Kalbsbraterei Oktoberfest Tent

A perfect blend of cozy days and lively nights, this small tent is a great attraction for visitors attending Oktoberfest. 

Established in 1973, the  tent is known for its veal dishes and rustic charm. Hosted by Enrich and Jacqueline Hochreiter, who took over the ownership in 2014, this tent can host 300 guests at a time. 

It’s a huge place known to be the “Queen of Alpine,” made up of Swiss pine woods, and you will be served a weisswurst breakfast inside the tent.  The change from Sigfried Able’s Kalbs-Kuchl to the current Kalbsbraterei highlights a strong commitment to maintaining traditional values and a talent for providing excellent hospitality, which has made it a well-known and appreciated destination.
