Octoberfest 2013 tickets

My partner and I will be in Munich around the 27th to 29th of September. He wants to go to Octoberfest. I understand that tickets are usually ordered in lots of 10 however this is obviously not viable for us. Can anybody advise if you can get tickets at this late stage for that weekend and if so how I can purchase a couple. Is there much risk in purchasing privately? Is just turning up an option? Any help would be much appreciated.

There are not ticket for Oktoberfest at all. Access is free.

You're mixing this up with table reservations. But you can only reserve complete tables. And you have to do this early in the year. Not all tables can be however reserved. The quota is set by the city. For the main floor of the tents this quota is between 2/3 on weekdays and zero on Sundays.

You'll be only served when seated. And seating for the unreserved tables is just on a first come first seated base.

.

Weekends are however really busy. Have a look on the Wiesn Barometer to get an idea

.

Just turning up is thus your only option anyway. And Oktoberfest is much more than just beer tents.

Thanks so much Abalada. I am happy that Octoberfest is so much more than beer tents - I don't even drink beer....things I do to make my fellow happy.
