Munich Oktoberfest: This is how much the Oktoberfest waitresses earn in two weeks
The waitresses at Oktoberfest work hard. During the Oktoberfest period they don’t have a day off and work up to 15 hours a day, often taking over 20,000 steps. The waiters are also well paid: they earn “a high four-digit amount,” a waitress revealed to tz.de last year.

For many of the Oktoberfest employees, the work is very attractive simply because of the good atmosphere – regardless of the pay. “What I like is that the whole world comes together here, especially at the Hofbräu, and that everyone just wants to have fun,” said another waitress in a recent ZDF documentary.
