Every Tuesday is Family Day at Oktoberfest

Cheaper carousel rides and food offers

Whether it’s a ride on the Ferris wheel, a round at the shooting range, or a bag of roasted almonds: On Tuesday, the youngest visitors to the Wiesn get many wishes fulfilled. Twice per Oktoberfest, “Family Day” takes place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. with discounts for children and families.

Discounts for children at the Wiesn on Family Day

On both Wiesn Tuesdays until 7 p.m., numerous rides, performers, and snack stands offer special prices for children and families. In the “Teufelsrad” (Devil’s Wheel), entry for children is even free on Tuesdays. Parents only pay three euros. The large festival tents such as the Hacker Festzelt, the Bräurosl, the Augustiner-Festhalle, and the Hofbräu tent also offer children’s dishes and menus at special prices.

Every day is Family Day at the Familienplatzl.

The Familienplatzl on Wiesn-Straße 3 is open not just on Tuesdays, but every day. There, parents will find everything they need to make their Oktoberfest visit with the little ones more relaxing. Meals and snacks are served in children’s portions and at family prices — including a surprise. You can also bring your own food to the beer garden and heat it up in a microwave on site. For the extra little ones still too young for the Wild Mouse or the Wave Flyer, the Familienplatzl has a baby flight and throwing game with great prizes. As an extra service for families, there is a baby carriage parking garage and a baby changing room with changing table. By the way, the whole family place is laid out step-free with a wooden floor.
