#5 of 14 in Parks in Munich
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.

    Even if just not fixed on the Meadow takes place, a visit is worthwhile, notably to identify the dimensions. But the construction of the "tents" – they are actually large timber halls – is interesting

    The Theresienwiese is to look only to the Oktoberfest. Otherwise, it is an unsightly dirt desert in the middle of the city. Then only suitable for sports or leisure activities, where large areas of asphalt needed

    Visited here during Oktoberfest 2016. I was shocked at how large the place was and how many "tents" we could go have beer in. There are amusement park rides for everyone and lots to see for the young ...  more »

  • Went for biggest flea Market sale... Great place to hang out and for Jogging or playing over a weekend... October festival will happen here...
  • One of my favourite place in Munich to walk around when the weather is nice. There are football/soccer goals present, basketball hoops and a skateboard park to use as well. I have also joined random people playing Frisbee, American football and cricket. And it takes a whole new personality when Oktoberfest or Tollwood is in town.
  • A fine place for a fair. Basically a huge open ground. half-paved.
  • This place is with friends (if its good weather) a perfect spot to chill and having fun :)
  • Once in a lifetime experience. Love meeting people from all over the world.
