Oktoberfest Package #2
4 Nights Sept. 15-19, 2017 [$1,495 per person]
With 4 full days in Munich, you'll have time to squeeze in some Bavarian sightseeing along with your amazing Oktoberfest Packages experience!
Observe two unique parades this weekend only - the Grand Entry Parade on Saturday and Sunday's Traditional Costume Parade.
Friday Sept. 15: Welcome to Germany! After you check-in to the hotel, we'll have a brief orientation and then start the festivities with a trip to the world-famous Hofbräuhaus. Raise your glass and toast the beginning of what may be the best weekend of your life!
Saturday Sept. 16: Watch the Grand Entry Parade of Oktoberfest Proprietors and Landlords as they make their way to the Oktoberfest grounds (Theresienwiese). The parade begins just outside of your hotel. Or choose to line up extra early (like 7am) at the Schottenhamel tent to catch a glimpse of the Mayor tapping the ceremonial first keg of Oktoberfest Beer. When you hear the cannon blast at noon, "O'zapft is!" That means "it's tapped" and Oktoberfest has officially begun!
Sunday Sept. 17: Today's Costume and Riflemen's Parade is truly a spectacle to behold. Delight in the colorful regional costumes dating back hundreds of years; you may even catch a glimpse of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. Follow the parade to the Oktoberfest to enjoy the carnival rides and vaudeville attractions.
Monday Sept. 18: Feel like getting away from Munich and the Oktoberfest craziness for awhile? Why not take a day-trip by train to the wonderfully romantic city of Salzburg, Austria, 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. Perhaps an excursion is not your thing? There is more than enough fun to be had back in Munich at the Oktoberfest.
Tuesday Sept. 19: It’s time to say Auf Wiedersehen to Munich as you head for home or move on to another fascinating destination.
