As most bags have been banned from Oktoberfest since 2016, keep in mind, you have to leave your baggage outside of the fairgrounds.

The fact, that an Oktoberfest visit is less fun with lots of baggage, shouldn’t surprise anyone. Unfortunately, since 2016, even purses and bags with a volume of more than three liters are prohibited on the fairgrounds. Consequently, only with really small bags, your still are allowed to enter.

Travelling to Oktoberfest by train, you may already want to leave your baggage in the lockers at the main station. Due to the ban of bags from Oktoberfest, you’ll find a number of lockers and left-luggage offices next to the Oktoberfest entrances. Depending on their operator and the size of your luggage, you’ll be charged between 4 and 7 Euros.

The built-in “wardrobe” of a beer table may be practical, but easily is a jacket left there, left there well until after you left yourself? Or what do you think, how many mobile phones and cameras the Olympia-Looping has been snatching from its riders all these years, more elegantly than any pickpocket? No matter, if you’re looking for your wallet, wheelchair or artificial leg, if you’re lucky it will all end up at the lost and found. You’ll find it behind the Schottenhamel-Festhalle under the sign that says “Festleitung”.

Please keep in mind, that most found items are usually only brought in the next day. As many things show up even later, the office is still open after the end of Oktoberfest.
