Move Oktoberfest to the top of your bucket list. It’s not just a European must-do; it ranks up there as one of the world’s biggest parties!
Imagine the best night you’ve ever had in your local bar, add a foolish amount of amusement rides, enough sausages to satisfy thousands of hungry Germans, people dressed like Disney princesses and traditional huntsmen and you still wouldn’t be close to how absurdly awesome this party is! On this four-day trip, you experience the best bits of Oktoberfest. You see the first keg unleashed at the opening festival and have time to explore the marvels of Munich. We’ve even thrown in cooked breakfasts to make sure your hangovers don’t get in the way of your important ‘cultural’ beer-drinking duties!
We spend 4 days exploring Germany. We visit Munich.

4 Day Itinerary
Oktoberfest Camping 4 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Your adventure begins with your check-in at the campsite in glorious Munich. First up you’ll have an orientation walk of the city with your guide, to help familiarise you with the numerous sights and activities on offer in the capital city of Bavaria plus you’ll get great discounts of traditional Bavarian outfits with your trusty Busabout wristband! Take as much time as you like to sample the local cuisine and explore to your heart’s content! This evening visit one of Munich’s traditional beer halls and get to know your fellow travellers over a few steins in true Bavarian style. Don’t go too overboard though; there’s an early start and a lot of fun yet to come!
This morning we catch our swift transfer to the festival grounds, to a celebration dating back to medieval times. Once the first keg is tapped the celebrations burst into full swing! We’re going to get there early, to make sure we claim a table and service amongst the immense crowds. Enjoy a few too many beers in the truly unique atmosphere of Oktoberfest, and you’ll surprise yourself with how quickly you pick up the catchy folk songs! Drink, sing and party with your new friends as the night rolls on. - Breakfast included
Head back for your second full day enjoying the festivities at the Oktoberfest grounds, or spend the day checking out Munich! We also have some great optional excursions on offer. For those wanting to explore the darker days of Germany’s past we also offer a tour of Dachau, the first of the Nazi concentration camps. On a lighter note, get your blood pumping and discover Munich’s hidden gems on a bike tour of the city, or take a trip to Neuschwanstein Castle and see the inspiration behind the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Enjoy your last full day in this incredible city, the kegs are still tapped so head off to the festival grounds and make the most of it! - Breakfast included
We check-out after breakfast. If you’re keeping the party going on our Hop-on Hop-off network, we’ll see you on the road. Next stop, the adventure of a lifetime! - Breakfast included
