Barrier-free fun of Oktoberfest for the old and young
The Oktoberfest's showmen and market traders are happy to provide assistance within the scope of their possibilities and to accommodate the wishes of people with disabilities. Participation at the Wiesn is also possible for people with disabilities.
Barrier-free fun on the Ferris wheel, ghost train & Co.
The Munich Oktoberfest has a special attraction for people with disabilities. The large Ferris wheel, landmark of the Munich Wiesn, has a ramp that wheelchair and walker users can use to reach the two gondolas suitable for wheelchairs under their own power. The ramp to the station area of the ride is designed to meet standards.
Driving yourself in the bumper cars? The bumper car companies Distel , Geier ("Bayern-Crash") and Steinhart (2-post bumper car) invite you with a ramp and vehicles with manual throttle control to ride around.
The ghost rides „Geisterpalast“ , Geisterschloss“ and „Fahrt zur Hölle“ offer barrier-free access. The "Wilde Maus" also has a ramp, as do the "Jumanji" ride and the two wave fliers.
Children with disabilities are also catered for: in addition to ramps with which children's rides, children's carousel are equipped, the "Children's Dream Loop" is also equipped with a lap belt restraint system.
Barrier-free fun at shooting, playing and throwing booths
Barrier-free access to the shooting and throwing booths is ensured by ramps, depending on the condition of the booth location.
If a low counter is available (Eichel shooting gallery, Kraus shooting gallery, "Globus" shooting gallery), wheelchair users can also test their aim. The throwing booths "Ringwerfen" and "V.I.P. Party" invite you to throw at targets. At the Oidn Wiesn, the throwing booths are accessible at ground level. On the historic bowling alley, all nines can be pushed even in a wheelchair.
Barrier-free at snack stands and beer bars
A low sales counter, such as at the "Golden Cockerel", the street sale at Käfer's Wiesn Schänke, the Heinz chicken and sausage fryer, the Poschner chicken and duck fryer and at the "Winter Fischhaus", makes shopping easier for people in wheelchairs. This is also the case at the "Herzmalerei", where you can pick up your gingerbread heart directly as a souvenir.
Various beer bars offer drinks as well as a toilet for the disabled.
