The Marstall, a court riding-school built by Leo von Klenze, was a meeting-point for aristocratic equestrians in 19th-century Munich. And horses also play a central role at the Munich Oktoberfest. On 16 October 1810, a horse race was held on Theresienwiese meadow in honour of the newly married Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen; this event was the precursor of today's Oktoberfest.
The Marstall tent pays homage to the equestrian roots of the Oktoberfest. Horse motifs can be found everywhere; the entrance is marked by a carriage with a team of four horses, and the interior is decorated with a host of magnificent wooden horses from days gone by. The showpiece of our tent is the musicians' stage in the form of a carousel.
The Able family, Sabine and Siegfried with their daughters Verena and Vanessa - hospitality, quality and high-class service are paramount.

In addition to several outlets in Munich, they have spent six years operating the Kalbs Kuchl tent at the Munich Oktoberfest, a well-known highlight of the festival offering a unique atmosphere and upscale menu.
