Being a part of the family square, it's an insider tip on busy days.
Edmund Radlinger’s Munich Wheat Beer Garden has been the center of the family square (Familienplatzl) since its inauguration in 2006. The beer garden, located on Street 3 East, is the only beer garden at the Oktoberfest that is not attached to a tent. Only a few seats are covered by marquees. Therefore and due to its rather hidden location, the Weißbiergarten can be a secret tip on very busy days.
Food is offered at the stand at the beer garden’s entry as well as at the table. There are a couple of special offers that are served family-style. For example giant Schnitzels or pork knuckles to feed a whole group for a pretty acceptable price.
Despite the Weißbiergarten’s name, host Edmund Radlinger was able to acquire the right to add actual Oktoberfest beer to the menu in 2013. It’s known to include very affordable lunch offers. Non-alcoholic beverages could be cheaper, though, especially given the family orientation.
