"OKTOBERFEST is heaven for..." At the Oktoberfest Tip by Shar

At the Oktoberfest, Munich: 11 reviews and 6 photos

OKTOBERFEST is heaven for pickpockets. Leave your cards at home and have your cash in your pocket (seperated).
I didn't and subsequently lost the lot in the first 10 mintutes of arriving in a beer hall.
Its easy for them as they work in groups, on bumps you and apologises the other grabs it as you fall into them. Then they pass it on to another onso even if you grab the ones near by, the wallet is well gone and you can't do much with 1000's of people and not a policeman in sight.
Hmmmm. Just be careful. (ha I sound like my Mum now!!!)
