Everything Duck

This year, in cooperation with the Ammer Wiesnzelt, we have a great lunch offer that can be booked on all working days and as long as it is available.

First, a short Traditional Wiesn Tour tour takes you around the Oktoberfest for an hour and gives you a great insight and overview of the world’s biggest folk festival. So that your mind and body can regain their strength, you will then head to the Ammer’s Chicken & Duck Roasting House for lunch. There you can try the unique chicken and ducks for yourself.

Did you know that the AMMER has been at the Oktoberfest since 1885? It is the first and largest chicken roastery in the world and is one of the oldest businesses on the Wiesn.

Joseph Ammer, then a poultry trader at the Viktualienmarkt, applied for a spot at the Wiesn with a small stall. He was lucky and got the contract.
Back then, the animals were slaughtered directly at the stall and roasted on a hand spit. The small stall then became a proper tent in 1925 and the slogan “Oldest and largest chicken roasting house” adorned the facade even then. They were also the first to have electricity and sold 9,000 chickens – as many as all other suppliers put together.

Today, Josef Schmidbauer is the fifth generation to run the family business. Grilling the delicious chicken on the “hot iron” is simply part of the experience.
