Meet your Busabout festival team at reception and then it's time to head out and explore Munich! Take in some of the famous sights as well as all the practical information you need for your stay. We will visit some of the best shops where you can buy traditional clothes (lederhosen & dirndls) for those of you keen to get kitted up.
