings. Of course, the Bräurosl serves the festival beer from Hacker-Pschorr.

For backseat drivers: maypoles and Gay Sunday

Finding the beautiful Bräurosl will continue to be quite easy: In front of the main entrance, two 20-meter-high maypoles will continue to tower into the sky as a landmark, visible from afar. The Bräurosl will also continue to exist "in real life": For the parade of the Wiesnwirte, a young lady slips into the dirndl of the "Bräurosl" and enters the festival meadow on horseback.
