Where is the Oktoberfest in Munich?

The Oktoberfest takes place every year on the largest fairground in Munich, the Theresienwiese. It is adorned, or rather overlooked, by the bronze, 18-metre-high Bavaria statue, on which steps you can perfectly enjoy a break from the hustle of the Oktoberfest. The fairground, where also the Spring Festival or the Winter Tollwood take place at other times of the year, is located quite centrally in Munich, slightly southwest of the city centre. For navigation or the online map, we recommend entering “Theresienwiese” or “Bavariaring”. However, it is better to take the public transport. The nearest underground stations are “Theresienwiese”, “Goetheplatz” and “Schwanthalerhöhe”; the S-Bahn station from which you can walk to Oktoberfest quickest is “Hackerbrücke”.
