Munich Tourist Traps: 64 reviews and 52 photos
...but none of them are as expensive as Munich's. If you want to pay several times over the odds for your visit, while getting drunk on beer with other tourists, then the Munich Oktoberfest is just for you. There are, however, many excellent alternatives in Bavaria and Germany, all of which are much cheaper, more authentic, and with beer that is just as good as Munich's.
Fun Alternatives: Most of German's big cities have their own beer festivals at various times of the year, including Stuttgart, Berlin and Cologne. One particularly well recommended one is in Bavaria, two hours north of Munich in Erlangen, near Nuremberg. Erlangen is held in May, so the weather is better for all night drinking, the patrons are distinctly local, and the prices are much lower. It still gets big crowds, although not the millions that descend on Munich.
