I had the opportunity to attend Oktoberfest in September 2019. While I do not drink a lot of beer, I did have good food while there. Also I was fascinated with the traditional clothing worn by the natives. I was happy to include this on...More

Think about the biggest state fair or carnival that you've even been to and you have some idea what the main grounds of the Theresienwiese are like. You could spend the entire day there and never set foot in one of the beer halls and...More

Although the food and drinks are overpriced, the October fest is a definite must on any persons bucket list. The atmosphere is great, the booze even better. The overall experience could be overwhelming for older people as finding seats and drinks could become problematic.

We were three girls, bought drindls and went to the Paulaner tent. We had to push our way for the table, found it quite racist sometimes. The beer was superb but food was cold, My advice is to eat your meal elsewhere and then come...More

This is a "bucket list" sort of item for beer drinkers. People take this very seriously. The tents get crowded, and the seats get claimed. Dancing on the chairs is OK, but not dancing on the tables. Really wanted to hear (do) the chicken dance,...More

One of the main reasons we went to Germany in the fall was so that we could experience Oktoberfest. Our travel agent found this gem via Viator Tours. The tour - Small-Group Munich city and Oktoberfest Tour, included a 90 minute tour of the main...More

we reserved seats at a table and best decision ever. I came in the 80's and had to fight for a seat, reserving them is a much more successful way to attend. the grounds were fun as always and the food amazing.

Sooooo crowded but so fun. Found a table and had us some beers. Tents fill up fast and tables are worth renting but if you’re brave/patient enough you could squeeze in there and find you a spot.

Hi. We stayed at Hotel One in Sendlinger Tor. It was very handy to the fest grounds, about a 20 min walk and right next to the UBahn. There were a lot of restaurants in the area as well as an Irish Pub that was kind of... More

Hi there, The dress code is very casual at Octoberfest. We wore jeans and runners. Most of the people that worked there wore runners so I would say totally acceptable. Just be aware security is very tight, no backpacks or... More
