Holiday Inn Munchen Messe - looking for info on this hotel

by ontariokaren

Hello VT friends ! I am just about to book for two nights at this hotel, Sept 22,23 for Oktoberfest. Anyone familiar with the location?? How far to Oktoberfest? I am happy with the reviews/pix I've seen and am wondering about location. Thanks in advance !

If it is close to the Messe it is out of the city. However I do not remember seeing a Holiday Inn close to the Messe when I was working there in June. Do you have an address for the hotel? With Google I have found only a Holiday Inn Express in Feldkirchen, which is out of the city and not even close enough to the Messse to be reached with the U-Bahn.

The Holiday Inn Messe is in Feldkirchen, about 12 km east of the city centre, meaning 13 to 14 km from the location of Oktoberfest (which is Theresienwiese). That would explain why they still have rooms...

But it is no real problem as you can commute easily by S-Bahn.

I think there once was a Holiday Inn closer to Theresienwiese and I even stayed there - but either it has closed down there or I do not remember well and it was a different brand...

Messe = a trade fair / the trade fair grounds

Same like with "airport" hotels. Some are close. Some less. Some only by car but not if using public transport.

> The address is Otto Lillienthal-Ring6; 85622; Munich
Not in Munich but in Feldkirchen in the county Munich. A community just outside of Munich.
Munich itself has the postal codes 80331–81929.

You can check the travel times from a hotel (address) to the Oktoberfest with the MVV timetable

From: Feldkirchen, Otto-Lilienthal-Ring 6
To: Oktoberfest

You can also use just the postal code instead of the town name.
From: 85622, Otto-Lilienthal-Ring 6

Oktoberfest

by mvtouring

Happens every year, and 2010 was the 200th anniversary of this event which i was fortunate enough to attend. In 12 massive tents, 6 million guests from around the world gather and consume 6 million litres of beer, eat 500,000 chicken, countless prezels and 100 oxen, then I have not even mentioned the famous schweinehaxen.
It is in honour of Ludwig von Bayern and his wife Therese's wedding and it takes place on the Thereseinwies. It usually takes place end of September as the weather is better then than around 12 October when the actual wedding took place.

Drink Brüderlein Beer instead of Water

by Sirvictor

Germans of Munich drink bier like a barrel in huge bier glasses. I am not used it. For that reason I drink only a "kleines" little. There was also brass music in the halle but it was too noisy. For that reason we find ourselves a remote place in one of the endless corridors. I think the Munchener had the idea to build a hugu bier halle after seeing our covered bazaars in Turkey. the Kapali Carcis. hi hi hi

Fasching (Munich's Carneval)

by Henkster

Munich has quite a big carneval, which is called "Fasching". It's a big party that takes place in the center of the city with live music on stages, performances, dances, people singing, dancing, drinking and partying outside (if the weather permits it).

Memorial to 11 Israeli Athletes and a policeman

by gordonilla

On 5 September 1972, 11 Israeli athletes competing in the XX Olympiad in Munich and a German Police Officer were killed by terrorists.

The memorial is very probably walked past by many visitors to the Olympic Stadium and Park with no thought given to what it is or why it is there.

If you pass this memorial after reading this section - please stop and pay your respects - the traditional values of the Olympic Games should be well above that of politics!
