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...

Come and enjoy, have fun and spend a lot of money, but please make a reservation in advance. Hate to see people from Australia coming to munich and have no space. Organize and have fun everybody.

Okotoberfest is something that a traveler should try to get to at least once in their life. The beer is great, the food is great, the entertainment is so much fun.

Absolutely loved Oktoberfest! What a way to celebrate!! Get in the spirit and dress in traditional dress of Lederhosen and Dirndls, watch where you walk because it is very crowded!!, and if you have children leave by around 3pm or the crowds will be too rambunctious.

Oktoberfest really wasn't what I had expected, sure there were loads of places to drink beer and lots of Lederhosen and Dirndls but I hadn't expected it to feel so similar to the Christmas markets just with better weather. Its something that is worth experiencing once but I wouldn't feel the need to travel back to Munich just for Oktoberfest... More

It had been 50 years since my husband's tour of duty in Germany and 50 years since his last Oktoberfest at the "fairgrounds". The "original" Oktoberfest as he remembered it, consisted of several huge beer tents on these fairgrounds and now he noted that it looked just like a United States country fair with lots of amusement rides, many food...
