Where do I buy Oktoberfest-tickets?
Nowhere. Such don’t even exist. Many foreigners expect to pay an entrance fee to the festival grounds or at least for the beer tents. Rest assured that the entrance is always free. However, the beer tents are usually closed for overcrowding on Friday nights and Saturdays. If this happens, reservations, which guarantee admission, come in very handy. See our special page to find out more about how to reserve tables at the Oktoberfest. However, as a first-timer, you can't expect to get a Friday or Saturday night reservation.
A small entrance fee is only to be paid for the Oide Wiesn. Tickets can only be bought on the spot.
