Best way to get from Amsterdam to Munich, Germany during Oktoberfest


4 friends and I are going to be departing from Amsterdam to Munich on September 30, 2014. I can imagine this is a crazy time to travel into Germany with Oktoberfest, and from what I have been researching, it seems that it might be cheaper to fly than to take the train. We are looking for a good deal, and would not have issues with a little bit longer ride. Any suggestions?

thank you!

Oktoberfest will not impact the train from Amsterdam. When you arrive in Munich the train station might be a bit more crowded than usual and you might see some drunk people. We stayed in a small town about 50 minutes from Munich during Oktoberfest a few years ago. We took the train to Munich twice and it was not jam packed. If you prefer to take the train you shouldn't have any problems.

That was interesting. You can search the net for other places you can visit in Amsterdam and Munich.

If you're ready to lock in that train ticket 3 months ahead, then that's when it's cheapest through DB, and you can add a seat reservation for 4 euros. Or if you're using a railpass for one or both coutnries, you can get an optional seat reservation when you arrive in Amsterdam.
