Lost and Found

Every year, over 4000 things are lost and found during the Oktoberfest. The all-time classics are glasses, phones, money, jackets, pullovers and at least one set of dentures.

If you lost something:
The lost items of the same day are being delivered by the tents and others at the earliest in the course of the following day. Earlier inquiries are usually futile. Most lost items usually show up in the course of the following days and weeks. So please be patient.
We try to trace and inform the loser of the lost item after the Oktoberfest if possible.


During the Oktoberfest you find a Lost & Found Office at the Service Center of the Theresienwiese (entrance "Festleitung", basement). You find the Service Center behind the Schottenhamel Tent

Opening hours:
During the Oktoberfest: 13:00 to 22.00
On October 8th 2018: 10:00 to 18:00

After the Oktoberfest:

On October 9th, things that have not collected by their owners until the end of the Oktoberfest, get moved and stored in Munich's central lost and found office for six months. They can be collected there from November 8th 2018 to January 25th 2019. After that they get sold in a public auction.
