Oktoberfest: Stuttgart v. Munich

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a short trip (5-7 days) to Germany during Oktoberfest. I will be staying with a friend in Frankfurt; so I won't need hotel or land-travel accommodations. However, I've never been to Europe and I would appreciate any feedback regarding the best/most interesting (in your opinion) things I should experience while I'm there. Being an innately curious person, I'm uber interested in seeing and experiencing as much as is physically possible--given the short amount of time that I'll be in Germany. I've heard that the city of Stuttgart has a better (more personal experience) Oktoberfest celebration, as opposed to the highly publicized events in Munich.
Additionally, my friend will be working during the day so I will need to entertain myself; does anyone have several suggestions for good places to visit or events near Frankfurt? What is a reasonable amount of spending cash for me to bring? Is day-travel relatively safe for a female who is traveling alone? I'd love to try and fit in a short (one day) trip to Poland, if possible...do any of you suggest that I try to do this?
I'd appreciate any feedback on your personal experiences during German Oktoberfest, or any other useful information for a first-time traveler (that would be me) to Europe.
Danke!
