UPDATE 25/4: THE DATES OF OUR TRIP HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED! WE DEPART ON SATURDAY MORNING 16 SEPTEMBER AT 08H00 AND COME BACK ON MONDAY EVENING 18 SEPTEMBER AROUND 21H00. WE COULD NOT ANYMORE ARRANGE SEATS IN A BEER TENT ON SATURDAY (everything filled till the last seat!) BUT WERE LUCKY ENOUGH TO NEGOTIATE SEATS IN A SUPER TENT ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON, EVEN THOUGH VIRTUALLY ALL TABLES ON THE WEEKEND ARE TOTALLY SOLD OUT. THIS MEANS YOU MUST TAKE A DAY OFF FROM WORK AS WE TRAVEL BACK ON MONDAY. WE SIMPLY DO NOT THINK IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO TRAVEL BACK TO BRUSSELS AFTER HAVING VISITED THE BEER TENT ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON… 🙂
IF YOU WANT TO JOIN, PLEASE PRE-REGISTER SO YOU CAN RSVP AS THE FIRST WITH A DISCOUNT.
THE BELOW TEXT WILL BE ADAPTED SHORTLY.
Expat Club is working on a fantastic trip to the world famous Oktoberfest in München (Munich). We are in the process of securing a STRICTLY LIMITED number of scarcely available seats in one of the best tents at the Oide Wiesn, the heart of the Oktoberfest.
Munich, a beautiful German city that hosts the famous Oktoberfest
We currently are planning to leave on Friday evening around 18h00 from Place Schuman. This way you will not have to take a day off from work. We will be driving until around midnight before we check-in to a basic 2- or 3-star hotel that is on our route to Munich. In the morning we continue our journey to Bavaria’s capital, where we will arrive around noon in a basic 3-star hotel. Note, the hotels in the city itself are unaffordable (€300-€1000 for a 3- to 5-star hotel per night!), therefore we stay outside the city. For instance, near the airport that is well reachable by bus.
A famous beer tent
After checking-in (if possible this early) we will continue by bus to the city center, where we will start with a guided tour through the Old Town. In the later afternoon we have reserved seats in one of the best Oktoberfest tents. where we will stay for a few hours to enjoy the beer and food together. Put on your Lederhosen (gents), or put on your dirndl (ladies) and party with us.
We are aiming for Friday 22 to Sunday 24 September. However, we may also go 1 week earlier, or 1 week later, depending on availability of the guides, hotels and beer tents.
It is hard to give you a good estimate for this trip at this point, as much depends on the prices we can get for the hotels and tables. Those are understandably very high due to the enormous demand. It is also 800km, which adds significantly to the costs. You should therefore count on at least €350-400 per person for this weekend trip, including transportation by comfortable 4* luxury coach (with some drinks & snacks), 2 nights hotel with breakfast, guided tour in Munich, tent access (with beer & food!) and transportation from/to the hotel on Saturday.
We have received a very high number of requests for this particular trip, but we will surely go with a LIMITED number of people (48-50). You can now pre-register for this trip. This is free, but we only ask you to do so if you are seriously considering to join us. It helps us nothing if we get many people on the list who are not serious or who click on the RSVP button to “support” Expat Club. We just need very good estimates. Once you are pre-registered you will be the first to be informed once we open up the trip for actual reservations. Also, you will be able to enjoy a super early-bird discount.
Hotel & room sharing
As said, hotels are incredibly expensive during these days. We are trying to get the best options. During this trip we will again offer the room-sharing possibility in twin rooms (a room with 2 separate beds). If you are travelling with another friend, you can use these rooms. And if you are travelling alone, Expat Club will introduce you to another lady or gentleman with who you can share the room to avoid the expensive single surcharge. This is a perfect and a highly appreciated service (based on feedback from previous trips). Expat Club members are all adults (mostly aged 30 – 60 years). Note that we will not assign a room partner, but simply connects the group of people in the same situation.
