ALTERNATIVE OKTOBERFEST VENUE: The Wiesnzelt, meaning literally the Oktoberfest tent, is an alternative beer fest that ironically doesn’t take place in a tent. Instead, it’s on at the Löwenbräukeller, the home of Munich’s most famous export beer.
The party runs every night (except for Sundays) during the regular Oktoberfest. Doors open on Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 pm. and on Friday to Saturday at 6:30 pm, beer swigging and Bavarian music fill the hall until 10pm and then DJ and rockier bands take over until silly o’clock. On other days during the Oktoberfest, the Wiesnzelt only opens at 10pm for the afterparty.
Location: Stiglmaierplatz, Munich.
More info and booking: Check out the official website at www.daswiesnzelt.de/en if you’re interested in going to this party.
