In 1810, you'd have been celebrating the wedding of Princess Theresa and Prince Ludwig at Theresienwiese. Today, you'll be celebrating the world-famous Oktoberfest. The 42 hectare (103.8 acre) park is in the Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt neighborhood. Here, you'll find historic city landmarks, such as St. Paul's church, the Bavaria statue, and the Esperantoplatz. If you come for the festival, you'll be in the company of 6 million other people. Hop on the Munich U-Bahn metro for easy access to the area, which has its own stop.

  • An ordinary large park with very empty space in the center and a small green border around the edges of the park. In fact, it can be described as a huge clean area for large-scale events. I got into preparation for such an event - Oktoberfest. When my wife and I walked from the hotel to the city center, we walked through this park and saw a huge number of pavilions under construction, fenced with mesh fences. Amazing measures and a great desire to get somehow on the festival itself.
  • Amazing experience during Oktoberfest. Grounds are so massive, but plenty of entertainment and attractions. Highly recommended.
