Trade Fairs and Holidays

Fairs and holidays 2016

Before planning a trip to Munich, it would be wise to make sure there are no major events such as trade fairs, exhibitions or Munich’s Oktoberfest (unless you come for that specific purpose), since flights and hotels may be either hopelessly booked out or fares and rates increase considerably.
