  • The Theresienwiese, named after Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, married to King Ludwig the First, can look back on more than 200 years of history. Initially, horse races and agricultural events took place on the meadow, which are considered the cradle of today's Oktoberfest. Particularly striking are the statue of Bavaria in front of the Hall of Fame and the Church of St. Paul. In addition to the Oktoberfest, other events, for example from the show or festival bussiness, take place. The Theresienwiese is connected to the Munich Underground network and is therefore easy to reach.

  • It's about 15 minutes' walk from Munich Central Station. It is the first station when riding no. 4 or 5 of the U-bahn. It is famous for the oktoberfest, the world's largest beer festival, from the beginning of September to the beginning of October every year. Thousands of huge tents are lined up, and tents everywhere are packed. All the mugs are 1 liter, and the alcohol content seems to be higher than the usual beer, but I feel that I can drink as much as I want because it is connected to the surroundings. Well, it's a huge adult amusement park.

  • The Oktoberfest takes place here in elaborately constructed festival halls and mass tents. If there is nothing going on there, the meadow is really a kind of meadow, a bright green carpet.

  • An ordinary large park with very empty space in the center and a small green border around the edges of the park. In fact, it can be described as a huge clean area for large-scale events. I got into preparation for such an event - Oktoberfest. When my wife and I walked from the hotel to the city center, we walked through this park and saw a huge number of pavilions under construction, fenced with mesh fences. Amazing measures and a great desire to get somehow on the festival itself.
  • Amazing experience during Oktoberfest. Grounds are so massive, but plenty of entertainment and attractions. Highly recommended.
  • It was a blessing in disguise as we happen to be in Munich during the Mini Oktoberfest. This was the place to be if interested in local food and culture. A true experience of Bavarian style. The people were amazingly warm and cordial. The traditional combination of Augustiner beer with Mackerel and Pretzels was too good. Enjoyed the music the dance and returned to our hotel by midnight, all walking. No security issues. 5 Stars to Munich and it's people.
  • I loved this place, my only issue is I was asked for my passport and visa by the security guard, however I was with a colleague of mine (who is white) and they didn't ask for hers.
  • It's the ground for the Munich Oktoberfest where people from all walks of life comes in to catch fun
