What’s special: old Munich Oktoberfest culture
If you want to know what the Munich Oktoberfest felt like 140 years ago, you should visit the Schützenlisl tent on the Oidn Wiesn. This marquee has been on the Theresienwiese in Munich before: in 1881 as part of the 7th German federal shooting. Back then, the "Schützenli" "Coletta Möritz" not only adorned the tower facade, but also worked as a waitress in the marquee. She was a real institution in Munich - her popularity was often compared to that of the Münchner Kindl.
The Stiftl family wants to revive the Schützenlisl and is bringing it back to the Theresienwiese with all its good qualities. The tradition of folk singing is maintained. Well-known names from this period include Karl Valentin, Papa Geis and Weiß Ferdl. In the Schützenlisl, the best interpreters of today are given a stage. In addition to well-known old songs, new hits are also performed here.
