No Oktoberfest beer, weißbier only before 9 pm. Pricy menu for a champagne crowd. No unreserved tables inside but some standing room around the bars.

While the Weinzelt is not the only large beer tent to offer wine (Armbrustschützenzelt, Käfer, Marstall, and Schützenzelt do so as well), it is the only to offer wine instead of Oktoberfest beer. Wine stands have been a part of Oktoberfest since 1885 when a Spanish Bodega first opened. Today’s Weinzelt was established in 1984 by the sekt-producer Nymphenburger Sekt and was rebuilt in 2005.

The Weinzelt is very busy after 9 p.m. when all tables are reserved due to the fact, that it is one of only two tents allowed to open until 12:30 a.m. The rest of the day, however, Weinzelt may offer a rather intimate Oktoberfest experience due to very remarkable pricing.

The pricey menu features some unusual dishes, even a Thai one, and gears towards the same sort of guests as the Käfer Wienschänke, who are older and have fun spilling Champaign on others. The three bands do not play traditional brass music, but conventional party songs. Also, seating is different from the beer tents, with the whole central aisle divided into one-table stalls.

Following a redesign of the interior in 2015, the tent will receive new seating in 2023.

Anyone looking for wine at Oktoberfest is not limited to Weinzelt, by the way. The small tents and the owner-run and riflemen's tents are allowed to sell it as well.
