  • Have been to several times, and the Theresienwiesen Oktoberfest is definitely a party Mecca, but gradually there so many people crammed into tents to be bad can move Prices on beer and mediocre food is pushed violently into the air, which means that the ordinary German family ill-afford to participate in their own people's Party. A liter (mass) beer can be bought for half the price on the various breweries in Munich, and the food is better and cheaper in the cozy ølhuse as HB, Augustiner or others. Munich is great, beer is great, but it is not on the Theresienwiese in get the best experience, it does in out on the streets and around the Center in Munich.

  • The Oktoberfest, the Oktoberfest is a must in Munich. Very large, a lot of people. At noon, there are already alcohol corpses. Here to have fun. We are open to Bavaria. Costume is a must. Unfortunately, the beer and the rides is very expensive.

  • Very fun place to visit! There is a lot to do and experience. The beer tents are fun and there are several places to get great food inside.
  • Site of the world famous Oktoberfest. Definitely worth adding to your bucket list. An event that will bring a smile to anyones face, and extra girth to your waist, what with the beer and wurst
  • Best place ever. The days of Oktoberfest is enough. Unfortunately it was raining a lot so didn't get to enjoy most of the grounds however the beer halls were great fun.
  • You have to have been there at least once! I love the atmosphere! So much fun and many ways to stay entertained and eat well 👍🏻
  • So many people,so much beer. Do not bring back packs as they are not allowed. Nothing bigger than 4L is allowed. Good luck getting into a tent and finding a table. Great atmosphere
