Oktoberfest: Places to stay for those who would like to save money
The Tent München is a summer hostel which offers sleeping accommodation for a very low price. Visitors can spend the night, for example, in the so-called ground tent which consists of a mattress, a blanket and a floor spot in the large communal tent. If that is too rudimentary, you can choose between the bunk bed, a group tent (up to 15 people), or your own tent.
Prices for Oktoberfest: between 15 euros (floor spot) and 25 euros (bed tent) per night

Oktoberfest: Places to stay for those who like camping sites
The camping site München-Thalkirchen is the most favorite among Oktoberfest visitors. This is partly due to the phenomenal location right on Isar river and only a short walk away from the open air bath Maria Einsiedel. On the other hand, nothing can beat the travel to Oktoberfest by public transport – taking the subway you'll be right outside the Oktoberfest tents just in 10 minutes! The only downside to this dream place: reservations are not possible. So, arriving in time is definitely a must!
