Family place for a relaxed Wiesn with children

There is a separate place for families in Wiesn: Familienplatzl is located on Straße 3 / Ost and is marked with neon lights. Here, rides, Oktoberfest fun and hospitality are brought together in one street.

The beer garden offers family snacks. Also to be discovered in a family atmosphere: a flight for a child and a position where you can throw darts and rifles.

Family days at Oktoberfest

Family offers are available at Oktoberfest every Tuesday from 12:00 to 19:00. Some showmen and women offer cheaper merry-go-round rides on family days, while others offer four chips for the price of one. Beer tents also have a family lunch menu, especially chicken, spaetzle and soft drinks are cheaper then.

The Hofbräuzelt is particularly active here, and from 2022 it will set up its own “family stalls”. Between 11.30 and 16.00 on weekdays there is plenty to paint, make handicrafts and small gifts. Additionally, every Tuesday between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., the rear balcony is reserved for around 600 parents with children – without prior notice.

By the way: There are cheaper prices for the little ones, not only for the Family Day. Yellow stickers with the word “Wiesn Wastl” draw attention to “Wiesn Hits for Kids”. As part of this campaign, several booths, tents, food stalls and smoking rooms have prepared offers that are especially suitable for children at lower prices. Sometimes there are even small kids only menus.
