Get a lot of cash with you :) usually litre of beer costs 7-8 euros and some soda 4 euros...consider that this time is also great time to earn money for Bavarians...but don't get the wrong idea about the Oktoberfest as a mad party for drunk people...Germans are also famous for delicious snacks that go together with beer, sausages and grilled meat...the bad side of all this event is that you will come back with some extra pounds, definitely gaining weight, but it's worth it.
