Hello Devsk

I live in Munich.
Make sure u pre book a hotel in Munich, before u come. During the October festival, the hotel prices go way up. I would advise, that u dont come, during the October fest, but if u do, book your hotel room now. They will soon be booked up. Also, hotel rooms cost way more than usual, during the Octorber festival.

If u are comming to Munich, u might as well spend some time, in the mountains, South of Munich, and then go to Italy.

Hello Devsk

What about this place. U can book online.
http://www.easypalace.com/
Make sure u click on the part, that says Oktober fest rates. They have put up their prices for the Oktober fest, so it costs more than the regular rates. Also, u can change the text to English, before u start. Just click on the British flag.

Another possible option for u would be to stay in another Bavarian town, and then just take a day trip to Munich, during the Oktober fest.

U can get a day train pass, to go all around Bavaria, for 5 adults and around 20 children, for around 25 Euros.

U can also get a Munich city public transport day pass, for the same number of persons, for around 11 Euros.

Hello again Devsk

Here is another place to stay, in Munich, which is open, until October 15th.
Maybe they do not put up their prices, for the Oktober fest, but I am not sure.

It is just a very big tent, where u would rent a bed. Not fancy, but very economical.

If u are planning to go to the Wiesn, u will have to book a table in advance. There will be no chance to get in there, if u just show up, without a reservation, during the Oktober fest. I dont know if a table can be booked online, or not.

The link for the tent accomodation, is

I forgot to include it, in my last post.

i have heard that you need to purchase tickets to go into some of the beer tents...well my friends in stuttgart tells me this, munich might be very different as it is a far larger beer festival.

Hi Oslaue,

you cant buy tickets to the Oktoberfest beertends. Make sure to go early enough to the tends. The tends open at 9 o clock in the morning and on weekends they somtimes close 1 or 2 hours later, because they are to crowded allready. During the week its better you. I really recommend you to go during the week, its much more pleasent.
