Beer tents » Schottenhamel


The Schottenhamel Banqueting Tent is the oldest and most traditional Oktoberfest tent - the Schottenhamel family have been here since 1867. Back then the carpenter from Upper Palatinate, Michael Schottenhamel, erected the tent, which had space for 50 people, as a little wooden barn behind the Königszelt with his new wife. The family, now in its fifth generation, still occupies the same spot. Munich’s oldest beer tent was the first to have light provided by electricity in 1901. It’s hard to believe who helped the electrician to install the arc lamps: it was none other than Albert Einstein, who spent his holidays here and who later became famous around the world thanks to his theory of relativity. In addition to this early celebrity, the tent also has special meaning today: the traditional tapping of the first keg by the mayor takes place here every year. On average, the guests here are very young - this tent is also used as a meeting point for young people.
