Any1 going to Oktoberfest 2011?

26 Apr 2011 Tania01 said


Hi all, I am going on the 5 day Oktoberfest from 22nd September. I have read on the official Oktoberfest page that you need to book seatings in the tents itself, otherwise you will not be able to get into the tents as they will be fully booked. Has anyone booked yet? There is a minimum reservation of 10seats if you want to book. Anyone want to book with me, as we are only 2 people going? I have contacted some of the tents, but no one has come back to me about the reservations, how do i book? Help!!!!!?????.

    best website ive come across in regards to making reservations is :

    From what ive read alot of people are saying that if you get there early, like before 11am you can still get tables, but whether that is actually the case i cant be to certain as this year will be my first year going lol

    Hey, i wanted to go to oktoberfest on the 22nd for 5 days but since ill be on my own im not sure what to do and the tent booking confused me a little so i was just wondering if you had sorted anything out or if you had any advice for me. Thanks

    Hi Paige, I have contacted some of the beertents about the reservation, and 90% of them is already fully booked, with minimum space still available during the day. They have told me that since we are only 2 x people, it would not be a problem to find a seat. You just go to the tents, and someone there will help you find available seats in the tent. It is mainly for bigger groups from 4persons + that will have a problem.

    hey! I’m looking at booking the 5 day one leaving from London on the 22nd! but this will be my first contiki and trip really on my own, so a bit nervous! but so excited about Oktoberfest!
    Does anyone know if its an absolute must to book the tents before you go?

  • 18 Jul 2011 AndrewBeer said


    Hi Kelly, if your planning on going into a beer tent with a big group its pretty important to have a booking, but if its only a couple of people its not that much of a big concern,

    Hi! About to book for the trip starting on the 22nd. I’m going by myself, so a little nervous but SUPER EXCITED. I’m so glad to see that there are more people on their own on this trip. Does anyone know what time Contiki is leaving London? I’m trying to book my flights and would like to coordinate a good time. Thanks, see you guys. Really. YEA!! :)
