Oktoberfest in Dusseldorf

For the last 2 years my brother and his wife have been living in Dusseldorf, Germany on a "relo."  My husband and I were lucky to be able to go visit with them last fall during Oktoberfest.  Unfortunately it was too much to make it down to Munich for the real deal but we still enjoyed Oktoberfest in Dusseldorf...



While visiting, we agreed that we would make it back this year, but this time we would meet in Munich for the official Oktoberfest.  So now we are only 23 days away until we leave for Germany.  I am super excited and it is just starting to hit me now.  After doing a long weekend in Munich, we are heading down to the King's Castles and then over to Austria to visit Innsbruck and Salzburg.

So as you can imagine, we have so much to plan.  Of course the first thing we have already taken care of are our beer tent tickets (back in January)...we will be going with a large group.  Also my sister-in-law scored me a Dirndl (hopefully it fits) so I just need a blouse now.  Yes, I am going to dress-up for the festivities.  When in Rome, right?!
But...
We still need to figure out what we want to do in Austria and where to stay by the King's Castles.

Have you been to Oktoberfest?  What are your suggestions?

Have you been to Innsbruck or Salzburg, Austria?

I would love any feedback.....
