PLACE TO REST: Find your Oktoberfest bed
before prices really start to skyrocket.
OKTOBERFEST BEDS: Looking for a bed for the Munich Oktoberfest?
Munich hotels and hostels always jack up their prices as Oktoberfest nears, often to up to three or four times what they usually charge for their rooms.
You can get around this (to some dregee anyway) by booking as far ahead as you can.
I’ve done my fair share of travelling over the past 10 years or so and I know from experience that it pays to book ahead.
When there’s a big event like Oktoberfest happening in a city, it’s pretty much essential.
Compare hotels here with Destination Munich's room booker. It's linked in to Priceline.com and booking.com, so the best prices are pretty much guaranteed.
You can check it for yourself by typing your destination (be it Munich or anywhere else on the planet) and travel dates in the box to the right.
Good luck finding that perfect room for the Oktoberfest!
Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.
Until it does, please consider buying Destination Munich and Bavaria, the grooviest, most informative guide on the market :-)
It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
