What is the ‘Bayrisches Eck’?

Picture yourself and your friends in a cosy alpine guesthouse, way up high in the Bavarian Alps of southern Germany. Locals, friends and other groups wander in and soon it’s buzzing: the smell of delicious food, the laughter, the music, and a fabulous view over the surrounding countryside.

This is a corner of Bavaria, and at Oktoberfest Brisbane we have gone to great lengths to capture this atmosphere, the flavours, the cosiness and what Germans call ‘Gemütlichkeit’ in our Bavarian Corner, or ‘Bayrisches Eck‘ as the Germans would say (pronounced: By-rish-es Eck).

We transport this piece of Germany directly into our Oktoberfest tent at the Brisbane Showgrounds once a year, over two weekends in October.

Celebrate festively with friends

Just like Munich’s Oktoberfest, we have a raised podium area specially dedicated to our Bavarian VIP Table guests. But we go one step further and offer an experience and extras in our Bayrisches Eck that even Munich’s Oktoberfest guests won’t find anywhere.

  • Look around: Enjoy the best view above other areas within the tent, and the beautiful alpine view hanging behind. The tableware is imported from Germany, so you can’t get more authentic than that!
  • Bavarian banquet: Our impressive food platter of hot and cold delicacies, the Bavarian Brettl, is something that even Munich doesn’t have. Handcrafted especially for our tables, it creates a festive feast experience that is truly unique within Brisbane and beyond.
  • Service with a smile & a dance: Our wait staff also look the part, dressed in traditional Dirndls and Lederhosen, they look after your dining wishes and, if you’re lucky, you may even get them to twirl a Chicken Dance or two with you.
  • Wait, there’s more: Your own VIP amenities, ‘Bayrisches Eck’ Lebkuchenherzen (gingerbread hearts), custom branded swag (steins and coolers), made just for our Bavarian VIP Table guests. As well as free rides!

Brissy’s best Brettl

Serving up only the best of German Festival food has been a long-standing tradition at Oktoberfest Brisbane, but did you know we also have a real foodie’s highlight that you won’t find anywhere else in Brisbane? The famous ‘Bavarian Brettl’, found only at the Bavarian Corner, ‘Bayrisches Eck’, at Oktoberfest Brisbane.

Brezeln (pretzels) and Bratwurst, Schnitzels and Salad
Guests at their reserved Bavarian VIP Tables can savour hot and cold specialities on this impressive ‘Brettl’ (Bavarian for ‘small board’ or ‘platter’) which is anything BUT small.

The dining experience doesn’t stop here!

Exclusive to Bavarian VIP Tables are our friendly Dirndl and Lederhosen-clad staff, who will look after your orders, bring you a round of welcome drinks followed by our best specially-crafted German brews… and yes, they are included in the special Bavarian VIP package.

This special day at your Bavarian VIP Table is crowned with the perfect souvenir – ein Lebkuchenherz, made specially in Munich for our Bavarian Corner, Bayrisches Eck. It’s a decoration, a fashion accessory and a delicious biscuit all rolled into one – what a classic example of German ingenuity!

Friends, colleagues, corporate partners, social clubs and families can sit back, eat, drink and ‘Embrace their inner German’ in the ultimate Oktoberfest way!
