Entrances for journalists, photographers and camera teams
Large bags and backpacks are strictly prohibited on the grounds of the Oktoberfest and the Oide Wiesn. The photographic and TV equipment needed by media representatives in the course of their work are an exception to this rule.
At all entrances to the Oktoberfest, camera bags, equipment and all other baggage will therefore be checked every day when you show your press card (accreditation). A “Security Check” banderole that is also valid for the Oide Wiesn will then be affixed to each approved item.
If you do not yet have your accreditation and/or filming/photo permit when you arrive, please use entrance P14 (the pedestrian underpass/stairs leading from Theresienhöhe to the Oktoberfest grounds). You will have to show your press card and your equipment will be checked. You can then apply for and pick up your accreditation/filming permit/photo permit from the Oktoberfest Press Office.
