The Hofbräu-Festzelt (pronounced Hof-Broy) is the second largest tent at the Oktoberfest and is especially popular with Australians, Kiwis and Americans. It serves Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier, which is the strongest beer at the fest, weighing in at 6.3%.
It is unique for the fact that unlike other tents, the middle area is standing only. This can make it easier to mingle and talk to people, but also make for a pretty wild and raucous party once the beer has been flowing for a while.
The tent is decorated throughout with beer's main ingredient, Hops, with more than 600kg hanging from the roof alone.
In general, the block seats in the middle and the standing area are not reserved and can be taken by the general public. The balconies and the space underneath them are, in general, always reserved.
A tip if you're looking to save some money – around midday, the Hofbräu has lunch specials where you can get some genuine Bavarian food for a reduced price.
If you want a reminder of your day at the Hofbräu, the Maßkrug's that you drink out of are available for purchase inside the tent.
The tent is located on the Wirtsbudenstraße (the main tent street) almost directly in the middle, in between the Hacker Festzelt and the Armbrustschützenzelt.
This is definitely one of the more popular tents at the Oktoberfest, so if the weather isn't looking so great or your planning to visit on the weekend, make sure to get here early (before 8am on the weekends).
