Apart from being home to the magnificent, awesome, extraordinary and superb Oktoberfest beer heven, this place also hosts other interesting events like an alternative Christmas market in the winter. But nothing in this world beats the Oktoberfest, for sure.

If you want some "Oktoberfest" atmosphere with people all gather around, greeting and welcoming you in German (Bavarian). Come here once in your life and you will feel this atmosphere as well as we do every year. Beer, sausage, typical clothes, and good mood. (Be careful, 10 euros / beer this year, not less than this).

If you like to drink german beer and have a good time, this place is for you, but you need MUCH patience. Waiting to get into a beer hall, looking for a space at a table, both can be time consuming and frustrating. The park is still worth going to if you don't want to drink. There are so many... More

At some point in your life you must go to Oktoberfest in Munich!!! We had a great time - as did my in-laws!! We were here for three days at the end of an extended European trip. We are not big beer drinkers, but the experience was worth it!!

A party where everyone gets along. Good beer, good food, good new friends, and good times. We got there about an hour before it opened and walked right in. A couple at our table didn't wait at all; they walked up as the tent opened and found a seat immediately at our table. This was the 2nd day of Oktoberfest.

I reached Munich early so that I can visit the Chriskindl markts and especially Tollwood. The winter Tollwood at Thereseianwiese is always fun with lots of Gluewein and lovely food. A unique attraction this time was the 'EssZimmer', (food/eat room) which was exclusively vegetarian, a first for Tollwood.

During Oktoberfest, the fairgrounds are packed with people in traditional Bavarian dirndls and liederhosen, the beer is flowing voluminously, the fair rides are plentiful, and the crowds are thick. Despite the masses of people, the German police have the situation mostly under control. If you're college aged, go during the evenings, especially on weekends, for the most fun. If you're... More
