Every year again - the Oktoberfest, the fifth season in Munich, moves closer and closer with big steps.
"In the Munich Marstall, a court riding school built by Leo von Klenze, aristocratic society met for riding in the 19th century. And the Munich Oktoberfest is also closely associated with the theme of horses: In honor of the royal bridal couple Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, a horse race was held on the Theresienwiese on October 16, 1810 - the forerunner of today's Oktoberfest.
The Marstall tent is a reminder of the origins of the Oktoberfest. The horse is omnipresent. A four-horse team is enthroned above the entrance and the interior is decorated with many nostalgic magnificent horses made of wood. The heart of our tent is the music stage, which resembles a carousel.
The Marstall combines tradition and modernity in a stylish ambience. High class gastronomy and top service meet Bavarian cosiness. With brass music we serve freshly tapped beer, but also exquisite wines. We offer traditional delicacies as well as fine delicacies. Over 4,000 guests can be seated here. 3,200 in the marquee and 1,000 in the beer garden."
