Oktoberfest 2023 - Closing Weekend - Hostel
Final places now available!
If you're still deciding over which weekend to head to Oktoberfest look no further than the Closing Ceremony Weekend, considered to be the best weekend of the whole festival!
Oktoberfest Closing Ceremony WeekendUnlike the Opening Weekend where the beerhalls don't start operating until Saturday afternoon and tourist levels (and prices!) are at their heaving peak, at the Closing Weekend the beerhalls & Oktoberfest fairgrounds are in action from the minute you arrive in Munich. And being the grand finale to the event the true beerfest atmosphere is at its peak, it's as good as it gets!
For the locals the Closing Ceremony signals the biggest celebration of the year as the Bavarians come out in force see out the summer in massive style. Do yourself a favour and come and enjoy the truly authentic Oktoberfest experience!
