Yeah, I was wondering about that too.... Octoberfest was one of the main reasons that I chose to go on this trip during this time. From what I read on-line, just about anyone can get into Octoberfest and enter the beer tents, but the individual breweries do have reservations. I think this is kinda equivalent to a VIP or preferred guest, but not sure. Here is the FAQ page:
:) guys i dont think we should have a problem, they have 14 large tents..but i did see one tent gets filled up faster than the others so you have to reserve in advance..either way plenty of tent hopping! Oh & the hostel might be 2.2 miles from the action..top 3 things to do on this trip, amsterdam being #1(wink)!!!
Yes so excited for this! I also looked up the dates of Oktoberfest before I chose the trip date.. My cousins did this tour last year at the same time and they got into to it so we should be fine.. they said it was a blast!
