As I do agree that there is a lot of tourists but there is a lot of locals as well which I think really brings a great crowd together. I went for a week in Sept 2014 and I will be... read more

Theresienwiese attracts thousands of tourists each year and it is grea to experience at least once. Make sure you have the traditional Bavarian clothing (dirndl for the ladies and lederhose for the man) - otherwise you will feel a little bit standing out compared to everyone else. If you are going with kids, it will be better to go early... More

We have been here during oktoberfest and had a fantastic time. We drank good beer on large tables and met all sorts of nice people from all over the world. The atmosphere is absolutely "gemutlich" There is also a large fun fair with various attractions.

A large open space in central Munich located about 1.91 km west from the city centre. It is famous as a site for the largest annual Beer Fest in the world - Oktoberfest. Also, beside beer, there is some historical monuments like Ruhmeshalle (Hall of Fame). Surrounding neighbourhood is full of well-preserved villas and residential buildings.

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.
