When is the best time to go to the Oktoberfest in Munich?Answer
Planning a trip to Munich (and Austria) next year and am would like to go to Oktoberfest for 2 days. Any suggestions on what is the best time to go to the Oktoberfest (during week, weekend, start of the festival, middle, end). Also is 2 days a good amount of time to spend at the festival? Planning to meet up with 2 of my german friends while I'm there.
end of eptember, actually. Although it's called Oktoberfest, it starts in the last week of that very month of September. But if you want to have a place to sit and drink in one of the Bierzelten (beer tents), then it's better you try at the end of the season. But the meadows are worth a visit anyway. Don't miss the Geisterbahn and the Riesenrad ("spooky trail" and "giant wheel"), and make sure you eat a "Steckerlfisch" (fried trout). The Achterbahn (roller coaster) however is not even worth a try.
Two days is pretty fine, and you should just try your luck on a late afternoon or early evening.
It starts on 22ndSeptember and goes on until 7th October.
It depends on your age and whether you are wanting a more authentic experience, or to just go get drunk.
Edit: Then go to the Concordia Club on a thursday, friday or saturday evening.
