Visited just before Oktoberfest (heartbreaking), but it was still amazing to walk around and check out all of the beer halls and rides. Definitely returning for the main event!

Went to the Oktoberfest at Theresienwiese in 1972 as a college student and and in 2007 when I took my son to Europe as a graduation gift. The grounds are amazing with all the beer tents from the six Munich breweries, the beer was great and the experience was totally awesome. We were in Munich for 4 nights, and planned... More

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
