Oktoberfest - where to stay?

I am hoping to visit Oktoberfest in Munich this year and am wondering where to stay and organise accommodation. I have heard that 2 million people or more are expected?! So I guess accommodation is going to be hard to come by and expensive. Any advice or experience on booking ahead at this late stage? I am not averse to staying in a hovel but equally can probably afford luxury accommodation if it is available. Thanks for any help.


  • too late by now, i'd look for a town with a direct railway line

    Ok, can you recommend any towns in particular? I don't mind a bit of a commute, and it might be nice to avoid all the traffic.

    I'd recommend nearby town like Regensburg, Memmingen, and Ingolstadt.
