What Is It?

Ein Prosit!

Which means drink you little legends. This festival is unashamedly about drinking beer, and we think that's absolutely wonderful! Oktoberfest has long traditions steeped in....beer, has long been the global benchmark in....beer and, well, beer, beer, beer.

But it's not just beer, unless you really want it to be. Our Oktoberfest is all about traditional dress (that make babes look even more babe-ish) and the finest of meaty treats, and dancing to Oompah bands and the giant sideshow with roller coasters and just being a part of the world's largest fair.

Beer just makes it oh so sweeter.

What's Stoketoberfest?

We have the biggest party outside of the beer halls everyday of the festival. With Stoke Travel you know you are always coming home to friendly faces (by the hundreds), plenty of beer, great music and delicious BBQs. We are also experts at the festival, and have been known to be the loosest, craziest, partiest people in the beer halls.

We call Stoke Travel's trips the unforgettable trips that you probably won't remember. This is because for an extra 10€ a day we serve you all the beer (or sangria) that you want. We call them 'welcome drinks'.

And when you're staying with hundreds of people, from all around the world, who, like you, are there to party, then you're bound to make plenty of new friends. Some of them special friends, special friends who might like to explore the inside of your mouth with their tongues. And if that sounds gross rest assured - it's anything but.

 

 

Location

 

Home is where the liver is.

Munich, Germany. The Oktoberfest grounds (Theresienwiese) are located in the centre of Munich.

The Stoke campground is just 20 minutes away from the madness. We'll have guides to take you on easy and cheap public transport available straight to our front door...

Address:

Campingplatz ObermenzingLochausenerstrase 59,
Obermenzing
Munich

When you get there, you'll find 2 person tents & mattresses (with sleeping bags) set up for your arrival. Just dump your stuff inside and grab a beer.We serve you up hearty breakfasts, and every 2nd day we fire up the BBQ, and make a party of it. No worries if you are vegetarian.

How To Get Here?

Pilots are the only sober people here (we hope).

All budget and major airlines fly to Munich from all over Europe and the world. Check out Skyscanner or Kayak for details.

It's very easy to get to the campsite from the airport. You take the underground S1 from the airport to Laim metro station.

Once you're at the Laim,  jump on the S2 in the direction of Peterhausen. Jump off at Untermenzing. Right outside the station take the bus for 3 stops to Campingplatz Obermenzing. Just ask the driver or have a look on the bus route map.  Easy peasy!

 

Of course it's efficient.

All trains entering Munich come in to the city's centrally-located main station (Hauptbahnhof), which is shared by the city's rail and bus systems, providing connections to all destinations within the city and around the region. High-speed InterCity Express (ICE) trains from Hamburg, Frankfurt and Augsburg provide rapid service to Munich. The City Nightline (CNL) features comfortable sleeping quarters on its overnight services. The Deutsche Bahn has more than 25,000 miles of track, connecting all points in Germany, with international service as well. To view their timetable, you can visit the website.  If your travel originates in the UK, British Rail has four daily scheduled trains to Munich, with journey duration of around 9 hours and including a ferry connection. From Zurich, there is daily service on the train called the Bavaria.

 

Buses are the bestest.

You can travel by bus to Munich from London, Paris and many other European cities. The largest bus operator from the UK to the continent is Eurolines, operating out of London's centrally located Victoria Coach Station. In Paris, Eurolines is located on rue Malmaison, a 35-minute Metro ride from the centre. In Munich, bus services usually terminate at the Zentraler Busbahnhof, which you will find on the north side of the Hauptbahnhof.

Please note that if you are coming by car, there is very limited parking at the campsite, so you will need to park down the road and either walk or catch a short bus back to the camp. You can drop your things off at the camp first.

 

 

FAQ

Questions and queries? Ask away. Enter in the comments box below and we will try to come up with something helpful here.

 

Where do the buses meet in Barcelona and what time?

Buses leave from Plaza Catalunya in front of the Hard Rock Cafe. The bus is a comfortable sleeper bus and the trip takes about 17 hours, depending on traffic with 45 minute compulsory stops every 4 hours. Weekend benders leave at 7pm Thursday from the same place and pull up at Stoke Campground, Munich at noon on Friday, ready to partay. Come Sunday crawl out of your tent and back on the bus at noon, arriving in Barcelona roughly around 7am on Monday morning. 

 

Where do the buses meet in Amsterdam and London and what time?

Please refer to the 'How to get here tab' for bus meeting places and times.

 

Are there shuttles to and from Oktoberfest? 

No but our guides will take you on public transport so you don't get lost, just don't stray too far. We find that no matter how many steins one has consumed, miraculously most of our guests come back safe and sound. Munich's cheap and easy busses and metro leave from the festival and takes you back to the campsite all day everyday.

 

Do you provide transport from Munich centre?

No, but getting around town is easypeasy thanks to Germany's efficient transport system. Check out the 'How to get there' section for address and direction details.

 

Who do we see when we arrive?

Check in at Stoke Reception tent for your tent allocation and orientation. The reception is open weekday mornings at 9am until midnight and weekends, 8am until 1am.

 

What is the breakfast like? 

Breakfast is usually the good ol' Aussie toad-in-a-hole .... translation: egg cooked in a hole in a piece of toast. Yum! Sometimes we mix it up and add beans or other gourmet ingredients. Whatever breaky is, it will be warm and will go down well with a beer or seven.

 

How many people can fit in the tents?

We have two-man, three-man and some 4 and 5 man tents and 10 man teepees. Just let us know your preferences on arrival and we'll do our best to allocate you the tent you would like (subject to availability). For those anti-social humans, we offer private tents for a small additional fee. We understand our guests' needs...... a little extra room for a special someone if the night leads there.   

 

What amenities are offered at the camp site?

The campsite offers spacious bathrooms and hot showers for a 1€ token purchased at reception, restaurant/cafe, vending machines, the best Shnitzel food cart in the world and a little essentials store. WiFi and charging stations are available in certain areas and tokens are sold at the campsite reception for laundry facilities.

 

Where can we securely store our valuables?

Locks are available for purchase for the tents and main reception offers small lock boxes you can rent. We also have a giant container for small valuables which gets locked every night. 

 

 Where can we buy Lederhosens and Dirndls?

We sell traditional festival costumes - you can pre-order these or add them to your booking onsite, as well as awesomely stylish Stoke hoodies, tee- shirts, beanies and knick-knacks.

 

If we are camping does that mean we'll be attacked by wild animals?

We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.

 

How can I lose my virginity?

Be confident, be cool, be calm. Hit up the drunkest babe for the best chance. Some may call this morally wrong, others,  ingenuous.

 

Where is Starbucks?

Near Haupthbhanof in Zentrum of Munich, there are plenty.

 

Do you guys have Skype in Australia?

Really.

 

Do the tents have hot water, laptops, power-points, king size beds or fridges?

There tents.

 

Does the bus come both ways on one side of the road?

What the F$%# ?

 

Is New Zealand part of Australia ?

As soon as they realise they're better off a state of Australia than a country only known to the rest of the world as the Lord of the Rings movie location.
