Those who take part in the festivities will enjoy Germany’s finest beers—all brewed in Munich—and sample traditional food, such as schweinebraten (roast pork), würstl (sausages), brezn (pretzels) and käsespätzle (cheese noodles). And if you couldn’t already tell, the days of cheap beer and bratwurst are gone—which is even more reason to indulge in a luxurious stay. Three 5-star hotels in the city are offering lavish Oktoberfest packages that go above and beyond to make this supremely unique experience even more special. Whether you’re booking a last-minute trip or exploring your options for next year, here are the places you need to know about before you go to Oktoberfest 2018!
