Day 1: Check-in to our Campsite
Meet your Busabout festivals team and check-in to your tent share accommodation at Camping Thalkirchen! Get comfortable and acquainted with the campsite and then it’s our social hour to meet and greet your fellow fest-mates. Take the shuttle into Munich centre for an orientation walk and dinner in a local beer hall or beer garden. Return shuttle after dinner back to the campsite to get some rest for tomorrow or continue partying at the campsite bar.
Day 2: Oktoberfest
Head down to the Oktoberfest grounds for the day! Soak up the Bavarian culture, take a bike tour, enjoy some of the festival rides...the choice is yours.
If you make it here in time for the Opening Ceremony, don't miss the Riflemen's Parade. This is one of the best and most colourful displays of Bavarian history, culture, and tradition. Watch regional costume groups, marching bands, 'troops' in historical uniforms, riflemen, thoroughbred horses, and even oxen, cows, and goats pass by in a 3-mile long procession.
Day 3: Oktoberfest
Spend another day soaking up the atmosphere at the Oktoberfest grounds, or you also have the option to join our day trip to one of the most stunning parts of Bavaria to visit King Ludwig's famous Neuschwanstein Castle. This region is absolutely breathtaking and the castle itself was used as a model for Walt Disney's Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
Day 4: Farewell
Time to leave! Check-out is at 10am. (For those hopping on the Busabout Hop-on Hop-off coach, check-out is at 7am). There will also be a Busabout coach transfer into central Munich.
A total blast from start to finish, with tight shorts added to the mix"
