Stress-free travel there and back

Mit der MVG zur Wiesn

Without the efficient MVG transport links, there would hardly be an Oktoberfest: The Wiesn attracts around 6 million visitors from all over the world. Every year well over half of these choose public transport to get there. And that is why this year we are also upgrading our service.

Using the U-Bahn (underground) lines U4 and U5, MVG can take passengers as far as the Theresienwiese station, right at the entrance to the Oktoberfest, meaning you don't have to deal with the problem of parking.

Advice: Two other U-Bahn lines U3 U6 stopping short of the Oktoberfest at Goetheplatz and Poccistraße as a real alternative, especially at peak periods! From both stations it's only 5 (or less) minutes to the Oktoberfest by foot.

Our advice: Use the signposted footpaths from and to Central Station!

Tickets and Park & Ride parking

For Wiesn visitors we particularly recommend single or partner day tickets at the MVV rate These can be obtained, for instance, from all ticket machines at Underground and S-Bahn stations as well as on board of Trams and buses. Day tickets are valid for an unlimited number of journeys throughout the whole day until 06.00 the following day.

For users of the DB (German Railways) "Bayern-Ticket", "Bayern-Ticket Night", "Bayern-Ticket Single" or "Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket" (special weekend ticket), MVV transport is already included. For traveling by public transport and discounted admission to many tourist destinations, the CityTourCard or the Munich Card can be considered.

You can find all information relating to Munich Transport and Tariff Association (MVV) ticket prices here. If you just can't do without the car, you can find here an overview of the Park & Ride car parks, where there is a connecting public transport service.

MVG Wiesn Service

Our MVG customer centres are not enough for us when it's Wiesn time. During the Oktoberfest we provide additional information options:

MVG information points at the Wiesn:

  • MVG Infopoint U-Bahn station Theresienwiese daily 8.00 to 0.30
  • MVG Infopoint U-Bahn station Theresienwiese (Paulskirche exit) daily 16.00 to 0.30
  • MVG Infopoint U-Bahn station Goetheplatz daily 8.30 to 1.00
  • MVG ticket- und information point Hauptbahnhof (main railway station), Mo - Fr 8.00 to 20.00; Sat 9.00 to 16


Please feel free to contact our service teams at Theresienwiese, Goetheplatz, Hauptbahnhof (Central Station), Odeonsplatz and Ostbahnhof Underground station at any time.

Information for football enthusiast

The football matches of FC Bayern München are a particular challenge for the public transport System during the duration of the Wiesn. There may be bottlenecks and some access closures to stations after the games are over.

MVG recommends all passenger travelling between the Allianz Arena and the Oktoberfest before and after the match to use Underground line U6 directly to / from Goetheplatz station and not to change for U4 and U5 at Odeonplatz, as these trains might be overcrowded. From Goetheplatz it's only about 5 minutes (or less) by foot to the Oktoberfest.

When it gets late

First check your information - then travel. This is a good idea particularly when you take one of the last U-Bahn trains and then need a connecting train or bus. In any case, our night services will still get you safely home even if the last U-Bahn has left.

Security and Safety

The Wiesn services must also of course run without mishap in terms of security and safety. This is why the MVG is not just in permanent contact with the local security and safety agencies before and during Wiesn time - primarily the police - but also makes its own arrangements. And, of course, everything that happens throughout the entirety of the U-Bahn system is permanently under video surveillance from the U-Bahn operations centre. But each passenger can also help to reduce the risk:

  • If you wish to report unattended luggage, suspicious items or antisocial behaviour, please use the telephones provided on each platform and in each coach to make contact with an MVG staff member.
  • Show pickpockets the red card! Always carry your valuables in different closed inside pockets as near the body as possible! Never put aside your wallet when paying at stalls and for amusement rides! Never leave your bag or backpack unattended, especially not in the area of the beer tents! Make sure that your purse is properly closed and carry it with the clasp close to your  body!
