Oktoberfest 2018

Munich, Germany | 20th September - 8th October 2018

Ein Prosit at Oktoberfest 2018!

You know what Munich’s Oktoberfest 2018 is. The world’s biggest beer festival featuring the world’s tastiest beer (served by the litre), accompanied with hearty German cuisine, carnival rides that rival a beer-soaked Disneyland, and vast beer halls where German oompah bands encourage more than 6,000,000 like-minded party animals from every corner of the world to dance on tables and make best friends for life.

Every Oktoberfest, Stoke Travel hosts more partiers than anyone eltse in Munich. Thousands upon thousands of likeminded individuals from all over the world enjoy our all inclusive packages, including pre-erected tents with mattresses and sleeping bags, a tasty breakfast each morning and a hearty and wholesome dinner each evening; awesome guides who will show you how to get to – and experience – the Oktoberfest beer halls, not to mention our world-famous Stoketoberfest party, the biggest event outside the beer halls, fuelled by our legendary €10 a day open beer-and-sangria bar. This is a beer-fuelled paradise on Earth.

Join us for as long as you want from September 20th to October 8th. We’ll be waiting for you in Munich, or take advantage of our London-Oktoberfest party train, or our private round-trip coaches from Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Budapest, and Italy.

EIN PROSIT AT OKTOBERFEST 2018!

Ein Prosit is German for “cheers”, something you’ll be doing often at a beer drinking festival. Oktoberfest is Germany’s unashamedly boozy beer festival filled with all the stereotypes that you expect of it, including:

  • Happy, merry, often beerbelly-sporting, Munich locals, young and old, families and groups of friends and coworkers, singing, cheersing, drinking, dancing and eating together. They love the Oktoberfest, and they don’t mind having us along for the party. Join them on their tables and let the good times flow.
  • Buxom Bavarian babes wearing low-cut dirndls carrying stacks of litre beer glasses at a time, we’ve seen them carry 15 at a time! With a smile. Make sure you tip them.
  • Red-faced oompah bands blasting singalong drinking songs, encouraging the crowd to PROST and drink more, while the assembled sea of revellers squeeze and grind their way onto the dancing tables. They play the same songs every day, but gee they’re great songs.
  • Glaze eyed, beyond happy tourists clinking glasses with equally stoked locals, arms over shoulders, slurring confirmations of their newly forged drunken best-friendships.
  • Full-time kitchens churning out constant streams of perfectly seasoned chickens, gravy-drenched pork, steering wheel sized pretzels, and radishes (radishes?) with the efficiency of a fast-food drive through, but at a quality that would put even the most culinary of grandmas to shame.
  • The beer. The beer is everything you’ve imagined it to be and then some – delicious amber ale served crisp and cold, free from all artificial products and preservatives and served by the litre. And trust us, after one litre even the darkest of moods will be transformed into a fuzzy kaleidoscope of good times after your second you’ll be the best singer and dancer the beer halls have ever seen. Whatever happens after that is anybody’s guess.
  • And that’s just inside the beer halls! Outside these hallowed halls awaits a magical wonderland of skipping and stumbling families and singles, eating and drinking and playing carnival games and testing their stomach on wild rides as impressive as those in any of the world’s theme parks.

It is all this that makes Oktoberfest a party that should sit at the top of your bucket/to-do lists. This is one festival that everyone, even the teetotallers, should do at least once in their lives. And when they do, they should be with Stoke Travel, because nobody has as much Oktoberfest fun as us.  

WHAT IS STOKETOBERFEST?

Located in Munich’s Obermenzing neighbourhood, Stoketoberfest is Stoke Travel’s Oktoberfest destination and by far our biggest event of the year. Stoketoberfest is Munich’s only all-inclusive accommodation option, Oktoberfest’s biggest party outside of the beer halls, a temporary home for more international partiers than anywhere else in Munich, a safe space where you are free to be whoever you want to be and do whatever you want to do, the meeting place for all of your new best friends, the place where our chefs line your stomach before and after a big day in the beer halls and the wildest dancefloor this side of Ibiza.

Stoketoberfest is Stoke Travel’s biggest event of the festival season, a place where we can entertain, accommodate, feed, serve beer to, dance with, dress in lederhosen and dirndls, and, above all, get to know more than 2500 individuals on any given night, from 40-something countries and all walks of life, representing anyone from 18-years-old to their grandmothers (who come for free).

The camping accommodation includes pre-erected tents, sleeping bags and self inflating mattresses. That’s every tent for everybody at no extra charge. If you want to sleep in a little luxury, then maybe our Glamping options are for you, with plenty of space and more comfortable beds, electricity and other creature comforts. Beyond the rows of tents Stoketoberfest’s kitchen churns out cooked breakfasts and dinners every day for everybody, the Stoke stage featuring DJs and bands and our very own radio show (you’re the star!), the Stoke Spinning Wheel offers you the chance to swap underwear with a stranger, drink out of your shoe, or win a free trip and all the Stokies, whether staff or traveller, there waiting to knock you over with a travelling story, listen to your tales of drunken misadventure from the previous day’s partying or get you prepped for another big one in the beer halls. All of this, and more, is included in every Stoke Travel Oktoberfest stay.

Then there’s the bar, the open bar, the all-you-can-drink* beer and sangria bar that does demand a €10 a day surcharge, but will promise all the liquid confidence and social lubricant that any aspiring Oktoberfest legend could ever need. If beer is the last thing you’re thinking of at this very moment, the onsite coffee cart might be more up your alley, or perhaps you’d like to try on some traditional German Oktoberfest outfits from our very own store, where you’ll find something for everyone at a price that’s cheaper than in town.

And that’s just a taste of what’s on offer at Stoketoberfest. Every year we come up with new and crazy ways to make our little corner of Munich more pleasurable for travellers. We really pride ourselves on creating the funnest environment away from the official party and then filling it with absolute legends like yourself. Want to know what we’ve got planned for this year? Well you’ll have to book Oktoberfest 2018 and come and see for yourself.

* During opening hours and within reason. You can shower in it, but we can’t serve you if you’ve forgotten your own name.

    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.

    Metro directions

    Directions from the Munich Airport
    If you arrive on the airport you can take the S1 train or S8 train. If you take the S1 train, get off at Laim train station to switch to the S2 towards Petershausen. If you take the S8 train, you can change at any station between Ostbahnhof and Laim to the S2 towards Petershausen. Once on the S2, jump off at station Untermenzing. Right outside the station hop on the 164 bus for three stops to Campingplatz Obermenzing.

    Directions from Munich city centre
    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!

    Wicked Campers

    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 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 Oktuberfest!)

    Who do we see when we arrive?
    Check in at Stoke Reception for your tent allocation and orientation. The reception is open daily from 08:00 to 22:00. 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 8am to 11pm.

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

      The directions to the campgrounds were good as were the directions/transportation/beer bong sendoffs from the campgrounds to the festival. The camping in October is a little cold, but the tents were set up well with mattresses and sleeping bags so no complaints, the atmosphere was great, oktoberfest was a party from the moment i woke up in the morning to the moment i put in my earplugs and tried to pass out at night!

    • neal says:

      So fun, the rain bummed people out, so the music should have been cranked to 11 and to dance. Could have closed the bars at 1 instead of 12 also (which would really mean close at 2 because you guy are too awesome)
