Lunchtime at the Wiesn, “Italian weekend” and family days
The Munich resident who attends Oktoberfest knows his business and knows when one can enjoy a grilled chicken and a fresh beer on site, without a reservation, and take their time over it. For everyone else, we have compiled the empirical data and figures in our Oktoberfest Barometer.
On “Italian weekend” – the weekend in the middle – it is particularly full. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, then it can get pretty busy in the tents. Also on the two Tuesdays – the family days – there’s more people in the afternoon. But that’s less in the tents and more by the stalls and rides for the little ones.
And of course the public holiday, October 3rd, which Wiesn always falls on, attracts lots of visitors, especially when the following day is a Friday.
