Oktoberfest 2008: Gadling wants your tips for enjoying the world’s biggest festival

It’s that time of year again, when millions of beer-craving revelers descend on Germany’s second city, Munich, for the world’s largest fair, Oktoberfest, which kicks off this coming Saturday, Sept. 20, and runs through Oct. 5.

Yes, it’s über touristy and expensive. But it’s also a hell of a lot of fun, especially for first timers, and it probably ranks as one of those travel things that everybody should do at least once in their lives.

Are you an Oktoberfest veteran? Gadling would like to hear your tips for getting the most out of Wiesn.

When is the best time to go? Where are the best places to stay? How do you score reservations in beer tents? How much should you budget to spend? What are some don’t-miss attractions beyond the fairgrounds? Dos and Don’ts?

We’d appreciate any tips you’d like to pass on to your fellow travelers.

Here’s how: You can leave a comment, contact us here, or send me an e-mail at: jeffrey.white@weblogsinc.com.

I’ll gather them up and publish the best of them later this week.

Viel Spaß!
