A few tips on finding the best room for your budget
NEED A BED? There's no need to sleep at Munich Train Station (like these
girls who were part of a Deutsche Bahn promotion of overnight trains).
See below for accommodation Munich options.
You can cut costs by staying outside Munich during Oktoberfest. Though you'll have to pay a bit extra to commute in and out you'll end up saving a bunch on "festival surcharges" heaped on by the Munich hotels.
Smaller cities less than an hour away from central Munich by train include Augsburg, Landsberg and Freising. It's even possible to do Oktoberfest as a day-trip from Salzburg in Austria, it's about two hours away by train.

Camping is another econmical means to visit Munich, and this way
you get to enjoy the city's green spaces at the same time.
Some sites don't require you to bring a tent (they have their own for rent) and there is even a special site set up just for Oktoberfest.
Most also have space for caravans and campervans.
