Howdy world travelers, and welcome to the ultimate guide to Oktoberfest!
Today we will be welcoming back the world-renowned festival after two whole years! Covid did a number to the world, but Germany is happy to announce the come-back of one of the biggest traditional Bavarian festivals of the year!
The first tapping is scheduled for noon on September 17, marking the official start of Oktoberfest. You shouldn’t worry if you can’t make the opening ceremonies, however, because
this party isn’t over until October 3rd! There’s plenty of time to experience all the dancing, music, food, and of course beer, that Munich has to offer. The biggest concern we might have is figuring out how to get there, but that’s where we have you covered!
Perhaps the easiest, and most sustainable, way to Theresienwiese, is by utilizing Munich’s public transport system. According to the official Oktoberfest informational website, “during Oktoberfest S-Bahn, U-Bahn, busses and trams are more frequent than normal” which makes getting to the festival a little easier.
However, it is recommended that if you are traveling through the area with children during the festival, it’s best to take the U-Bahn stations, as they tend to be a little less crowded.
If Germany sounds a little too far away, don’t fret, as many places around the world celebrate Oktoberfest in their own way. Chances are, even a local pub near you is putting on a celebration. From the living room, to the tents of Germany “Prost!”. For those of us that missed our last post, you can find it here. Have a great day everyone, and of course…
