ProntoHotel’s Recommendations for Oktoberfest Around the Globe Hotel Seibel, Munich, Germany One thing’s for sure: you’re not going to get any closer to Munich Oktoberfest than by staying here. Located directly across from the Theresienwiese fairgrounds, you’ll even be able to get in on the action just by looking out your balcony or window (don’t worry—the windows are soundproof). Both inexpensive and convenient, you’ll get all of the modern comforts, plus a nearby place to rest your head once you’ve filled your belly with beer.
