Useful hints and tips for travelers in Germany
Munich is a great city full of hotels, guest houses, B & Bs, hostels, rooms and rental apartments, campsites, recreational vehicle parking. So choosing where to sleep during your stay for the Oktoberfest, only depends on two things: how you move and how much you want to spend.
For those who reach Munich by train or plane and then move on foot or by public transports, the best option is to find a hotel close enough to the Theresienwiese lawn, where the festival takes place, in the south-west of Munich. Around the area of the festival there are also several campsites where globetrotters can place their tents.
To get to the Oktoberfest from any part of the city, you must use the subway lines U4 and U5, so advice is to find a hotel near one of the stops on these lines. The Oktoberfest area is a fifteen minute walk from the Central Station of Munich, the Hauptbahnhof: around the station there are many budget hotels available for tourists; however, if you are getting to Munich by car, keep in mind that it is difficult to find a parking space in this area.
The only word of advice is thus to book in advance, because the city in these days is filled with hundreds of thousands of people from all over Europe.
