Is there Octoberfest in Austria?

by MAPPER »

I'll be in Vienna for business in September and I can't seem to find any mention. Am thinking of adding in a short hop to Munich, as I've always wanted to experience Oktoberfest but don't want to do so if it will be happening in Vienna. Does anyone know?

There are differences - Munich is all about beer and more beer, with the occasional sausage, and a rather monotonous offering of same-old-same-old music. 

Wien has a bit more class and diversity in its offerings. See https://www.wien.info/en/shopping-wining-dining/wiener-wiesn
