Anything I need to know about attending a proper Oktoberfest before going?
Although you won’t be turned away for not being in full costume, you are fully encouraged to get into the Bavarian spirit of the event. Why not join in on the fun and dress up? You don’t have to go in full Dirndl or Lederhosen, even a little effort is appreciated.
How can I get to Spreewiesn Oktoberfest from Capri by Fraser Berlin?
Just outside the hotel, you can hop on a short 10-minute bus ride on either the number 147 or 248 to the venue. The buses run fairly frequently, every 20 minutes. Postbahnhof is roughly around 2 minutes’ walk away from the stop at Ostbahnhof station.
If you are feeling up for a walk, you can stroll from the hotel to the venue in roughly 30 minutes. And if you are wearing your Lederhosen and don’t feel like braving public transport, a 4-minute Uber or rideshare will have you there in no time at all.
