2. Watch Your Spending

Pacing yourself is one of the most important ways to survive Oktoberfest, although it’s definitely something that most party goers fail miserably at. With a liter of beer (known as a Maß) costing roughly 10€ - $13 (including a tip, which you have to pay if you ever want to see your waitress again), it’s extremely easy to spend all your cash in one hit. A great way to make sure that you don’t bankrupt yourself on the first day however, is to make a strict budget and leave your credit cards safely back in your room.
