5 of us are heading to Oktoberfest this year and after searching the web and this forum for some time, I still have a few questions. Any help would be much appreciated!!
1.) We're driving to Munich on Sunday, Sept. 19, from Amsterdam. Best case scenario is that we will arrive to our hotel(Hilton City Centre) at 5:00. Should we even bother trying to head down to the festival that night? Or is that so late that we wouldn't have a chance of getting into a tent?
2.) Anyone ever make the drive from Amsterdam to Munich? Google says it's about 7.5 hours..is that realistic?
3.) We're a group of 5 and plan on going to the tents on Monday and Tuesday. How early should we get there to gaurantee a table(planning on Hacker and Hofbrau)?
4.) If we get there in the early afternoon, is there any way to make sure that we're not at a table which is reserved for the evening session, so we don't have to change seats half way through? We'd prefer to grab our table and know that we're secure for the entire evening.
5.) Will we be 'obnoxious Americans' if we all wear lederhosen and dirndls?
6.) Any touristy 1/2 day trips you would recommend we could do and still have time to get to the festival in the afternoon?
