Home is where the liver is.
Oktoberfest 2016 is held in the centre of Munich, Germany, at the official Oktoberfest grounds Theresienwiese. This is where you will find the beer halls, fun fair rides and glorious Bavarian food.
The Stoke Travel campsite is ideally located within easy access to the Oktoberfest beer halls. Our group heads into the craziness every day via the cheap and easy public transport, which picks us up directly in front of the campsite. The Stoke Travel guides are there to guide you into the party and point you in the direction of the beautiful Bavarian beer.

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 websites for details. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the airport, just follow the metro directions below.
Train it – 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. If your travel originates in the UK, British Rail has four daily scheduled trains to Munich and from Zurich, there is daily service on the train called the Bavaria. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the train station, just follow the metro directions below.

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. It’s very easy to get to the campsite from the bus station, just follow the metro directions below.
Once you’re at the Hauptbahnhof, or any Munich metro station, take the underground S1 to Laim metro station, then take the S2 towards Peterhausen and jump off at Untermenzing. Right outside the station hop on the 164 bus for three stops to Campingplatz Obermenzing. Just ask the driver or have a look on the bus route map. Jump off the bus and you’re at our doorstep. Too easy!
The most WICKED, literally, way to get to Oktoberfest is in a Wicked Campervan. We have reserved spots for Wicked vans within the campsite. Check them out here.
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 about a 1 minute drive away.
Questions and queries? Ask away. Enter in the Ask a Question tab and we will try to come up with something helpful here.
What should we bring?
Something warm to sleep in, pillow and a torch for your tent, condoms (better safe than sorry!), your camera, an awesome party shirt.
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 public transport leaves from the festival and takes you back to the campsite all day everyday. But be warned… if you don’t buy a ticket, you can be fined 60€ (that is the equivalent of a whole extra day and night at Stoketoberfest!)
Who do we see when we arrive?
Check in at Stoke Reception for your tent allocation and orientation. The reception is open weekday mornings at 09:00 until midnight and weekends, 08:00 until 01:00. Out of hours, a security guard will check you into a tent and you can register with reception the next day.
What is the breakfast like?
Breakfast is whatever our inhouse chefs decide on the day… whether it be pancakes and bacon, egg and bacon rolls, bacon and bacon rolls. It usually includes bacon. And if you’re a veggo you can have non-bacon stuff. Our chefs are awesome. Bloody talented is what they are.
How many people can fit in the tents?
We have two-man tents and 8-10 man teepees. If you are a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. 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 Guru tent. There’s a restaurant/cafe, vending machines, the best Schnitzel 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 from Guru Tent 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 as well as awesomely stylish Stoke hoodies, tee- shirts, beanies and all sorts of other handy 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.
Where is Starbucks?
Near Haupthbhanof in Zentrum of Munich, there are plenty.
Do the tents have hot water, laptops, power-points, king size beds or fridges?
Does the bus come both ways on one side of the road?
What the F$%# ?
