OKTOBERFEST... WHAT'S THE DEAL?
A festival dedicated to dressing up like Hansel & Gretel and getting mashed. Sold 🍻
Oktoberfest has a split personality. Sure there’s a bit of a lads on tour vibe but this is also the world’s largest folk festival. That means good wholesome fun in the form of fairground rides and marching bands.
In fact most visitors are Bavarians or other Germans (85%), if you’re worried about louts steer clear of the Hofbräu tent - it’s always packed with rowdy tourists. Schottenhamel tent and Marstall tent are good bets.
Or sack off the frills and get stuck into the main event: drinking litre steins of sweet Bavarian beer 😍
Soak it up with giant pretzels, pork knuckles and thick meaty sausage.
* Reserve a table in a tent here especially if you’ve got a group.
* Bring cash, card isn’t accepted and the ATM queues are long ting.
* Dress up - you’ll find lederhosen (men) and dirndls (women) in shops across Munich.
