Travel to Oktoberfest by PLANE
Flying into Oktoberfest can be a convenient and quick way to reach Munich. In addition, air travel can be more comfortable and enjoyable than driving or taking the train, especially for people who get carsick or claustrophobic. Finally, airlines often offer affordable fares during the fall season, making it a cost-effective way to visit Germany and enjoy the Oktoberfest festivities.
Flying seems to be the fastest means of transport to Oktoberfest, but you should not forget that you still have to travel from the airport to your campsite or hotel by public transport. In addition, flying is not very sustainable and you cannot take that much luggage with you.
Travel to Oktoberfest by CAR
Going to Oktoberfest by car can be a wonderful journey. A road trip with your best friends, bring lots of stuff and decide for yourself when you leave. Sounds ideal! It offers flexibility to plan your own schedule and pace. This allows you to explore the scenic routes and make detours to other destinations along the way. Having a car also provides a comfortable and convenient way to transport any necessary camping or festival gear. Plus, it ensures you don’t rely on public transportation or worry about public transportation schedules, which can often be limited during busy festival times.
But traveling by car does have a number of disadvantages. For example, you have to take toll and fuel costs into account, divide who drives when and drinking alcohol during the festival makes it unsafe to drive back. It can also be a hassle due to heavy traffic and limited parking options. More information about parking options can be found on the official Oktoberfest website.
Travel to Oktoberfest by BUS
Buses are a great option for getting to Oktoberfest. Traveling by bus is more comfortable than you think! Travel in luxury coaches instead of regular buses. Here you can sleep well on the way and drink a beer if you feel like it. Stow your belongings in the hold and sit next to your friends. You’ll travel with other Oktoberfest festival goers, so meet new friends in no time. Super cozy!
Traveling by bus is also sustainable and super cheap. In addition, we will drop you off in front of the entrance of the campsite, so that you do not have to walk long with your luggage.

Travel to Oktoberfest by TRAIN
The train is also a nice option for transport to Oktoberfest. It is cheaper and more sustainable than flying, but it does take a bit longer. In addition, you cannot go to Munich in one go, you have to change trains at least once. Which is not so convenient with all your luggage.
The train station is wonderfully located in the center, which makes it easy to travel to your campsite or hotel. Plan your trip well because the trains abroad can still run irregularly. Moreover, traveling by train is more environmentally friendly. Oktoberfest draws large crowds, and trains offer a convenient way to avoid traffic jams, handy!
