How to get to the Oktoberfest

Pin It

Oktoberfest takes place in the area called Theresienwiesen, just outside Munich Old Town.
Theresienwiese lies only 10 – 15 minutes walk from Munich Hauptbahnhof central station, so if you stay in a hotel near the station you may want to walk to the place: it’s very easy to find, you just need to follow the throngs of people dressed up in Bavarian dresses who march every day to the feast.
Walking is also helpful to get rid of the huge quantities of beer that you will assume.
We discourage visitors from getting to the place by car, as it is hard to find a parking place, car parks are expensive and streets are always very packed.

Alternatively, you can take the underground getting off at the stop Theresienwiese, just under the park of the Oktoberfest.
Finally, taxi are available, even if it is not easy to find one, especially at night, and taxi drivers are not very keen to accept drunken foreigners on their car.
