As of now, new reservation requests are accepted, even for Sundays.

Dear Wiesndamisch *,

February brings some new reservations starts. The Schottenhamel-Festhalle is introducing a new process by strangely only accepting lunch time reservations as of now and later continuing with afternoon slots. At least, new customers are even able to reserve Sunday slots from noon to 6 p.m.

The Schützenzelt was also expected to start taking reservation requests (German only) starting February 1st, but has in the meantime announced to not do so before February 21st. As usual, we only expect them to rather uninteresting lunch time reservations between Monday and Thursday to new customers.

Returning customers of the Hofbräuzelt should not forget to send their email on Thursday, when they will accept requests from regulars one month early.

Also in February, without naming a precise date, the Winzerer Fähndl and and the Weinzelt are expected to start taking reservation requests. We’ll let you know, when we know more. Don't forget our reservation overview page which lists all the important dates.

For all those who don’t have much Oktoberfest experience, we put together a nice Oktoberfest trip planner. Now is the perfect time to plan, as lots of hotels still have free rooms.
