This bird moves the Wiesn: half a duck without side dishes costs 53 euros in the Ammer tent.

Whether this is appropriate or not - opinions differ widely.

Munich - appropriate or rip-off?

This dish heats things up at the Wiesn: half an organic duck costs a total of 53 euros in the traditional tent of the Ammer chicken and duck roastery at the Oktoberfest - and without a side dish!

After our newspaper reported yesterday about the bird for the high-flyer prize, a debate broke out: This duck is on everyone's lips...

The operators of the Ammer tent did not miss this either.

"Of course we understand that the topic is emotionally charged," says Managing Director Claudia Trott.

Especially against the background of generally rising prices.

She was still surprised by the partly critical response to organic ducks on the Internet: "I thought to myself that the issues of sustainability and animal welfare are much more widespread in society." Because organic and fair husbandry has its price, at Ammer lege been valued for a long time.

Ducks come from a family-run organic farm in Austria

The ducks for the tent all come from a family-run organic farm in Austria.

The people who normally come to the tent are often regular customers.

You are already familiar with the prices.

However: After the report, some visitors became even more curious about the organic duck and found out about the origin and ingredients on the phone.


Wiesn guest Markus Ostermair (44) also wanted to try the Ammer organic duck (albeit only the quarter variant for 26.50 euros) – he only followed the debate about the price marginally.

"When you go to the Wiesn, you know that everything costs a lot of money." The Oktoberfest is just not suitable for bargain hunters.

And he liked it (everything about Oktoberfest reservations).

"A brutal cheek" - "Everyone wants organic and animal welfare, but nobody wants to pay for it"

Some readers take a more critical view of this in letters and comments – opinions differ widely.

Richard Sterr calls the high price "a brutal cheek".

Of course, the Wiesn has never been something for the tight purse, but 7.20 euros for potato dumplings as a side dish alone: ​​That's "a completely different number," says Gräfelfinger.

He has never experienced such prices on the meadows - organic or not.

Angelika W. sees it similarly. But her criticism goes beyond the Ammer offer.

Above all, she found the comment by Wiesn boss Clemens Baumgärtner (CSU) on the 53-euro duck "arrogant": Baumgärtner told our newspaper that there were also many conventional goods in addition to organic offers, so that as many as possible the Wiesn can afford.

Angelika W., who was born in Munich, thinks that this no longer applies to everyone due to the general increase in prices: "In any case, my salary has not increased by 30 to 50 percent in the last two years of the pandemic."


Another reader finds: This "organic world" excludes part of society: "I think that's social explosives!" Others take a more relaxed view: "No one is forced to eat there," says one reader.

Some consider the high price to be justified.

"I don't think half a Wiesn duck is too expensive," says Klaus S. from Munich - especially when you consider that organic poultry, even straight from the farmer, is sometimes very expensive.

And Christine Buch thinks: "Everyone wants organic and animal welfare, but nobody wants to pay for it." She cannot understand whining about excessive prices.
