Home is where the liver is.
Oktoberfest 2017 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.
Ride With Us!
Departing from London St Pancras, arriving in Munich, easy. Return train from Munich on Saturday, Sunday or Monday depending on your choice of dates. See Trip Options for details.
Please arrive 30 minutes before departures to check in.
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, 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 show you how to get their 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. Because you’re arriving on our London Party Train, your guide will help you get sorted with your tent!
What is the breakfast like?
Breakfast is whatever our in-house 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-person tents and 7-person 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. Please don’t padlock your tent if you haven’t paid for a solo tent upgrade (we will just cut it off).
What if I don’t want to walk 20m and I want to be tented next to my friend?
Check in at the same time and we’ll do our best to help with your separation anxiety.
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 (€2 for 10hrs) 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 the Guru Tent and main campsite 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, t-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?
They’re tents. However, book our Glamping option and some of these things will be yours.
Is there a guru to answer all my questions?
Yes! Head to our friendly and sometimes tipsy team at the Guru Tent. They’ll have answers on how to get to the beer halls, your breakfast/dinner tickets, your shower tokens, phone charging, what to do in Munich, and how to book your next Stoke Travel trip.Important campsite info.Reception hours: 7:00-24:00 on weekends, 8:00-23:00 weekdaysCheck in: 14:00Check out: 11:00(If you arrive earlier than 14:00, we’ll be happy to put you in your tent if it’s available and or keep you hydrated with beers while you wait.)How do get cash money?There isn’t an ATM at the campsite, so grab your cash beforehand or at the Oktoberfest festival.Where can I get my unlimited booze from?For €10/night you can enjoy unlimited beer and sangria at Stoketoberfest, available at our campsite bar. Open 7:00-23:00 on weekends, 8:00-23:00 weekdays.
Does the bus come both ways on one side of the road?
What the F$%# ?
