Hey this is gonna be a quick post but basically I will be in Munich during Oktoberfest getting blotto with the Germans (so much fun is this gonna be!!!) Anyway I just wanted to know if anyone was gonna be there while Im there? I will be in Munich the first week of Oktober so if you wanted to meet up, chat and drink( and if possible out drink them) then certainly let me know. I would love to be able to be there with someone I could really relate to...or for that matter anyone from this cool a$$ forum. Peace!!!!:) ;)

I could get creamed or at the very least crucified on a hockey stick for saying this, but the Germans will likely out- drink you when it comes to beer, although I wish you a Gold Medal and I hope you top them. Try filling up on bratwurst ( one or two on a bun ) before you start getting loaded- that will help. Hope your ' lodging ' is within staggering distance of wherever you are enjoying yourself. You are going to have one hell of a good time- guaranteed !!!
cheers, -kevin

You know what kezin, your probably 100% right about being out drunk by the Germans!!! But If I happen to beat them(wishful thinking, I know) I will prouldly stroll out of Germany with a nice gold medal!...not. However, just being there under those tents with all those cool people will be my gold medal and I won't ask for anything else!!! One more thing: thanks for the tip- I will certainly try out the world famous bratwurst-and the weiswurst too!!!

I think u may be right Kezin.
I read a report, that the Germans actually drink more per head, than the Irish.
That report was so astonishing that it was one of the main news headlines in Ireland, when it came out.
By the way Buscana, I think u may have to book a table, at the Wiessen. Usually people book a table, for their friends. I am not sure there will be a spare place, if u just walk in.
Also, if u have not yet booked accomodation, in Munich, try to do it now. Most Munich accomodation gets booked out for beer festival time, as early as May.

Haha! Yeah, I am planning to be in Munich for the Oktoberfest too.. but there doesn't seem to be space for one more backpacker... well, not when you search the net anyway...

Can anyone recommend a place or even know of any place that will at least accept reservations in Munich?!

As for outdrinking the Germans... er... well...

Hello Singularis:)

I think everyplace would be booked up by now, unless u are very lucky.
I recommend that u get a night train into Munich, then get a night train out the following night.
U could do this a few times during the Oktoberfest.

Hey everyone, it's me again. I just wanted to say that if you cannot find a place in Munich during Oktoberfest which you may not at this stage of the month, then you can do what I may do which is called" sleeping rough." I've read this from a book called 'cheap sleeps Europe'. Basically, you are allowed to sleep at the train station-police are aware- but you need to be up at 6 am and be prepared to have a rough night. But Im willing to simply because I want to go to Oktoberfest ... and I will even for one day . Here I come Oktoberfest!!!
