Why locals love it

It is the biggest festival on earth. Around 6 million people drink around 6 million liters of beer in only about 2 weeks. It is also the biggest meat market in Germany - both eating- and dating-wise. And everything takes place on this ground.

Why you should visit it

Admittedly, if there is no event taking place at the time of your visit, this festival ground doesn't look like much. But there is always the chance that there is something happening. In summer sometimes there are also flea markets. And yeah, there is Oktoberfest as well. And if not, just head to the big statue called "Bavaria".

Special tip

During the construction of the Oktoberfest tents you can get a really cheap lunch in the canteens for the construction workers.

To skate, try a new roller blade or when we have Oktoberfest is a nice place, but the rest of the year this is just a empty area with some nice museums around and the statue Bavaria with the personalities from the city in a monument behind her.

Hate to break it to you,but i was born in munich and lived here all my live, plus about 500m away from the festive ground for the last 15 years. There‘s absolutely next to nothing going on except the 2 weeks of octoberfest, which is the main target for most tourists that come to this beautiful city each year. Yeah there‘s the bavaria and sometimes a flea market, but nothing extraordinary, so knock yourself out, but dont be dissapointed, if your high expectations wont be fullfilled.
