To the Oktoberfest 2013 by public transport

When the beer starts to flow, the car stays at home in the garage. That is why especially at this time of year the public transport services in the MVV network are a safe and stress-free alternative. All aboard the “Oktoberfest shuttle”!

That your car can stay at home

The public transport services within the MVV network are a safe and convenient way of getting to the Oktoberfest.

As the stop Theresienwiese (U4, U5) is usually very crowded, we strongly recommend using the following stops instead to ensure that you arrive as fast as possible:

Schwanthalerhöhe (U4, U5, MetroBus 53 und StadtBus 134)

Goetheplatz (U3, U6, MetroBus 58 und NachtBus N40/N41)

Poccistraße (U3, U6, MetroBus 62, StadtBus 131 und NachtBus N40/N41)

Hackerbrücke (S1 bis S8, Tram 16 und 17 sowie NachtTram N16)

All of these stops are located close to the Oktoberfest grounds, so you don’t have to walk far.

Our Advice:
Please also use the walkways from Munich Central Station to the Oktoberfest.

If you have to travel by car, we recommend using the numerous Park & Ride facilities located within the MVV network.

Please note:
The consumption of alcohol is prohibited on S-Bahn (urban rail), U-Bahn (underground), Tram and Metrobus lines as well as in the regioal busses within the MVV network.
Please mind that it is also prohibited to bring glass bottles to the Oktoberfest grounds.

If it’s getting a little late

In 2013, as usual this time of year, public transport services will be increased.

The U-Bahn (underground trains) runs until about 2 am at night from Fridays to Saturdays and Saturdays to Sundays, as well as before the public holiday (German National Day on 3 October).

During the Oktoberfest, the S-Bahn (urban trains) runs more frequently at night every day of the week. The last train departs at around 1.30 am every morning. On the weekends and before public holidays, the last S-Bahn will depart at around 2.30 am.

The MVV regional buses will also be driving extra shifts during the Oktoberfest. The schedule of several MVV regional bus lines in the greater Munich area will be extended until around 1 am.

Of course our journey planner will take all of these extended schedules into account.

The right ticket

Travelling to Oktoberfest as a group

If you travel as a group, we recommend the Partner Day Ticket. It can be purchased from ticket machines and is valid for up to five adults, whereby any two children between 6 and 14 years of age count as one adult.

Partner Day Ticket

... or alone

If you are planning to go to the Oktoberfest alone, the Single Day Ticket is the best choice for getting there and back home again. With the Single Day Ticket you can travel to and from the Oktoberfest and explore Munich using public transport as often as you like on that day.

Single Day Ticket

If you have a valid Bayern-Ticket or a Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket the public transport services within the MVV network are included.
