The world's most iconic beer festival
Oktoberfest is the world's most famous beer festival, held in Munich, Germany. One of the world's largest beer-centric congregations, Oktoberfest attracts thousands of people from across the continent to Munich, with the intention of celebrating Bavaria's historic culture whilst enjoying flagons of the region's finest beers.
Beer tents aside - ranging from small festivities to larger scale 8000 people capacities - the live music, funfair, parades, and traditional German cuisines make the entire city of Munich the world's biggest party for a few weeks each Autumn.
Remember to pack that lederhosen and dirndl!
The 2019 lineup will be announced closer to the festival.
Munich hosts beer tents, fairs and markets galore, as Oktoberfest sprawls across the city centre and transforms it into an urban festival like no other.

BY PLANE: Airport Franz-Josef-Strauss is just 20km north of Munich. From the airport, you can reach the city centre by either taking train lines S1 or S8, or the Lufthansa Airport Bus which will drop you at Munich central station. Both journeys should take around 45 minutes.
BY TRAIN: Munich Central Train Station, or Hauptbahnhof, is easily accessible from the rest of Germany and also neighbouring European countries.
Oktoberfest welcomes people of all ages, with some days dubbed "family days", offering cheaper fares on the amusement rides. Those under 18 will not be served alcohol.
