Once you are in Munich the best tip is to use public transport. Don't go to the Oktoberfest in Germany with your own car. You won't find a parking lot anyway. Apart from that, you want to drink beer, and you shouldn't drive then.
The U-Bahn lines U4 and U5 bring you to the stop Theresienwiese, which is right at the northern entrance of the festival grounds.
The Theresienwiese is about 15 minutes walking distance from the Hauptbahnhof (main train station), so you can even walk from many centrally located hotels in Munich.
