  • Great location which offers throughout the year various events. The highlights however are the annual Oktoberfest!

  • People, there a misunderstanding when you apparently. Let please tell you: the "Theresienwiese" is not noisy, expensive and crowded. The Theresienwiese is a huge open area with grass and tarmac surface, almost throughout the year which the walking costs nothing. On a few weeks in the year there are events here like the Tollwoodfestival or end of September just the world-famous Oktoberfest, Munich also "Wiesn" call. Thus the 16tägige Beer Festival is meant but then goes back to a wedding with horse racing. But the Theresienwiese itself is only the venue, so to speak, reason and soil.

  • It's hardly to promote this originally Royal Wedding: summer utcabáljára founded a little deserted, but then we go back to the autumn!

  • 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
