The Armbrustschützenzelt is one of the oldest tents at the Oktoberfest, making its debut at the 1895 festival.
Armbrustschützenzelt literally translated is "Crossbow Shooters Tent", and as such the theme of the tent revolves around hunting and the crossbow shooting that continues to this day inside the tent.
Often you can still get into this tent when others like the Hofbräu, Hacker or Schottenhammel have closed their doors, and the atmosphere inside is at least as good as the rest.
The Armbrustschützenzelt is one of the larger tents, however is somewhat more traditional than many of the others, with a genuine Bavarian band keeping up the tradition of the brass music in the middle of the tent.
Like most tents, the area around the music podium in the middle is usually not reserved, however the boxes around the edges as well as the balcony require reservations.
Paulaner Oktoberfestbier is served here, and only Paulaner than has been brewed in Munich.
The Armbrustschützenzelt is located on the western side of the main drag towards the north between the Hippodrom and the Hofbräu-Festzelt. If you arrive at the Theresienwiese U-Bahn station, this will likely be the first tent you will see as you walk up the street towards the tents.
