Property Description

The original Festanation Campsite, the best and hottest festival campsite at Oktoberfest! We will give you everything you need (and more!) for a wild, social and unforgettable Oktoberfest experience. We offer basic dorm & private tents for backpackers, including sleeping materials. We have a great location, next to the subway which allows you to travel to Oktoberfest really easily and fast. Our camp is all about affordable accommodation, meeting other travellers and experiencing the Oktoberfest in the best possible way! We also offer free Oktoberfest-tours!

The Festanation Oktoberfest Campsite crew will check you in with a big smile on our faces upon arrival, where the tents will be waiting for you already set up, including thick comfy air mattress and sleeping bag. On departure day you just take out your stuff and we clean up the mess for you! We have our own common breakfast area, including a nice terrace with picnic tables. You can enjoy your own beers & booze over here, play beer pong & other fun games and obviously party before and after Oktoberfest. There is also an actual big wooden party-chalet that holds the campsite restaurant & bar. Here you can get tasty German beers and enjoy typical German food. In the morning a simple, tasty breakfast & hot coffee will be waiting for you and your (new) friends. Enjoy your breakfast at our picnic tables in the sun and make a new game plan for the day!

    What a great weekend! Four of my roommates and I shared a yurt with 3 other young people. There was a heater and a power strip and a mirror. The bathrooms were very nice and the beer you could buy was great and inexpensive. When one of our mattresses deflated, they were quick to replace it and make us comfortable. April brought us in to the festival and helped us get a table--we really liked her and the staff member from South Africa!! Also, the provided breakfast was perfect!

    The Oktoberfest Campsite was great! It provided everything that it said it would; however, my friends were able to find a place that was a little closer and a little cheaper. With that said, the Festanation crowd was awesome. Just maybe next time have a fire-pit because it started to get cold.

    Very Good

    Fun hostel with super friendly staff! I especially enjoyed the complimentary beer and shot upon my arrival. Bring an extra blanket. I went alone and was able to make a few friends while there, they escort you to the fest and it's just a 5-10 minute walk to the train with about a 20 minute ride. Dont expect to get sleep here as they tend to party until 5am. Clean considering you're in a tent, and the same goes for the restroom (highly recommend slippers for the shower- the floor was dirty).
