Only 2 attending Octoberfest

My wife and I will attend Octoberfest for a couple days during the week, and we have a few questions.

1. Can you get tent reservations for 2? Do you need them?

2. Is it possible to walk around and go from tent to tent?

3. Any recommendations on things to do....besides beer and food (2 very good things to do I must admit!)

It is very good to go to the Oktoberfest with just two, as you can join other table, and squeeze in.

Try to go into the tents on weekdays around 4 PM, and stay the evening, you will have great fun!

Avoid the weekend unless you can't go on weekdays, weekends are very crowded, especially the saturday.

If you don't mind standing try the Hofbrau tent. They have tables where you stand and it was really easy to squeeze in.

However, overall, If your there early during the week you shouldn't have much problem finding a spot for only 2.

In all tents... if you dont have a seat you dont get service. 2 people will never have a problem finding space, irrespective of time of day. Its a communal thing... Dont get bogged down in one tent as a tourist- wander around and sample the various brands. No bad beer at OFest. During the week you will have no problems at all... this year they introduced extra security and who knows if this will be repeated next year or not...
