How about posting what hotels you are booked at and what price have you booked for 2010 so others can see what is the going rate for rooms.

Can the regulars give tips on the different groups of people that pick certain days to go. I have heard of the certain weekend dates attract the Italians, Swedes, etc.

Thanks,
Would love to spend a week in 2010 at the tents.

I always stay with a friend who lives in Munich so I can’t comment on the lodging.

In general it is advised to come during weekdays as the friday evening, saturday and sunday (except for evening) are overcrowded.

The middle weekend is ‘Italiener” weekend, so many Italians will come. Some are great fun, but some are also annoying. Also I learned this year that they don’t like it if you make sexual insults about their mother.

Air Berlin only $755 (tax & fees incl.) from JFK to MUC on 9/19/10… Bus. Class is only $2020 + fees… If I can swing it, I will fly Biz Class.. Either way, I am on that Airbus 330 – returning on the following Sun. (9/26) fo sho! Anyone want to hook-up before the O-Fest in Manhattan & “gameplan, please e-mail me at addr. listed below. I will take the early direct flight (using miles) from JAX to LGA, jump in a taxi at 8:30 a.m. or so on Sunday, 9/19 – walk-around the city for a couple of hours, then hit an Irish Pub about noon in mid-town.. Any suggestions?

The flight to Deutschland departs JFK at 1745 hrs, so we can get lit – up for about 3 hrs!

I will book a ticket from march 12 until march 14, just 99 euros all taxes included with Lufthansa (from Amsterdam).

I am sure it won’t be cold in the Hofbrauhaus!

@Jasmine:

perhaps it would not have been difficult to do a google search on ‘Munich Oktoberfest’ to answer these questions?

Anyway, it is the biggest beer-fest in the world held in Munich, Germany, from sept. 18th to Oktober 3rd , 2010. And each year for two weeks approx. the same time.

If I were you I would spend the spend your first few days outside of Munich, as the Oktoberfest is too crowded on weekends, and you won’t even get into the tents. So visit places like Neuschwanstein, Chiemsee, the Alpes, etc. Then hit the Wiesn for tuesday until thursday.

That’s great I have been debating between 20-21 or 23-24 (I live in Vienna so it is only a 4 hour train ride). I have alway missed path with you Gdrinkh2o so will stick with 20-21st even though some others will be at the end of the week. Are you up for a dinner reservation? How many are you?

I will not stay in ‘The Tent” but wish you good luck. I hear that it is only possible to have a good sleep there when completely drunk, but I guess that shouldn’t be a problem for an ozzie.

Some of the guys here incl. me will be there during 19-22 sept. so why not have a mass together Wink

I think ‘Luvbeers’ is trying to book a table for 20 or 21 sept. but without reservations it won’t be a problem to find a place. You just walk around and ask people to join their table. Only on saturday and sunday afternoon they tents will be closed probably if you don’t have a reservation.

That’s the way to do it! The Germans call this ‘ Wiesn-Bekanntschaft “ , friendship with people you meet at the Oktoberfest

I’m thinking about a trip to Germany with a stop in Munich for a night or two to attend Oktoberfest. Nothing is set in stone but I was wondering how far in advance I should look into booking a hostel? Is it already too late? A co-worker will be visiting family in Dresden and we talked about meeting up in Munich for a litre, or two or three.

Neither of us knows a damn thing about Oktoberfest. I assume one just picks a tent, finds an open space and enjoys drinks and food with those around him/her?
