The Munich Oktoberfest

Hardly any other festival is as well known as the Oktoberfest or "Wiesn" in Munich. It has been held every year on the Theresienwiese since 1810. The Oktoberfest begins in mid-September and ends on the first weekend in October.

For the city of Munich, the Oktoberfest is an important source of income. Every year, hordes of tourists from all over the world come to Munich to experience the Oktoberfest with their own eyes. They leave a lot of money in the city.

Year after year there are new records, be it the total number of visitors or the amount of beer drunk. After the Oktoberfest was canceled in the last two years due to a pandemic, the largest folk festival in the world will finally take place again in 2022.

Insider tips for the Oktoberfest Munich

With so much hustle and bustle, things can easily get mixed up. To make your visit to the Oktoberfest a complete success, we have a few tips for you.

  • At the Oktoberfest, it is good manners to appear in a traditional costume outfit. Especially if you don't want to show yourself off as a tourist, you should definitely get a traditional costume outfit. For an authentic traditional costume, we recommend the Moser-Trachtenshop.
  • If you want a seat in the beer tent, you should definitely book one of the tickets above. Because otherwise you're guaranteed not to get a seat in the beer tent. Admission to the beer tents is blocked as soon as the tent is full.
  • If you're already at the Oktoberfest, we recommend visiting the "Oide Wiesn" right next door. It's not quite as busy here, and the atmosphere is great too!
  • The underground line U2 to "Theresienwiese" is often very crowded during the Wiesn. We, therefore, recommend that you take the S-Bahn to "Hackerbrücke". From there you simply walk along with the crowd.
  • For a great view of Munich and especially the Oktoberfest, we recommend a ride on the chain carousel!
  • For the best preparation for the Oktoberfest, we recommend the Oktoberfest playlist on Spotify. Nothing is guaranteed to get you in the party mood! Songs you should definitely be able to sing along to: "In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus", "Skandal im Sperrbezirk" and "Viva Colonia".
  • The beer at the Oktoberfest is brewed explicitly for this purpose and is therefore somewhat stronger. To last longer, we recommend starting with a Radler - 1 liter of beer can be a lot! But never order an Alsterwasser - no one in Munich really says that!
  • For the best Wiesn preparation, just watch Harry G's video. The video speaks for itself!
  • If you're drunk, be sure to avoid the famous "Kotzhügel" behind the Hobräu festival tent. Because right in front of the Bavaria, this is where those who have had one (or more) beers too many end up. And you really don't want to end up there!

Hotels

Especially during the Oktoberfest, hotels and holiday flats in Munich are booked out very early. In addition, the prices for short-term bookings often rise immeasurably. That's why we advise you to book your hotel near the Oktoberfest as early as possible. You can find the best hotels near the Oktoberfest right here:

Traditional costume

If you want to go to the Oktoberfest, you should definitely buy a traditional costume. For men, this means coming in a lederhosen and a checked traditional shirt, while women attend the folk festival in dirndls.

Locally, there are numerous shops where you can buy the appropriate Trachten clothing. But why buy when the festival is already in full swing and the shops are even raising their prices? Instead, you can order your traditional costume clothes from the comfort of your couch at home.
