Cheap Oktoberfest vacations
Fall is in the air, and with changing foliage and crisper temperatures also comes the famed Oktoberfest celebration in Munich Germany. While I have never had the opportunity to attend this giant 16-day beer festival that manages to attract about 6 million people annuallymaking it one of the largest fairs in the world. My father often recounts stories of his time at Oktoberfest, much of which was spent swinging from the rafters in the giant tents and drinking enough beer to make him ill for days afterwards. For those who are thinking about attending Oktoberfest this year, there are some great deals on cheap airfare to Munich that will have you drinking from steins and wearing lederhosen in no time. Don’t miss out an opportunity to visit Oktoberfest, Air France fares starting at $290 OW from Houston to Munich
If you are planning on heading to Bavaria for the giant celebration in honor of beer, but are trying to stick on a tight budget, you may be looking for hostels near Oktoberfest in Munich (less money on accommodations = more money for beer). While hotel rates also tend to jet jacked up during the festival, with a little time, energy and searching, you can also find a cheap hotel in Munich if you would rather skip the shared bathrooms and hostel party atmosphere.
While the millions of visitors who flood into Munich each year for festival will not get you away from the crowds usually missing during fall travel in Europe, this time of year is still an ideal time to get cheap flights to Munich and enjoy fall discounts.
If you would rather book everything together as part of a Europe vacation package, EuropeASAP is offering a six-night Munich Fall City Special starting at $1,049 per person (without taxes and fees).
