Hello everybody,

I’m renting my apartment during Oktoberfest.

  • - central apartment in Maxvorstadt (less than 1 min. walk to U-Bahn station, see Josephsplatz at google maps)
    - very close to the Oktoberfest (4 U-Bahn stations, less than 10 min. to the fest)
    - suitable for a group of max. 4 people
    - total area 35m2 (380 sq.

Oktoberfest / Wiesn: Room from Sept.17-27 for up to 6 people available!

I can offer a/two room/s during the Munich Oktoberfest. Room is furnished and has a large bed. Either two people can stay there or I have two more sleeping couches in the living room, each can fit 2 people (so up to six (6!) people can stay here). Bathroom/s will be shared (one bathroom with toilet and one additional bathroom with toilet). With the suburban train you are at the Oktoberfest within 15 minutes. During weekends the S-bahn almost goes all night long (so you save on taxi money).
