The Oktoberfest runs from Sept 21st – October 6th, 2019
There are the bizarre moments making up for the downsides. Like the guest we only saw wearing a helmet (“to avoid injuries when passing out”) or the guy wearing a zebra costume for breakfast. I asked him where he got that one from, to which he replied: “I don’t remember, I woke up in it”. Or the guy who returned at 3am with nothing but his underpants (he couldn’t tell how that happened, but we know it). We have seen it all.
How to book for Oktoberfest
Beds at wombat’s will be available from April 1st. So everybody gets a fair chance to book a bed at the lowest possible rate.
You can sign up for a reminder e-mail here. We’ll send an e-mail roughly a week in advance and another one just an hour before we update our availability. Just enough time for you to get a cup of coffee and wait for the best deal.

Book your transport early and compare prices thoroughly. Also consider smaller Airports around Munich, that might have cheaper fares. Check for Memmingen, Innsbruck and Salzburg, they’re all within a 2 hour train ride range around Munich. On kiwi.com you can include multiple Airports in your flight search.
While Bus companies, such as flixbus.de go up with their prices significantly during Oktoberfest, Deutsche Bahn Trains stay more or less as expensive as they are all year long 😉
Busses and trains drop you off very conveniently at the Main train station in Munich’s city center and not even 5 minutes away from wombat’s.
