The best U-Bahn Station Exit for Oktoberfest

Many Tourist take the Subway to Theresienwiese, when they are visiting the Oktoberfest in Munich.

But so do very, very many tourists! Theresienwiese U-Bahn Station is super crowded.

Personally, I take the Subway to Goetheplatz and exit the subway there.

From Goetheplatz it is only a couple of minutes walk to Theresienwiese.

If you ask me, take the subway to Goetheplatz and walk from there to Oktoberfest.

Have a great stay in munich!

Mariä Himmelfahrt August 15th is a holiday in munich

Dear Tourist,

Every year August 15th is the christian holiday Maria Himmelfahrt.

In Munich the stores are closed.

Mariä Himmelfahrt is a holiday in catholic communities.

In protestant it isn´t a holiday. For example in Nueremberg it is a regular working day.
