    Speak fast

    The pay phones are expensive in Munich. If you absolutely must use one, make sure you have enough change and be prepared to cut out any unnecessary small talk or you're pockets will be empty pretty fast!

    Most people in Munich don't spend a lot of time on the phone (even cell phones) because they pay per call as opposed to the monthly service plans that I was used to in the States.

    YOu can do better someplace else to purchase items to eat, take home such as cheese, meats and spices, etc, of tourist items to take home. There is such a demand and crowds at the market that they do not have to compete for better prices. It seems to be mostly set for the tourists; either foreign, or Duetsch.
    A beer costs 4-5 Euro for 1/2L and the brat maybe 4-5 Euro.

    when visiting the old Valentin-Musäum (Isartor), a homage to Munichs burlesqe actor and famous cabaret artiste, mind that you only will have free access when you are aged 99 with your parents at your side - otherwise you will have to pay 99 Pfennig - don´t now how they handle this in Euro ...???

    Jacked up prices for Oktoberfest

    by hethbill Written Nov 16, 2007

    I know, big surprise, but the prices of everything around Munich are jacked up during Oktoberfest.
    We paid over $300 night for a hotel room (it was very nice, however)
    A liter of beer in the beer tents is about 8 euros
    A pretzel at the beer tent is 4 euros (they are huge though)

    Everything at the fairgrounds is a lot of money...

    The farther you wander from the fairgrounds, the more reasonable. We had dessert and drinks at the Hofbrauhaus, and I dare say prices were normal.

    Telephone Calls

    I found that telephone calls and even one page faxes from the hotel were terribly expensive! I think everything in Germany is expensive.
