The beer price at Oktoberfest

Cost of a liter of Wiesn beer at the Oktoberfest

How much does a liter of beer cost at Oktoberfest? There are few questions which cause such suspense. Good to know: The prices are not determined by the Munich city authorities but by the proprietors. The city however, as the organizer of Oktoberfest, checks the stated prices for their appropriateness. In addition, a comparison to the prices in the main bars and restaurants in the city is made.
