Uber is one of the largest providers of driving services in the world apart from taxis and public transportation. It also automatically detects and analyzes a lot of data that the company collects and analyzes for anyone who uses the app.
Since “Uber” itself is advertised to the public, this makes it possible to very accurately track where Oktoberfest visitors come from, where they go most often, far from the festival grounds and where they sleep.
Wiesn Overnight: Camp First
Amazingly, Uber reveals that the most popular accommodation this year is not a hotel, but a camping site in Obermenzing. The Westin Grand at Arabellapark in Bogenhausen and Hilton Munich Park follow directly in the Englischer Garten in second and third place as overnight destinations.
But even before you go to bed, there’s a party, even when it’s already over at Festwiese: as expected, P1 is at the top, followed by Pacha and Hofbräuhaus. The mobility provider “Free Now” also confirms that the P1 is the number one destination for die-hard party-goers: the most famous route recorded there was the one from Theresienwiese to P1 at Prinzregentenstraße.
Oktoberfest: visitors from over 100 countries
What Uber also knows best: Where all the people who drive during the two weeks of Oktoberfest in Munich come from: first comes the US (which is also where Uber comes from), followed by Great Britain and France. Switzerland fourth and Australia fifth.
This is also reflected in cities: most users come from London, followed by New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In total, Oktoberfest tourists came from 100 countries and nearly 900 cities from all over the world.
