One item for everyone's bucket list, go once in your lifetime just to get the experience, 7.5 million people every years can't all be wrong. Despite popular belief the Oktoberfest is not in Oktober bout the last 2 weeks of September (normally). The weekends can be a nightmare to get into the beer tents but there are plenty of beer...

The Wiese is where the world- reknown Oktoberfest takes place, reason enough for some fame. But there are many other occasions which are also staged there. In between it's desolate. A GREAT tourist tip: in July and August, while they are building up the Oktoberfest, they have temporary Kantine for the workers. You can (usually) go and have a beer... More

Hey everybody, this review has just one point cause most of the people will read it this way. The Theresienwiese is just a big empty place, without plants or any live. From end of September to the first days of October there is the Oktoberfest, than it's very crowdy, noisy and expensive. Please don't accept anything while the rest of... More

I was only here during Octoberfest so I can't comment on what it's like the rest of the year, but it has everything. Rides, carnivals, beer, tents, food, etc. Spent an entire day here and would go back again in a heartbeat.

Munich's historic grounds host festivals including the giant tents and fair of Oktoberfest. The first Oktoberfest took place in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Bavaria’s Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese Charlotte Luise. Munich’s citizens were invited to partake in the celebration. Oktoberfest is an experience worth each visit; I wish to return again not just for the German... More

The Hoffbrau Haus is a "must do" in Munich, though it is very touristy, there is so much history involved with the city and the Hoffbrau family and their beer.. They usually have live Bavarian music (don't sit too close if you were hoping to hold a conversation with people at your table). There is also an outdoor beer garden... More

We visited the Freulingsfest tents and had a great meal and beer, then had fun on the rides. We also climbed the Bavaria statue. It's a huge open area where Oktoberfest takes place in the fall and only about half that area is filled by the Spring fest we attended. But it was still a great time. Theresienwiese means Theresa's... More

Quite the experience! Great food and drink. Lots of rides and games. Wasn't able to get into any of the big beer halls, but nonetheless was very enjoyable.

This year will be our third consecutive year visiting the Theresienwiese for Oktobferfest, and it is just spectacular! Its so much fun, very welcoming and even if youre not a beer lover, you will most definatley have a taste for it when you leave! Market stalls, beer tents, food, and a fairground, and don't forget the traditional Bavarian outfits! An... More
