“Bucket List!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Oktoberfest in Munich is definitely a MUST! Add it to your bucket list! Good beer (of course), food and people! I loved everything about Oktoberfest, and probably had the best time of my life. It was pretty cool to meet people from other cultures who you didn't share the same language, but we all shared the same interest of drinking beer, laughing and having a blast. You can't beat that!

The tents are awesome! The day crowd is a bit more "relaxed" than the evening crowd, lol. We spent majority of our time at the Hippodrom and Hofbräu tent. Definitely, check out the Cafe Kaiserschmarnn tent if you have a sweet tooth.

Food... OMG! Let's just say, I was a kid in the candy store. Yes, it's fair food, but it's just different. I had french fries with mayo (never had that before, now I'm hooked), the rotisserie chicken, fish on a stick (literally fish on a stick), apple strudel with some vanilla creme sauce, and all the sausage you could ever want (no pun intended).

Just go! I don't know what else I can say, have fun!!!

“Outstanding Midway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

As far as I know the main attraction here is the Oktoberfest! I was completely unprepared for the overall festive atmosphere. It was a big amusement park and fair but it was much more fun, clean, and safe than I would have expected. I went with 7 other adult guys for Oktoberfest and had a blast.

“Very good in December for variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Great festival to go to in December, lots of different food stands and places to eat traditional German and Swiss food. Really had a great time here, especially at the markets. So much creativity and variety in the hand-crafted merchandise here.
