Each October, millions of visitors and locals flock to a meadow just outside of Munich’s city centre to participate in the world’s largest folk festival. Head to this German destination between September 22 to October 7 this year to experience the supreme brews, eats and entertainment.

Where to Stay

Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski, conveniently located in Munich’s city centre, offers a welcoming and relaxing sanctuary after a busy day of Oktoberfest excitement. The Munich hotel has Junior, Deluxe Junior, Superior, Executive, Royal Ludwig and Presidential suites, exquisitely decorated and complete with ruby furniture. The hotel also houses a luxury spa: wind down with a massage or enjoy a Hyrdrofacial treatment in the state-of-the-art oasis.

Where to Dine

Start your day off right in one of Munich’s top breakfast spots.

Enjoy the artistic atmosphere of Bellevue, a restaurant that elevates traditional Bavarian interior design. The space’s plentiful natural light and coffee and breakfast selection will certainly energize you for a day of excitement and culture.

Experience the dynamic area as you head to Cotidiano for fresh pastries, bread, belgian waffles, fruit and more. The bakery and restaurant is open all day, but is an especially delicious option for your morning meal.
