Theresienwiese Tours

Theresienwiese
Oktoberfest is possibly the world’s most famous beer festival, taking place in fall in Munich, Germany. Around one million partygoers pour into the city between mid-September and the first Sunday in October for 2.5 weeks of serious carousing and drinking; the epicenter of the merrymaking is Theresienwiese (‘Wiesn’ for short) festival ground just to the west of the Altstadt (Old Town). Here local Bavarian breweries sponsor 14 gaily decorated tents – each accommodating up to 6,000 beery revelers – with their own theme and local beer to sample in one-liter (2.2-pint) glass steins. As the hours pass by, the vibe ramps up and singing and dancing become the order of the day.

But Oktoberfest is not just for drinkers; there are fairgrounds for kids, costumed parades through the streets, an abundance of Bavarian folk costumes – dirndl skirts and leather shorts – to be admired, brass-band concerts and horse-and-trap rides. There’s plenty of food on offer to soak up the alcohol, from traditional Bavarian bratwurst to venison and seafood – the steckerlfisch (fish on a stick) is a specialty of the region – as well as delicious patisseries.

Although Oktoberfest is the biggest event at Wiesn, other festivals are held here. Frühlingsfest (Spring Festival) is a practice run for Oktoberfest running from mid-April to early May, while the Tollwood winter festival sees the appearance of one of the world’s biggest Christmas markets.

Practical Info

Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt, Munich. To be sure of a seat, get to Wiesn early – the gates open at 10am – to claim a table. Munich gets congested during Oktoberfest so don’t consider driving to the venue. Walk from the Altstadt (Old Town) or take the U-Bahn Line 6 to Poccistrasse, which runs every ten minutes. 
Address: Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt, Munich, Germany

There’s nothing quite like the Oktoberfest! It’s the world’s largest beer and folk festival and you have to experience it to believe it.

Then we’ll go inside one of the massive beer tents where we have a table reserved for our group. A couple liters of beer and plate of food (generally a half chicken, the typical Oktoberfest meal) is included! As with all our tours the group size is small – max 10 people – so you’ll get the personalized attention you desire. Our guides, all native English-speakers, have been going to the Oktoberfest for years and not only know how to make the most fun out of the event, but also are masters of group chemistry to ensure everyone has a fantastic time.
