Probably the most difficult aspect of preparing for your trip will be trying to find an available accommodation for Oktoberfest, as they go fast. Very fast. In Munich, cheap hotels fill up months ahead of time – and even these locations usually raise their prices during the final weeks of September.
Luckily, the city is fairly well-prepared for this,
and Oktoberfest hotels stretch long and bright across
the skyline. The Hotel Bavaria is a good choice, a side
street away from the main grounds of Theresienwiese.
The Bayernland Hotel is similarly located, and offers
parking spots for those traveling Germany by car –
and finding a place to stow your car during Oktoberfest
is like finding gold at the end of a rainbow.
If you don’t want to stay directly in downtown Munich, cheap hotels are a bit easier to find. Making use of the subway system is a good way to cut down on cost and also exponentially expands your range of Oktoberfest hotels. The Hotel Einhorn is just a stop away, and is one of the city’s more celebrated cheap vacation rentals.
Any accommodation for Oktoberfest is perfect, though, since you will be spending little time within the rooms. So just remember to book ahead and get ready to party into the small hours of night.
