I (15, girl) would like to go to the Oktoberfest in Munich this year. I have never been! What do I need to know?

Oktoberfest is probably the biggest fair in the world.
On some days there are 600,000 people attending.
Sometimes this can be uncomfortable.
You can find some tips here to ensure you have a good visit.

Oktoberfest can be a lot of fun.
There can also be unpleasant moments at the Oktoberfest:
If you are suddenly all alone.
If somebody has offended you.
If you have experienced violence.
These are just a few examples.

We would like to state: your feelings are ok and important!
If you need help go to the Security Point for girls and women.
There are nice ladies there to help you out with any problems.
They are there every day from 6 pm until 1 am and on Saturday from 3 pm until 1 am.
The Security Point is in the Service Centre.
The police, Red Cross and lost and found office can also be found here.
You can also ask security staff, police or service staff.
They can show you the way.
