Tips for a relaxed visit to the Oktoberfest with children
Those who like it cozy should choose the quieter days during the week for the Wiesn stroll. The morning or early afternoon are also recommended for a stroll with children. The offspring may also be present at a snack in the beer tent. But what rules do parents and guardians need to be aware of? In addition to the Oktoberfest regulations and the house rules of the tents, there are also recommendations from the youth protection authorities. Basically, it is a decision of the legal guardians, whereby their task is to prevent harm to their children.
- The Oktoberfest regulations apply to stays on the Festwiese: children under the age of 6 - even when accompanied by adults - are not allowed in beer tents and catering establishments after 8 p.m., not even with a parent or guardian.
- Children and young people under the age of 16 are only permitted to be present on the Festwiese (and therefore also in the beer tents) after 8 p.m. if accompanied by a parent or guardian. They are then allowed to stay until the end of the Wiesn.
- Adolescents over 16 years of age may remain on the festival grounds until the end even without an adult, but in the tents (wine tent, Käfer) only until 24 o'clock
