RIDE WITH US FROM LONDON TO OKTOBERFEST

Is there a better way to travel than by train? Maybe plane for the long trips, but for middle distance trips train is the way to go! You can walk around, socialise, watch the world roll by, eat and drink and do it all with space and comfort. Stoke Travel’s Train is going to take you from London to Munich’s Oktoberfest via underwater. Let those suckers have their aeroplanes, we’ve got a mother-rolling submarine train. We choo-choo-choose to travel in style, baby!

The trip includes a round-trip train from London to Stoke Travel’s Oktoberfest campsite in Munich, three nights all-inclusive camping accommodation, tasty breakfast and hearty dinner every day, party guides and Stoke’s infamous Stoketoberfest, the festival within a festival all fuelled by our €10 all-you-can-drink beer and sangria bar.

How It Works

We’ll meet you at London’s St Pancras station and load you aboard the train. Spend some time meeting your fellow travellers, finding your comfortable seat, and settling in. The train is big, it’s as big as a train! So there’ll be plenty of space for you to stretch out, relax, chill out and watch London turn into countryside. To cross the channel into Europe we go underwater, but you probably won’t see any fish through the windows. As we cross the European continent take in the sites, lay down and sleep, or do both, before we arrive in Munich and take you to the campsite. Throughout the entire trip Stoke Travel guides will be on hand to answer any questions and assist you with elevating your beer bong or finding your seat. Once we’re in Munich you do the Oktoberfest thing for three glorious days, before jumping back on that beautiful train for the fun-filled ride back to London.

What is Stoketoberfest?

Each year, Stoke Travel makes Oktoberfest our own, by hosting a one-of-a-kind festival outside of the festival. Taking place around our Oktoberfest campsite accommodation, you’ll find Carnivalesque celebrations, amazing DJs, live music bands, and an open bar offering unlimited beer and sangria for only €10 per day. Last year we entertained 2500 international guests nightly, and Oktoberfest 2018 is set to be even bigger!

Make lifelong friends with our guides, bond with fellow Stokies, and party with some of the coolest humans on the planet on our London to Oktoberfest 2018 trip.

Please note we need one month notice of who you are travelling with if you wish to have seats allocated next to each other. Email info@stoketravel.com with their names and email addresses.

  • Home is where the liver is.

    Oktoberfest 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.

    Campsite Address:

    Campingplatz Obermenzing
    Lochausenerstrase 59,

  • 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 direct you onto 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 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?
    Stoke Travel provides secure lock boxes for valuables free of charge and locks are available for purchase for the tents from Guru Tent. We also have a giant container for small valuables which gets locked every night. Plus, if you have something that you would like us to lock up that you are particularly worried about, we will happily lock it up upon check in and return it at check out.

    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?
    They’re tents. But if you do want to get fancy, check out our Glamping option.

    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.

    When can I check in? 
    Check in: 14:00. Check 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 and 8:00-23:00 weekdays.

    Does the bus come both ways on one side of the road?
    What the F$%# ?

    Who are Stoke Travel?
    We’re the favourite choice for the backpacker on a budget, the student with some study abroad holidays to burn, the gap year gapper with a gap in their galavanting, the solo traveler looking for some soul mates or the group travel group. We cater to travellers from all over the world so you’ll be partying with people from over 70 different nationalities.
    Our Stokies want the most affordable experience worth top value at the world’s best and craziest festivals and destinations with an authentic feel, a flexible schedule and options to suit your budget.
    The best fiestas are easily accessible with our low cost, high fun trips. You could say travel parties and festivals around Europe are our jam.
