The traditions of “Oktoberfest” are carefully observed every year. September 22, at 12:00am, the mayor of Munich opened a barrel with an amber drink as a signal to start a big festival. Another “Oktoberfest” tradition is giant beer tents installation, which are perfectly visible in our online webcam. Annually there are 14 of them.

The most giant tent belongs to the brewery “Hofbrauhaus”, which can invite 11,000 visitors. Usually, there is a large table in the tents with the guests sit.

All tents are different and have their own distinctive feature. For example, in the Augustinian brewery tent (Augustiner-Festhalle) there is a beer from wooden barrels made by monks. In Winzerer Fahndl you can come with children: here is quiet and family-like atmosphere.
