Itinerary

COLLAPSE ALL EXPAND ALL

Day 1

London to Munich

This is going be a week to remember. The Vibes will be at an all time high as we join forces in London and get ready to hit the road; our Oktoberfest extravaganza kicks off NOW! You didn't think this trip would be ALL about the beer halls and pickled ham, did you? Gosh no. We have to cram in a bit of sightseeing on the side. First spotting: the White Cliffs of Dover in all their chalky brilliance.

    Haus International (or similar)

Day 2

Munich

After crossing pretty French terrain, we find ourselves in Germany - feel free to let out a team scream as we pull up at the Bavarian capital of Munich. Get comfortable in our new digs, and use the remainder of this day to catch up on rest or start joining the festivities, depending on your level of determination to make every minute count. But first, an orientation of the city, and your chance to pick up a dirndl or lederhosen for those keen to dress like the locals. Here are some facts to get you in the know: There are 14 main tents, the biggest holding 11,000 party people, so get your checklist as you make your way through as many as you can. It's been said that each year over 7.5 million litres of beer are guzzled, 500,000 roast chickens are eaten, and approximately 50,000 pork knuckles are consumed. So help those statistics and get eating!

Day 3

Munich

This is your chance to experience first hand the famous antics of a 200 year old beer fest. Over the next few days hop between festival tents and amusement rides & sample the many beers that make this such a loved affair. Take advantage of the additional activities up for grabs to mix things up and ensure you see the full picture of the city. You can get a fix on the ins and outs of the city with an optional bike tour of the city to get all new views (and take a break from the beer tents). They say that the more you learn about the past, the better prepared you are for the future, and with this in mind we include a trip to Dachau concentration camp, to pay tribute to the victims of some horrific acts that took place so many years ago.

Anyone for St Patrick's Day in Ireland?
