The last day’s included activity will be a dinner and beer at a typical Bavarian restaurant right in the heart of Munich. Bavarian fare does not consist only of sausages and sauerkraut. Oh no no mein Bruder, you’ll have the chance to sample hearty foods such as pig's knuckle, schnitzel, haxe, creamy sauces with locally produced mushrooms, suckling pig, creamy cheeses etc. This food is rich and tasty, just be prepared for a higher than normal fat content. Enjoy the moments in a hearty Bavarian restaurant atmosphere where the waiters are dressed in traditional Bavarian clothing and the pure joy that bursts from every seam during the world’s one and only Oktoberfest season.
Tschüß, bye bye und auf Wiedersehen!
We recommend using a backpack for your convenience, or a medium-sized suitcase if you prefer. A daypack is also essential for carrying everyday items. Space is limited on transportation, so there is a limit of one main piece of luggage per person. You will be responsible for carrying your own luggage. You must be prepared to carry your luggage up and down stairs, on and off transportation, and to hotels (max 15-20 mins.)
Please note that the apartments on this trip are quite simple, in traditional European style. They are located a few metro stops from the Oktoberfest action, but our travellers tend to appreciate the quiet neighbourhood for sleep. It is important to note that accommodation in Europe tend to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and rooms are generally old and may not have been renovated or maintained to the highest standard. Downtown hotels in Europe were not build to be hotels but rich owners houses, which have been changed into hotels. Therefore unusual room sizes are common as large rooms have been partitioned in the past, resulting in rather "thin" walls.Reception areas, rooms and bathrooms tend to be very small as they were often added into an existing room, and may have a hand nozzle rather than a conventional shower head. Staff can occasionally demonstrate less than perfect customer service. As accommodation is in short supply, hotels can charge a premium and there is sometimes little motivation to improve facilities. You can expect to find a clean, safe, simple accommodation in convenient locations.
Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip.
This G Adventures group trip is accompanied by one of our CEOs (Chief Experience Officer). The aim of the CEO is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. They will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge will add to the enjoyment of the places we are visiting - we think it's the best of both worlds.
