Flights to Munich popular ahead of Oktoberfest

People of all ages are expected to book flights to Munich for this year's Oktoberfest, the Munich Tourist Office has said.

People of all ages are expected to book flights to Munich for this year’s Oktoberfest, the Munich Tourist Office has said.

Despite the fact that six million litres of beer will be drunk at this year’s festival, Karoline Graf, a spokesperson at the tourist office, said it was suitable for people of all ages.

"It has a lot to offer for families – there is a family spot where it’s a bit calmer [and] where you can stay with little children," she commented.

Ms Graf did warn that people booking flights to Munich should be wary about the city’s hotel situation, with prices tending to rise during the run-up to Oktoberfest.

The German city’s famous beer festival is set to prove a hit with Brits after a recent TripAdvisor study found that Brits are more likely than people from other European countries to prop up the bar while on holiday.

According to the poll, travellers from the UK spend an average of one hour and 38 minutes each day enjoying the local hospitality.
