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...

You won't find any other place in the world with such great beers, nice feeling in the fresh air and such a nice place to be with friends. A little bit hard to find a table in a tent, but once you have one, you can enjoy at 100%. Amazing

We were visiting the Transport Museum in late January. To get to it we had to cross the Theresienwiese from the direction of our hotel. All I can say is that it may be a hub of activity during the Oktoberfest but in late Winter it is very bleak, so wrap up well if you find yourself there at that... More

Apart from being home to the magnificent, awesome, extraordinary and superb Oktoberfest beer heven, this place also hosts other interesting events like an alternative Christmas market in the winter. But nothing in this world beats the Oktoberfest, for sure.

If you want some "Oktoberfest" atmosphere with people all gather around, greeting and welcoming you in German (Bavarian). Come here once in your life and you will feel this atmosphere as well as we do every year. Beer, sausage, typical clothes, and good mood. (Be careful, 10 euros / beer this year, not less than this).
