The tent of the Hacker brewery is one of the most popular of the Oktoberfest. It's one of the few, which are packed starting at noon.
Actually, he just wanted to become a butcher. But after taking over the parents’ restaurant, Zum Wildpark, Toni Roiderer even become an extraordinarily successful landlord. So successful, that he became Willi Heide’s successor as the Oktoberfest landlords’ spokesman in 2002. Since 1989 he has been transforming his Hackerzelt, which is themed as the heaven of Bavarians since the 50s, to one of the few tents, which are crowded even at noon on weekdays.
In 2016, one year after Thomas Roiderer, Toni’s son took over, the tent was completely rebuilt from scratch. While many non-regular visitors may not even recognize, that there is a new tent, it becomes obvious when you recognize, that broader hallways make it seem way less overcrowded than it used to be and that the huge painting on the inside no shows contemporary instead of historic motifs.
The Hackerzelt’s guests are not only numerous but also rather young and arrive at the non-reserved section already before noon. The front gallery is the destination of the annual Oktoberfest visit of 1860 München’s football team.
