Munich Festivals: Oktoberfest 2016


Munich Festivals: The 183th Oktoberfest in 2016


In 2016, the Oktoberfest will start on Saturday, September 17th, at 12 o' clock and end on Monday, October 3rd, at 11.30 p.m.

Hours of opening: From Monday to Friday you get beer from 10.00 a.m. to 10.30 p.m., on Saturdays, Sundays and official holidays from 9.00 a.m. to 10.30 p.m.
The "Weinzelt" and the "Käfer Wies'n-Schänke", however, close at 1.00 a.m. and you can get your last beer at 0.15 a.m.

One liter of beer will probably cost more than 10 Euro this year.

As the 200th anniversary of the Oktoberfest in 2010 was so successful, the historical Wies'n will take place again in 2015 in a particular area of the Theresienwiese.
