In 1810, you'd have been celebrating the wedding of Princess Theresa and Prince Ludwig at Theresienwiese. Today, you'll be celebrating the world-famous Oktoberfest. The 42 hectare (103.8 acre) park is in the Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt neighborhood. Here, you'll find historic city landmarks, such as St. Paul's church, the Bavaria statue, and the Esperantoplatz. If you come for the festival, you'll be in the company of 6 million other people. Hop on the Munich U-Bahn metro for easy access to the area, which has its own stop.

  • Tourist information: say die Wiesn, not der Oktoberfest, otherwise you'll basically have "tourist" written across your forehead. Die Wiesn is really one of the most awesome parties I've ever visited. ...  more »
  • Then only if when visiting the Oktoberfest Oktoberfest is. The huge beer tents sin simply gigantic and everywhere plays the music. Then for big and small rides... The Oktoberfest at the Oktoberfest is a must... we're back :-)

  • Main Glade Oktoberfest-the sea of tents, marquees, attractions, people, beer, food, frankfurters, grilling, noise, DIN, GAUMONT, fun ....! Find very simply-a never-ending stream there goes the people. Main entrance-not to bring up. But be prepared for the fact that inside the main venues Oktoberfest inconceivable Stampede. There are also many around the beer tents and pavilions built and open in haste to the Octoberfest. So if you don't have a ticket in tents, beer drinking from the outside and then go walking inside. The dimensions of the unthinkable, it seems that until the end of the walk is impossible. We have never reached.

  • 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
