I am travelling to Europe from Australia and am planning to pass through Munich, arriving for 5 days from the 20th of September until the 25th. The sole reason for traveling to Munich is for Oktoberfest.
I am having difficulty finding suitable accommodation. Firstly I ask, is the busiest weekend the first? Am i likely to find more accomodation towards the last half of the festival, and if I do stay in the last half of the festival do I miss out on anything, or is it the same atmosphere from start to finish? My budget is $100-150 AUD per person per night and am travelling with a buddy, so would need two double beds or a two bedroom apartment.
What options are there close to the festival?
Thanks very much for your help.
