Day 2: Arrive Munich
We arrive at the campsite in Munich late morning where you'll be allocated your pre-pitched tent and given a nice breakfast. Once settled your Guide will take you on an orientation walk of the city. You can either head to one of the local beer halls to warm up for the festival or just chill out and explore the city at your own pace. We will run a shuttle from Munich to the campsite to get you back…. (B)
Day 3: Oktoberfest - Opening Ceremony
The fun begins today! We leave the campsite nice and early to try our best to ensure we get good seats for the opening ceremony. Our experience means that we know the right place to be and when to be there. The parade kicks off at 11am.
The festival begins with a colourful parade through the streets of Munich to the Oktoberfest grounds. Horse and carts in traditional dress carry in the very beer kegs we will soon be drinking from! Watch the landlords make their festive entry to the Theresienwiese. There will be shuttles throughout the day to get you back to the campsite. (B)
