During the weekdays you will have no problems getting into the tents as long as you enter not too late in the afternoon. You don’t need reservations and you can get them only for groups of 10 persons. Anyway, most is booked by now except for the time slots when reservations are not needed anyway.

You can eat Oktoberfest classics like wiesn hendl and haxen in the tents, or in beerhalls & gartens thru the city. If you are in for more nightlife after they kick you out of the tents at 10.30PM try the area called Kultfabrik:

Most of us afterwards go to the Cafe Camera, Schwanthalerstr. 88 as it’s in stumbling distance of the fest.

There is another thread asking similar questions. One thing I suggest for Munich is to JUST walk and explore. The city will be PACKED with visitors at that time. Some of the best restaurants and bars are well off the beaten path and they always make for a good story. Get up super early and line up for the tents, go to the gardens in the afternoon. If you are still functioning in the evening, follow the masses to the multitude of night spots to venture into.

There is this one restaurant Kartoffelhaus, I remember from my first time there— you got to love potatoes. Excellent food and nice atmosphere.

HAVE fun, I am envious!
