Oktoberfest Camping Accommodation

The draw of Munich's most famous event is amazing, but in order to enjoy the party to the fullest it is best to plan ahead when thinking about Oktoberfest camping accommodation.

Getting your motorhome safely and of course, efficiently, parked for the autumn event means more time for the stein and less worrying about driving home.

For Bavarian beer is best enjoyed on foot, by all means drive there, but finding a campsite well ahead of time is something well worth thinking about, if you have to pay for a hotel room during the festival be prepared to pay somewhat over the odds. By taking a mobile hotel with you, you'll be saving valuable money to spend on valuable beer, pigs' knuckle, bratwurst and of course sauerkraut - all fine Bavarian dishes designed to keep you on an even keel, rather than keeling over.

From an event that began in 1810 to celebrate Crown Prince Ludwig's, later to become King Ludwig I, marriage to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, there are many places set aside for those who wish to arrive in a motorhome, as well as the expected six million people who visit the two week festival in October.

This many visitors obviously puts a lot of strain on the local infrastructure, so it does make sense to take your own, the road system is brilliant and the organizational skills seen here are impeccable, even so it pays to plan ahead.

In case you're wondering some 70 hectorlitres of beer are consumed, half a million chickens and almost 150,000 pigs.

Ist good ja.
