Zurich Oktoberfest at Bauschänzli & Züri-Wiesn HB

There are many places to celebrate Oktoberfest, but there are two main ones which are very well know. Züri-Wiesn is located at the main train station and Bauschänzli is situated on the little island next to the Frauenbadi at the top of the Limmat.

Each year the “Züri-Wiesn” Oktoberfest begins first at the main station and then there is a little overlap whilst they are both running.  Bauschänzli then continues until the beginning of November. Both venues have plenty of food, fun, music and of course, beer, to ensure you have a great time. It’s a great opportunity to get dressed up in Dirndl and Lederhosen but it’s not compulsory!

Züri-Wiesn Oktoberfest

2018 Dates: 18th September – 12th October

You can’t miss Züri Wiesn if you travel through Zurich main station as it all takes place in a massive beer tent in the middle of the main station hall. As well as beer there are lots of typical Bavarian food specialities and even some vegetarian options too. You don’t have to drink beer but it helps! It will be opened this year by TV presenter Marco Fritsche on 18th September. And if you happen to be going on 25th September you will find that DJ Antoine will be performing live on that evening.

Bauschänzli gets booked months in advance. Again there are lots of Bavarian specialties, live music and a whole lot of fun.
