Oktoberfest - ein Fest der Landeshauptstadt München

The municipal cleaning hotline for residents

The city of Munich offers a free cleaning service for neighbors of the Oktoberfest.

The Department of Labor and Economic Development (RAW) of the city of Munich offers a cleaning hotline for residents during the Wiesn. RAW are responding to calls from the residents around Theresienwiese who have frequently complained about fouling or other pollution by visitors to the Wiesn on their property or in house entrances and driveways.

Municipal cleaning service for private residences

Bürgermeister Josef Schmid introduced the service in 2016: “Oktoberfest requires some patience on the part of the surrounding neighbors, unfortunately also in relation to the behavior of guests outside the venue. The anger at the fouling of private residences is understandable. Therefore with the municipal cleaning hotline we want to offer residents quick and unbureaucratic support.” The hotline was trialed in 2016, was gratefully received and implemented thereafter.

When necessary: Ringing the hotline is all you need to do

During Oktoberfest a mobile cleaning team with a vehicle and high-pressure cleaner is on standby daily from 8 am to 4 pm, which can be ordered by telephone. Fouling and other pollution can be reported daily between 8 am and 10 am on +49 (0)89 233 82810. All calls are dealt with the same day.

Who can use this service?

The area of operation is the immediate surroundings of Theresienwiese and the service is available for residents within this area. To the north the service can be called up to Bayer- and Landsbergerstraße, in the east to Paul-Heyse-, Pettenkofer- and Goethestraße, in the south to Hans-Fischer- and Lindwurmstraße and in the west up to Ganghofer-, Holzapfel- and Gollierstraße.

The service is limited to house entrances and driveways of private residences and does not extend to sidewalks or public areas.
