Is Oktoberfest a Free Event?
Anyone can enter the Oktoberfest grounds and tent admission is free. However, once full capacity is reached and you do not have a reserved seat you will not be allowed into the tent. Most large tents reach maximum capacity early and then become closed to "walk ups". You will not have access to food or beer without a seat.
Purchasing a reservation allows you to avoid long lines and the risk of waiting for hours and then being denied admission due to capacity issues. Reservations are typically sold out months in advance and very difficult to come by. On weekends and opening day they can be sold out years in advance or only available to regular patrons and celebrities. Through our connections on the secondary market we have made it possible for any one to get a seat reservation.
Oktoberfest is the largest public festival in the world with over 6.5 million visitors over 16 days. It is held at the Theresienwiese, a large 90 acre park in Munich. It serves over 400,000 people per day which mean for every 4.5 people attending the event there is one seat, so reservations are highly recommended.
