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

Oktoberfest is my favourite time of year in Munich. This is a truly a once in a lifetime experience that I believe every person should experience in life. The vibe, the atmosphere, the people, the lederhosen and dirndle... all joint together in this massive party that just keeps getting better. Do yourself a favour and check out Oktoberfest - you...

After traveling through dozens of Christmas markets in Hungary, Austria and Germany, Tollwood was our favorite! Tollwood is the "international" Christmas market in Munich. It offers great food options in two food halls with many international food offerings - Greek, Indian, African, Thai, Vegan, etc. The indoor pavilions are full of booths with wares from all over the world -...

We visited in December when the site is called Tollwood. We thought it was the best Christmas market because of the surrounding food & music stalls. The music tent had some great bands where you can just sit, chill & drink beer whilst listening to live music.

What is there to say than that this is the most Bavarian experience ever. no other place in the world are so many drunk, jolly lederhosen bearing people gathered for three weeks of drinking, singning, eating and pissing. It can be quite overwhelming so be prepared for a good time

A winter festival that is a market in style with theatre tents alongside. Imagine a Christmas market but make this more of a hippy trendy festival and add theatre and you have it.

From Oktoberfest to Tollwood... only fun things happen in Theresienwiese. :) I have been to both many times and I always enjoy myself. Except for the lost and found at Oktoberfest... I had my bag stolen from me by a man that I could not chase in the crowds. When I went to the lost & found they had my... More
