An empty square. Nothing to see. Not worth to visit. Strange that this mentioned on TripAdvisor. Please rate Oktoberfest, not the square.

The area is totally empty unless you go during event weeks. That is a giant parking lot that gets in party mode for Oktoberfest, Fruhlingfest, Tollwood, and such. If you make it there for the non-party weeks, it is ghost town.

I have been 3 times for Oktoberfest and absolutely love it! So much to see and I love every second. Love all the tents and usually end up at Paulaner and/or Hippodrome...and have to do the Franziskaner outdoor beer garden..oh and the bar that is like an old carousel. A must is the Ferris Wheel also, then have to go... More

It is still an interesting place to visit. Stand at the bottom of the statue 'Bavaria' and take a few snaps. Come back in September for the O'fest and you'll have stories forever.

OMG! We were here for Oktoberfest and it was soooo much fun! Nearly everyone is dressed in traditional outfits, the crowd is absolutely enormous, yet everyone is so friendly - and with the amount of beer being consumed no one was unruly. The beer tents are packed and if you wish to sit inside them after 5pm you need to... More

One of life's must-dos. I recommend that you hire a traditional Bavarian dress and get into the mood. It is such a great mix of friendly local & international visitors. There is something for everyone. When we entered we saw on our right, the circus-themed Hippodrome, and were dazzled. Most of our time was spent in the Haufbrau tent. We... More

As a big beer lover, this had for many years been a great desire to visit. We stayed in Munich for 4 nights and visited the festival every day if I remember correctly. Tried many tents at opening time around 10:00 in the morning. A few hours later there were hardly any tables or seats left. Met many new friends.... More

The bronze statue of Theresa holding a wreath high is larger than it first appears, as one can actually enter the statue and climb up into the inside of Theresa's head and look out of two small windows onto the huge festival site where Octoberfest and other events take place!
