A bird’s eye view of the Oktoberfest
St. Paul’s Church is situated north of the Theresienwiese. The neo-Gothic church at the end of Landwehrstraße opens its main tower to visitors during the Wiesn and offers an impressive view of the Oktoberfest and all of Munich. When the weather is good, you can even see a panorama of the Alps behind the Ferris wheel and the tents. It’s well worth climbing the 250 steps to the viewing platform to be rewarded with the view from 50 meters high.
The tower of St. Paul’s Church is open on weekdays from 9 am to 12 noon, 2 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 8 pm, and on Sundays from 2 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 8 pm. Adults are asked to make a donation of three euros for entry, and children and teenagers up to 16 years enter free. Around 6,000 people enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Oktoberfest on average every year.
