Oktoberfest 2017 Full Itinerary


Thursday, 21 September

Arrive Munich

Upon arrival you will be met at Munich airport by your local guide and privately transferred to the BMW Museum. The permanent exhibition covers a surface area of some 43,000 sq ft and houses more than 120 of the most valuable and attractive cars, motorcycles and engines from nine decades of BMW history.

Afterwards enjoy lunch in the museum’s M1restaurant before transferring to your hotel, Platzl Hotel München in the very heart of the city being only about 300 yards from Marienplatz and a stone’s throw away from the famous Hȏfbrauhaus. Later enjoy an orientation walking tour around the main sights which will include a visit to the Residenz, home of dukes, electors and kings from 1508 -1918; it has a wonderfully opulent treasury and the Cuvilliés Theatre created in the mid-18th century exclusively for members of the court. Dine this evening in a traditional Bavarian restaurant (7.30pm).


Friday, 22 September


After a relaxing morning depart independently to the festival grounds where you have a reservation at the Goldener Hahn tent which is inspired by a wooden mountain hut. There is room for 300 people inside and for 60 more in the garden. Traditional Bavarian poultry dishes like duck and chicken are available to accompany your beer and there will be live Bavarian acoustic music. Depart back to the city in the mid-afternoon.

Saturday, 23 September


After another leisurely start to the day return to the Oktoberfest site for a second visit to the Goldener Hahn. Again, either remain to enjoy the rides and spectacle of the festival or return to the city centre where you have time to enjoy more of the city before your final evening in Munich. You might wish to visit the Jewish Museum or, if weather is fine, the English Garden, the city’s enormous public park containing many beer gardens; the chines Tower Beer Garden has 6000 seats. Alternatively, the city has a wealth of excellent art museums, all close together: the Alte Pinakothek, containing 800 masterpieces dating from the Middle Ages, the Neue Pinakothek containing works from the 18th to 20th centuries, the Pinakothek der Moderne, containing works from the 20th century and the Museum Brandhorst for post-modernism. You might also wish to visit the Nymphenburg Palace which has lovely grounds and an exquisite porcelain collection.
