A Guide to Enjoying Oktoberfest
When it comes to famous annual events, Oktoberfest is easily one of the most renowned and acclaimed. Each year from mid-September to early October, roughly six million people from across the world congregate to Munich, Germany to experience the food, beer, and festivities that make up the heart of Bavarian culture. If you’re planning a trip to this year’s Oktoberfest, keep in mind some tips for making the most of your adventure, and consider chartering a private jet plane.
Plan Your Accommodations in Advance
As you can guess, Oktoberfest is a very busy time in Munich. As soon as you confirm that you’re going, plan your accommodations as soon as possible. The various hotels, rentals, and hostels tend to fill up quickly, especially those that are closest to Theresienwiese, the open grounds where the festival is held. This year’s Oktoberfest will take place September 17 to October 3, so book your calendar and get going.
Choose Your Tent (and Company) Wisely
The Oktoberfest grounds have 14 tents, which can host anywhere from 4,000 to 11,000 people at once. The atmosphere and mood of each tent is slightly different, with a unique touch in the ways of food, music, and décor. Get a feel for each tent and plop down in the one that best suits your style. While you’re there with friends, be prepared to make more! With so many people packed into the fun, it’s inevitable that you’ll leave with more friends than you came with.
Have Responsible Fun
When everyone thinks of Oktoberfest, they think of splurging on beers the size of a small dog and miles of bratwurst, and with good reason. However, it’s important to make sure that while you have the time of your life, you’re doing so responsibly. Practice the buddy system to make sure that you’re with someone you know and trust, especially when the beer starts flowing. Write down the address to your accommodations so you can always find your way back home, and pick a meeting spot for when you get separated from your group.
