Oktoberfest 2013 Trip Review

This year's visit was another great success.  Due to scheduling logistics we only had one trip in 2013, but it was for a full week. We had a great mixture of 'newbies' and veterans.  The continued return of veterans shows the value of our service.  In addition, three of our Senior Oktoberfestians anchored the visit and provided the usual guidance and Oktoberfest expertise.  

​Our organized Day Trips included a trip to Berchtesgaden to see the Salt Mine and the Eagles Nest. Another pilgrimage to Kloster Andechs was also in order.  It was a beautiful day along the Ammersee as we visited the church, had lunch, and just enjoyed the vistas.

This trip was notable for several firsts.  We celebrated a birthday during the trip as well as a marriage. What a true experience.... a honeymoon at Oktoberfest. We were also able to visit two breweries; Paulaner in München and Riegele in Augsburg.  We introduced our travelers to the only 'after hours' tent at Oktoberfest, and actually closed Oktoberfest !  A true first.  

​Free time for our travelers included some visits to Englischer Garten and the Viktualienmarkt.  Food, fun, new people, and of course bier.  

Finally, what would an Oktoberfest Visit be without visiting the Wies'n?  Well, the team had plenty of time to enjoy the festivities, the music, and the tents.  We were also able to secure two tent reservations for our visit.

​The planning for 2014 is almost complete and we will be publishing our trips soon.  Please keep watching our Home Page and Trip Details Page.  Start your planning and we hope to see you next year.

Prost !
