Zur Bratwurst

The timber frame house on Esperantoplatz

Everything has an end, except the party at the Bratwurst. That’s why the small tent fills up relatively early — but there is often still a nice little spot to be found in the beer garden.

What’s special: the Bratwurstglöckl becomes “Zur Bratwurst”

The tent on Esperantoplatz has already been at the Wiesn once before, 100 years ago: It was built by Simon Bäumler, the landlord of the famous Nuremberg Bratwurstglöckl by the Munich Frauenkirche. In 2000, his descendent, Michi Beck, the former landlord of the “Bratwurstglöckl am Dom”, had it reconstructed. In 2007, Werner Hochreiter, landlord of the beer garden and "Hochreiter's Steirer am Markt" at the Viktualienmarkt, took over the conspicuous timber frame house and called it “Zur Bratwurst”.

The audience: young people and party-goers

The atmosphere in the “Bratwurst” is cozy, but from noon ‘til 11 pm, the various bands generate the typical Wiesn party vibe — including the cheerful “Rockaholix Buam” during the afternoon, and “Ois Easy” until the late evening. For this reason, the audience tends to be on the young side and not afraid to live it up until the small hours.

The menu: Augustiner from the wooden barrel

What’s special: “Zur Bratwurst” serves the popular Augustiner beer, meaning the Oktoberfest beer flows from the authentic 200-liter wooden barrels into the pint glasses. To eat, you can find the famous bratwurst from beechwood fire and other Wiesn classics, such as ham hock or an entire beef loin for pre-order, as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Only here: (almost) endless live music

“Zur Bratwurst” places a special emphasis on live music. Die Derbys, Ois Easy, Die Wuidara Pistols and the Rockaholix Buam, Roland Hefter and the Wiesn Buam Unplugged keep the party going non-stop from 12 noon to 11 pm.
