Have you always wanted to go to Oktoberfest in Germany but afraid of the crowds and craziness? Then Fruhlingsfest is for you! We had never heard of this Spring festival and found it while researching for our trip. Basically it’s Oktoberfest in the Spring. Held on the same festival grounds as Oktoberfest with food, rides, and beer tents. Although not... More

We visited here in December after the Oktoberfest had finished but during the Tollwood event. It was excellent with many craft stalls, beer tents, food halls, large tents with live music and a great atmosphere. We went back the next night. It was easy to get to on the u-bahn but we found it was only a 10-15 minute walk... More

Don't expect to be welcomes by the locals into their Beer Halls. Most of the Beer Halls cater to Special Events that are By Invitation with Foreign Tourists not that welcome. Go to one of the Surrounding smaller town that has a Brewery (they all do) and go to that Festival. You'll have a Much Better Time and save a... More

Love Beer? Love Ocktoberfest! Five million drunks tourists stumble around Muenchen over a couple of weeks as Mass hysteria erupts at the Theresienwiese!

This is such a sight to see! I do not care for beer, but the food was good and the sites even better. You can people watch for hours! The beer gardens are completely huge, animated, and packed. Not to mention all the outfits are interesting!

If you get a chance to go to Oktoberfest, which is held in this location along with other festivals, then you'll see how crazy this place is. Other festivals are also held there and they're fun to experience.

Went to a great flo market on the theresienwiese apparently the largest in Europe, also the same location as October fest the biggest beer festival in the world and toll wood in the winter a great spot for event if you catch the timing right well worth a look if your around Munich when any event is happening.

So Theresienweise is the ground where Oktoberfest is held (as well as other events during the year) so when nothing going on it's just a massive empty space with a huge statue. ....however when it's Oktoberfest it's brilliant - wasn't at all prepared for the scale of it all - massive. It was great fun - dress traditionally to fit... More

The known Frühlingsfest and Oktoberfest are commonly held in this place, and needless to say, the ambiance was amazing. Everyone you see around armed with (at least) one jug of beer, singing and dancing away in their dirndls and lederhosens! Extremely happy and lively atmosphere :-) I was here in Munich unplanned for Frühlingsfest, but this turned out to be... More

How can it be that this place isn't rated #1 in Munich's attractions? A must visit, at least once in a lifetime, even if you're not a beer fan. The drinks, the people, the rides, the food, the traditional costumes ... everything about this festival is amazing! And the atmosphere... no words can describe it... Don't miss out the early...
