Why join us for this trip? Because it is only in late September and only in Munich that you can participate the centuries long tradition of the Octoberfest! Do not settle for second-best; travel with us to the place were the tradition has started and where it still is the most authentic Octoberfest experience possible: Munich, Germany!
Join us for the 186th edition of Oktoberfest in 2019 at traditional Oide Wiesn in Munich! The first Oktoberfest was held in the year 1810 in honor of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The festivities began on October 12, 1810 and ended on October 17th with a horse race. In the following years, the celebrations were repeated and, later, the festival was prolonged and moved forward into September. By moving the festivities up, it allowed for better weather conditions. Because the September nights were warmer, the visitors were able to enjoy the gardens outside the tents and the stroll over “die Wiesen” or the fields much longer without feeling chilly. Join us for the 186th edition of one of the greatest Munich traditions!
