Day 2 - Friday 22 September 2017
Arrival in Munich
Now the fun really starts. After arriving at the Munich camping ground "Thalkirchen" mid-morning you will be issued with your pre-erected tent and then you've got the day free to party. The Oktoberfest is already off and running, so after freshening up we head straight into the beerhalls and we're away!! Prost.
Day 3 - Saturday 23 September 2017
Dachau and Andechs tours and Beerhalls
After breakfast you can head into the beerhalls again or let us take you on a very sobering experience: a self guided tour of the infamous Dachau concentration camp, north of Munich. This was the first of its kind built by Hitler. In the afternoon we change the mood completely by taking you to the beautiful Andechs beer monastery - the home of the famous boch beer. Then it's back to the beerhalls for the night's festivities. These excursions - like all our shuttles - are free.
Day 4 - Sunday 24 September 2017
Munich ... more beer?
After breakfast you have a free day to check out the fantastic city of Munich - or you may care to have one last go at those beerhalls. We depart camp late afternoon and head north through Germany on a night drive back to the English Channel.
Day 5 - Monday 25 September 2017
Back to London
We catch a morning ferry back to the White Cliffs of Dover then on to London arriving back late morning.
