Do it. See it. Feel it. Go there! Enjoy the unbelievable "Oktoberfest" - or, as the Bavarians say: "Wies´n" :-) Translation for Wies´n is: meadows/lawn (= how it looks like in the summer, when there are a few days without assembling and disassembling of the enormous "Oktoberfest-Tents")

Theresienwiese is the place commonly known as the place of Oktoberfest (and not so well known the Springfest, too). And that's it. If you like to be there during the Oktoberfest it is a great place for you to party. Also the Winter-Tollwood is an event, which is located there each year in December. Outside events like Oktoberfest, Springfest and... More

Oktoberfest has both it's good and bad sides, but as long as you show up with the idea that you're going to have fun, you will. There is good beer, food, music, great people, but it's also overly commercialized with large crowds, awful drunks, and plenty of rude people. Here are a few tips to make your experience better: 1.... More

This is certainly a must see place during the Oktoberfest, last 2 weeks of September, but beware it is very busy. If you are in Munich early in September or in Early August you can still visit the site and see the beer tents and even get a beer if any side bars are still left over. Outside the Oktoberfest...

You say why would you do that! I say because it is the best party in the world! Yes it is set up the same every year but what makes it so special is who you meet and every year sitting at a different table enjoying life experiences of people from around the world, just wonderful!

We have always wanted to go to the Oktoberfest, but have been hesitant due to the crowds we have been warned about and the people peeing all over the place. Nothing could be further from the truth. The entire grounds are well organized ,patrolled and secure.The Beer Tents or Buildings were wonderful to visit, but if you want to really... More

My Munich friend brought me there. It was during Christmas and the atmosphere of the fest was very amazing. Most of them were local people who were gathering around, drinking local alcohol. And there were many tents, some of which offered snacks from all over the world. And the best tent for me was the one for crafts. Beautiful crafts... More

Theresienwiese is a open space situated not far from the Central Station in Munich, near a subway with the same name on lines 4 and 5. The place is also near metro station Poccistrasse and Goetheplatz. Theresienwiese is well-know for the Oktoberfest and also for summer and winter festival called Tollwood. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, nice buildings, nice... More

This huge field is the one that hosts major Octoberfest attractions. Also, Frühlingsfest, Cirque du Soleil and other popular attractions are found here seasonally. At all other times it remains free for running, riding bicycles, etc. You can check out the tiers of monument behind the statue of Bavaria with Lion, and also the statue itself... from the INSIDE!
