Love it, or hate it, it really is one of those things not to be missed and experienced at least once, plus you don’t have to like beer, (though you must like crowds).  There’s also the food, the parade, the carnival, the rides, the kitsch, including traditional dress, so get those lederhosen out of the closet. 

Speaking of former closets, there are always ‘gay days’ organised at the start of the festival and they take place from the first Sunday, in the Bräurosl tent.

Theresienwiese is also a great place to go at any time of the year for it’s flea markets and Christmas markets, both of which are a must.  There are often around 40,000 visitors at any one time and 3000 sellers, so it’s an impressive market.
