    Hi! Thank you for the hints. My friend and I are running Berlin for the first time and this is extremely helpful (we are both traveling from the US). Do you happen to have any tip for Frankfurt?

      Thanks Sonja, I’m so glad you found the article helpful! I’m not a fan of Frankfurt so I don’t have many tips for things to do there. I do have this article about how to get between Berlin and Frankfurt. Most people take day trips to places like Heidelberg, Mainz, or the Rhine River.

    Hi! This was super helpful!
    Do you recommend going to octoberfest when going to marathon? I see The best travel option is train but if you don’t have a table reserved is it worth It ?

      Thanks Alden, glad to help! I haven’t actually been to Oktoberfest in Munich because I’m not a fan of crowds. But if you decide to go, here’s info on getting from Berlin to Munich. I agree that the train is the best option, and if you do it, definitely reserve a seat on the train, it’s only a little more money and totally worth it to have a guaranteed seat and not end up standing for 4.5 hours.

      I have heard that if you go to Oktoberfest in the morning, especially on a weekday, you have a decent chance of finding a seat if you don’t have a reservation. So if you’re willing to take the chance, it could still work out for you. Check out my friend LeAnna’s article about tables, tents, and reservations for Oktoberfest.
