The Folk Singers'-Tent "Zur Schönheitskönigin"

After an extension in 2019, the tent has place for 1384 guests inside and 360 guests outside. The new "Schönheitskönigin" not only has a new wooden tent, but is a new type of beer tent. As opposed to the trachten- and folk-dance and brass-music-oriented "Traditionszent" and the less traditional contemporary folk music tent "Herzkasperl", the "Schönheitskönigin" is all about traditional music-hall songs. This is already indicated by the tent's name, which makes reference to Bally Prell's old song "I am the Schönheitskönigin of Schneizlreuth". So singers bring back the classic atmosphere of Munich folksinger halls 100 years ago. Guests are invited to sing along. Hofbräu beer is served in keferlohers. Apart from vegetarian and vegan dishes, the kitchen also offers traditional Munich food.
