For many locals in Munich, Oktoberfest does not really start until the crowds of Trachtler, people dressed in traditional costume, take to the streets. The traditional Trachtenumzug (parade) – which is the largest of its type in the world – always takes place on the first Sunday of Oktoberfest.
Hotels and accommodation establishments, shops, indoor and outdoor catering, and also clubs and discos are open. However, restrictions apply. All other important information on the coronavirus and your stay in Munich can be found here.
