The Oktoberfest 2020 was cancelled. The 187th Munich Oktoberfest is planned to begin on September 18th 2021.

The Bräurosl gets a whole new building.

These days, Oktoberfest tents of the Paulaner group tend not to get extraordinarily old. The Winzerer Fähndl (Paulaner-Festzelt) already received several touchups since the current building was introduced in 2010 and this year, the only 15-year-old building of the Bräurosl is to be replaced with an entirely new structure.

As the last two new tents built by the construction firm Pletschacher, the Hacker tent and the Ochsenbraterei, are structured very similar, we expect the new Bräurosl to also receive a gallery on all four sides.

While the characteristic façade is most likely to essentially be recreated, we wouldn’t be surprised if the interior receives a major redesign. On the one hand, the former design doesn’t have a long tradition but was completely redone in 2004 and on the other hand, it may be the most interchangeable one of the large Oktobefest tents.

New Rides

Ride-wise, we didn’t hear any rumors about potential new attractions in 2020, as the local showmen didn’t acquire any spectacular new rides. Fortunately, in the last years, we were often surprised with attractions getting licensed although not being based in Munich.

We’re eager to find out the results of the licensing process which are expected to be published in late May or early June.
