Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 (Friday)

The trip departs Prague from Hlavni Nadrazi Friday morning. The meeting point is the Bus Departure point. Access to this point is by the escalators across from the Burger King. Please meet your trip leader 20 minutes prior to departure. Travel to Munich is by private luxury coach with A/C, DVD, and toilet. Upon arrival at our accommodations in Munich, you can store your luggage until check in later in the afternoon.

After your arrival, Bus2Alps trip leaders will be taking groups to the festival* or into the city center to explore Munich. If you are interested in purchasing the traditional dirndl or lederhosen, your trip leaders will let you know where to buy them in town. You also have an option to book the famous Munich Bike Tour that will bring you past the main sights in downtown Munich, through the expansive English Gardens, and make a pit stop for sausage and steins! Other places to see while in Munich include the Dachau Concentration Camp, Deutsches Museum, Munich Zoo, Olympic Park, and the BMW Museum. Consult your Bus2alps Trip Leader for how to navigate Munich and visit each site.

The night is yours to explore! Most of the festival beer halls shut down around 22:00. Munich has a diverse nightlife, so if you have the energy, it is worth checking out Munich’s bars and nightclubs. If you find yourself in need of a quiet night in, most of the accommodations in Munich have great in-house bars. Please keep in mind that we will be heading to the festival early Saturday morning.

*For the September 20th weekend, the festival begins on Saturday, September 22nd at noon when the kegs are tapped.

Day 2 (Saturday)

If you are interested in a day trip to the Neuschwanstein Castle, Walt Disney’s inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, we offer a day trip to the castle departing Saturday morning. This can be booked online before the trip begins or with your Trip Leader upon arrival.

Saturday is the busiest day of Oktoberfest. Bus2alps will organize a departure time for you to accompany your guide to the festival as early as 7:00am. Bus2alps does not make a formal reservation for beer tents. The spots are first come, first served in the most popular tents so we recommend arriving at the festival grounds early in the morning. At 9:00am*, the doors open and the first beers of the day are served!* You will then be taking part in the largest beer festival in the world, surrounded by people from all over the world and singing the traditional songs of Bavaria. Consult your Bus2alps Trip Leader for which tents are the most popular. If you arrive late and are not able to enter the tents, it is recommended to grab a spot in the outside beer garden until they start allowing more people to enter the tent. Bus2alps also suggests exploring Munich and going to the Dachau Concentration Camp, Deutsches Museum, BMW Museum, Olympic Park, and Munich Zoo. The night is yours to explore. Most of the festival shuts down around 22:00. Munich has a diverse nightlife, so if you have the energy, it is worth checking out Munich’s bars and nightclubs.

*For the September 20th weekend, the festival begins on Saturday, September 22nd at noon when the kegs are tapped.

Day 3 (Sunday)

Check out is at 10:00am. You can store your luggage in the accommodation’s luggage room, or lock them up in private lockers. Sunday morning is yours to explore Munich, or to head back for one more day of partying at the Theresienwiese. Sunday at the festival is more subdued and obtaining entrance into the beer tents at the Oktoberfest is easier. There is enough time if you wake up early to check out any of Munich’s great museums.

Your Bus2alps Trip Leaders will be organizing times early on Sunday morning to Dachau Concentration Camp. Entrance to Dachau is free as it is now a memorial site for those who lost their lives at the camp, which was the first concentration camp in Germany.

Please meet in the accommodation lobby at the designated departure time back to Prague as detailed by your Trip Leader.
