Oktoberfest is the largest beer festival in the world! As well as the beer tents it also has a huge theme park that really does take over Munich (and other places in Germany) for 16 days of the year.
Every year more than 6 million people join the party in the city of Munich. This leads to almost 10 million litres of beer being drunk, along with great food being eaten, and a lot of dances and laughs being shared.
This incredible festival has live bands, parades, a huge funfair that includes rollercoasters, and it's all held in high spirits celebrating Bavarian culture. Make sure to get yourself a Lederhosen or a Dirndl. Regular clothing will make you stand out like a sore thumb.
Booking a package with Contiki enables you to breakfast each day, transfers, a guided walk around Munich, and also the know how to help you at Oktoberfest. Picking the right tents and having a good crowd will improve your Oktoberfest experience.
They offer multiple options from Tents, to Hostels, to Hotels, so however you like to enjoy Oktoberfest, you are able to adapt the tour to suit you. Enjoy Oktoberfest, it really is packed with music, beer, good food, and good vibes.

I’ve often heard and read that Oktoberfest is “the happiest place on earth”. Now after being there a couple times I can safely that it must be a strong contender for that title. And how can it not be?
Pretty hard to not be happy standing on seats, stein in one hand, arm around your new German friend Günter who you met from the next table 1 song previous, singing along to some John Denver (namely “Country Roads, take me home”; heard at least 2 to 3 times a day at the festival).
Oktoberfest runs every year for at least 16 days starting in September. It ends on the first Sunday of October or on October 3rd, whichever is later.
So, you will be drinking steins, so these are 1 litre. So while they cost upwards of £10 a stein, it's not too expensive, and you definitely won't be going onto doubles and mixers in the tents.
In our opinion not, the problem with the tents, similar to at Running With the Bulls and similar festivals, is that you need to get a bus out of the city which can take a long time. Also, does anything beat a nice bed to sleep in when drunk?
1-5 Days is perfect for Oktoberfest. You don't need to be there for a week, unless you really are a die hard drinker and can pace yourself.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!

Meander your way through the grapevines and sample the finest bouqets on offer. What better excuse is their to fill your wine rack?
Despite serving a strange array of ingredients from cockroaches to "vomit fruit", numerous street stalls have even aquired michelin stars for their extraordinary dishes.
