Opening Weekend and All That FollowsOktoberfest's Opening Weekend sets the scene for 16 days of Beerfest madness and is always the most popular weekend for the many Aussies, Kiwis and other tourists who converge on the city. If you're up for something big, then the opening weekend is definitely that!
The whole festival then continues every day and climaxes on the Closing Weekend with its emotional farewell to Oktoberfest on the first Sunday of October.
Getting to MunichFares to Munich during Oktoberfest quickly get expensive so your best bet is to make your booking early. Flights between London and Munich are operated by EasyJet, British Airways and Lufthansa. Lufthansa also connects Munich with many other cities in Europe.
Munich is linked to other European cities by train and coach - see Trainline, Deutsche Bahn, Eurolines or Flixbus for details.

Trains from each into Munich Hauptbahnhof are around €20 one way or around €50 for a group of 3-5 people - see Deutsche Bahn.

Saturday 21 September - Oktoberfest Opening CeremonyThis morning we head off together to the beerhalls bright and early in order to get the best possible position when the doors open. Today features the massive opening ceremony that kicks starts the whole festival, with the mayor tapping the first keg at midday. The atmosphere and anticipation in lead up to the midday opening is like nothing else.
After the beerhalls close, you can kick-on in town and celebrate with the locals, or make your way back to the campsite for a nightcap with your fellow travellers before calling it a night.
