The festival tent beer gardens on the Wiesn
Many people don’t even know when they first visit the Wiesn: Every big tent also has a beer garden where you can enjoy your beer and half roasted chicken outside in fresh air and sunshine. And many of the small tents and “Hütte” also have open-air guest gardens. If you expect chestnut trees over your head and pebbles under your feet, you’ll be disappointed, but the beer gardens are a great alternative to tents — especially if they’re full or even closed. You’ll almost always find a place to sit in the beer garden, in part because you can’t make a reservation here. Many hosts have installed radiant heaters for cooler days. Beer and chicken taste just as good here, and if you sit near one of the doors to the tent, you’ll also hear some of the music and the atmosphere from inside.
