Every year, thousands flock to the streets of Munich, Germany to celebrate Oktoberfest. What started as a wedding celebration for a Bavarian princess has turned into the world’s largest beer garden – a legend that brings together boozehounds from every corner of the globe for one grand debacle.

 The trick is booking accommodation before realizing that Oktoberfest actually hits Munich before October. For those of you who are behind the curve on getting in on the action, you’re in luck.

This year, Airbnb has you covered with two options that will get you closer to the action in accommodations a mere 20 minutes from Oktoberfest so you can get up-close and personal and near enough to crawl home.

Airbnb Wies’n Lofts

From California to Argentina, Glamping has dazzled travelers looking to indulge in nature but want to keep things fabulous.  Airbnb Wies’n Lofts brings this new trend to Oktoberfest, letting you get closer to the action without sacrificing comfort or style.  Lofts range from 129 to 169 EUR per night, and come equipped with a double bed, heat and A/C, a personal patio set and private access to restroom and shower facilities.

For “Bierleichen” and those who need a recharge in between steins, we’ve created the Airbnb Wellness Lounge where guests of Wies’n Lofts and Wies’n Camp can unwind and recharge throughout the day. Get your hair braided Bavarian style or chill out in our beanbag garden until you’re ready for Round 2.

Don’t let this year pass you by. Book your Airbnb lodging and learn what Oktoberfest is all about.
