So, I am wanting to land in Munich, Germany around september 13th and stay for a bit of Oktoberfest. Has anyone been to Oktoberfest? Do you gots some crazy stories? How far in advance should I book a hostel?

I also want to be in Amsterdam for Cannibus Cup which i think is at the end of November. Could anyone confirm that for me? Also again, does anyone have any crazy stories about cannibus cup, and how far in advance should I book a hostel?

Any info or stories about either event would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!!!

From what I have read and heard about the Cannibis Cup, it is more of an event by the name then there actually being a lot to enjoy there. If you want to be a judge, you pay some outrageous amount like 300 euro and all that gets you is a laminated pass and a few other perks. I believe you still have to pay for the various products. Also, the city is overrun by tourists, especially the coffeeshops and most of the coffeeshops are not equipped to handle too many people. Hope this does not kill your buzz (ok, bad one) about attending the Cup.
If you have The Sundance film channel, they often show a film called "Weed", which is about the 1999 Cannibis Cup. You might want to watch it if you have the chance to, so you can decide if this is for you or not.
