Between September and October something incredible happens in Munich. Lovers of beers, Bavaria and parties create the best festival around!
Festivals can be pretentious. They’re about what you’re wearing, who you know, and where sells the vegan-friendly-artisan sushi. But then there’s Oktoberfest. Instead of trendy Raybans, there are giant glasses of beer. Hip bands are replaced by people shouting old drinking songs. And in place of the falafel stands, there are neon-lit festival rides and gigantic sausages. It’s 100% unadulterated fun! Join this trip and go to the festival where the enjoyable is more important than the fashionable.
We spend 4 days exploring Germany. We visit Munich.

4 Day Itinerary
Day 1: Munich
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. We'll finish our night in a traditional Beer Hall ready to party the night away.
Day 2: Munich
We head down to the Oktoberfest grounds for another day! Hair of the dog has never been more relevant! Soak up the Bavarian culture, bike tour, enjoy some of the festival rides...the choice is yours. It's important to get there early as they fill up fast. Our suggested tents include The Lowenbrau, Hofbrau (watch out for the pig-pen), Augustinerbrau and the Schottenhamel.
Day 3: Munich
Join our optional day trip to one of the most stunning parts of Bavaria, King Ludwig's famous Neuschwanstein Castle. This region is absolutely breath-taking and the castle itself was used as a model for Walt Disney's Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
Day 4: Munich
The time has come to say Auf Wiedersehen to your beer buddies. Check-out by 11am.
