Reservation regulations

Data protection:

Your data will only be used for the intended purpose (reservation at Cafe Theres’). It will not be passed on to third parties.


Reservation reservation:

The receipt of your enquiry via email or through our portal only constitutes an enquiry, there is no entitlement to the reservation. Only an offer on our part and your acceptance of the reservation by activating the link leads to a binding reservation. If the link is not activated in due time, the reservation automatically expires.


Reservation conditions:

A reservation is valid subject to the respective approval of the City of Munich.
Each reservation is subject to a minimum purchase of € 49.00 per person. After settlement of the invoice, a payment confirmation will be sent by email and the amount will be credited to your individual customer account held with us. The reservation is basically non-transferable and valid only on the issued reservation day. The reservation credit can only be deducted for the specified date and time. The payment confirmation serves as proof and is valid as confirmation for your reservation. Remaining amounts or unredeemed vouchers will be refunded by us after the Oktoberfest in the period from 04.10.2023 – 31.12.2023 or the unredeemed vouchers can be redeemed at Gasthaus Ayinger am Rotkreuzplatz.

Any remaining amounts during the reservation are to be paid in cash, or by EC or credit card.

Please note that a cancellation can only be made per entire table.


Number of participants:

Should fewer persons appear on the day of reservation than have paid in advance, no refund of the minimum consumption for these persons will be made. The client has no right to claim that an event can be held for the increased number of participants even if the number of participants is increased. We can point out to the client that the event can only be held for the originally notified number of participants without this entitling the client to cancellation or withdrawal.


Resignation of Cafe Theres’:

The reservation can be cancelled for factually justified reasons, especially if:

  • force majeure or other obstacles to performance for which we are not responsible, such as official cancellation or early termination of the Oktoberfest, which cannot be overcome by reasonable efforts on the part of Cafe Theres’, make it impossible to fulfil the contract.
  • despite existing agreements with suppliers of Cafe Theres’, we do not receive the necessary materials for the performance of the service in time.

Should one of these cases occur, we will immediately inform you about the unavailability or our withdrawal from the contract and refund the invoice amount. The client shall have no further claims. The burden of proof that we are responsible for a breach of duty with the procurement of the supplies lies with the client.

In the event that the Oktoberfest 2023 does not take place (cancellation by the City of Munich before the start of the festival), 100% of the reservation deposits (for minimum consumption) will be refunded. Shipping and handling costs will not be refunded.
