After checking in to your accommodation in central Munich, you will be met by an experienced guide for a 2-hour walking tour of Munich. See top attractions such as the famous Marienplatz square, and shops selling traditional Bavarian outfits of lederhosen and dirndls – the perfect adornment to blend in with the locals during Oktoberfest! In the evening, you will visit a recommended beer house in Munich, so you can start tasting beer mugs that will be the star of your weekend!
Depart early the next morning for the Oktoberfest site, and soak up the party spirit. Known locally as "Wiesn", Oktoberfest began in 1810 when it was created to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig II of Bavaria to Princess Therese of Saxony. Taking place almost every year since, the beer festival has become one of the biggest parties in the world, and free seats in the beer tents are notoriously hard to come by! Ideally, your 4-day package includes coveted seats in the famous beer tent, the Lowenbrau.
In total, the Oktoberfest site contains 14 beer tents, and your knowledgeable guides will be happy to share their recommendations. They all serve hearty German food with obligatory mugs of beer, so be sure to try the traditional specialties of Bratwurst (sausages) or Wiener Schnitzel (veal breaded) to soak up the beer! Rides and carousels are also available within the grounds, providing entertainment against a backdrop of oom-pah music and the joviality of the Oktoberfest crowd.
For fans of Bavaria's quieter side, swap your second day at Oktoberfest for a day trip to Neuschwanstein Castle. The day trip to Neuschwanstein includes a coach transfer from Munich.
