Oktoberfest next weekend

Am thinking of heading to Munich to Oktoberfest not this weekend, but next. It is the last weekend of Oktoberfest, and am thinking of meeting up with some friends who will likely be there. Anyone have an interest in joining me for a trip up to Munich via train, or any advice about the festival in general?

Quick advice

If you don't have a table booked - get there early to get a table because those tents will be full by 9am

Re: Oktoberfest next weekend

I am also going.....i was planning to drive over on sunday and meet some friends Monday, Tuesday and then drive back wednesday.....might be able to go for the whole weekend...when were you thinking of going, Friday night?....and did you have any ideas for places to stay?

Not really bothered about driving if you want to get the train together?...(in fact I prefer the trains!)

I went about three years ago, and swore if by some strange circumstance I would ever go again, I would book a table and wear a Dirndl. Well, this year some friends from back home are coming, and I sent email/fax to every single tent and couldn't reserve it for just 3 people. And I don't have a Dirndl either.

So, like you said, I'm gonna start swilling beer at an incredibly sinful (maybe also sinnvoll) hour and pray for nice weather (last time I sat outside).
