Visit Oktoberfest like a local - on the weekdays when the crowds are slightly less chaotic.
Our Mid-Week Package (Sept. 24-28, 2018) gives you 4 nights in Munich for only $1,295 per person.
Monday Sept. 24: Welcome to Germany! After checking in to the hotel and a brief orientation, we'll start the festivities in one of Munich's most notorious beer halls, the Hofbräuhaus! With a beer in hand, we'll toast to good friends, old and new, and the beginning of a beautiful relationship with German lager.
Tuesday Sept. 25: Treat yourself to a day-trip by train to the wonderfully romantic city of Salzburg, where the hills are alive with the sound of music. Salzburg is not only a famous movie set, it’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the birthplace of Mozart. Or discover the joys of Midday Oktoberfest while prices are a bit lower on food and rides.
Wednesday Sept. 26: Today is a great day for exploring Oktoberfest; the sights, the sounds, the smells! Revel in the fact that you are surrounded by a tradition over 200 years in the making. Or choose to leave the hustle and bustle of the city on a fascinating day-trip by luxury coach to the gorgeous Bavarian Alps for a tour of King Ludwig II's fairy-tale castle, Neuschwanstein with a short visit to the charming town of Oberammergau.
Thursday Sept. 27: Spend today at your leisure, perhaps by renting a bicycle and exploring the Bavarian capital on two wheels, or joining a tour to learn more about Munich's dark past when Hitler's Third Reich tried to take over the world.
Friday Sept. 28: It's time to say Auf Wiedersehen to Munich as your tour comes to an end after breakfast.
