There is every possibility, by car, train or plane. From Switzerland the train is to recommend, from Zurich to Munich it only takes you about four and a half hours.
The subway system takes you to the bigger places. To recommend, when you have a big distance to do. The bus is a good alternative.

Buy a BAYERN TICKET! It'S only 20€ and up to 5 people can use it all day long on regional trains in Bavaria as well as within Munich on buses and underground trains. So for 4€ a person could go from Munich to Salzburg and back.

One of the best and cheapest ways to escape from Munich is a special offer of BOB called WochenendCard. At the price of 25 DM two adults and three children can travel on saturday and sunday on BOB's net.
Sorry, the link is in High German (the only foreign language that Bavarians are sometimes willing to learn).

Da Plane...Da Plane!...

Da Plane...Da Plane! Actually....high speed rail will get you all over & back and forth.
Take the train, it gets you everywhere quick. Just don't get lazy and think you have plenty of time to get to the station, when the schedule says a time that train pulls up EXACTLY when it's supposed to. No late trains there, these people do NOT mess around with the time thing.

If you want to visit...

If you want to visit neighbouring cities with the train, there are plenty of cheap tickets available. If the city is within Munichs public transportation system (S-bahn, that is, for example Dachau or Herrsching), buy Gesamtnetztageskarte (or partner up to 5 persons). It costs 9 €, 15 € for partner.

If you want to travel further in Bavaria (for example, Nürnberg), or even to Salzburg, buy either Bayernkarte or Schönes Wochenende- cards. Both are valid for up to 5 persons, making group travelling cheap. Bayernkarte is valid for weekdays and Schönes wochende on weekends. Both are valid for one day. Be aware that you cannot travel with bayernkarte before 9 AM on normal weekdays (holidays are exception). Bayernkarte is valid only for Bavaria (and some other cities, check Prices are 21 € for Bayernkarte and 28 € for Schönes Wochenendekarte (Prices 1st of April 2002 onwards). Note that the tickets are not valid for each train, only in local transportation. Just check and mark 'only local traffic' in travelservice.

Take the train into the city. You will end up at the main train station and can get anywhere from there!
Take the subway anywhere you need to go. There is an excellent subway system in Munchen. If you are not going far then walk!

The train station is very conveniently located...near Oktoberfest, shopping plaza, and other sites.
We actually arrived by car, which was easy too. (our hotel was right across the street from the Hoptbaunhof (main train station)

There's a train from every direction in Germany. There are really comfortable night trains, too, and very fast sprinter-trains from other big German cities.
Munich has very few parking spaces, most of them quite expensive. So if you have a car, leave it at the hotel and use the really good public transport:

There's a lot of underground, streetcars, trains and buses over the whole city and far into the outskirts - even late at night and early on sundays. Trains from the outskirts run at least twice an hour, the buses, underground and streetcars run from every twenty to every three minutes, according to time and location. In the evening and on sundays the trains meet each other in time so you can change trains at the junctions without having to wait long.

You can get a ticket on the stations or in the streetcars - there are daily general tickets for up to five people which are not very expensive.
NOTE: Don't buy tickets in advance, you can't keep them too long, because they raise their prices every June and won't take the old tickets after that!

Unless you are coming from outside continental Europe, I suggest you take the train. The parties on these trains taking you to Octoberfest and almost as fun as the event itself.
Once you arrive, you can walk to the beer garden.
