Oktoberfest Weekend at Edelweiss Lodge and Resort

Its been almost 3 years since the last Oktoberfest happened on The Wiesn in Munich, but 2022 will be the year that the 187th Munich Oktoberfest makes its long awaited comeback.  This trip makes Oktoberfest easy for everyone.  Your Friday ride to Garmisch puts you in position for your Saturday shuttle to and from the festival grounds where you can enjoy the world famous festival, but before Saturdays festivities,, you will be able to enjoy Friday afternoon and evening in Garmisch.  A full nights rest after the fest allows you a relaxed and enjoyable ride home on Sunday.  Instead of an overnight bus packed with party people you will be able to relax and enjoy the ride after a refreshing nights sleep in Garmisch.

Kaiserslautern Outdoor Recreation has trips planned for all three weekends of the Oktoberfest.  The traditionally themed opening day of Oktoberfest is September 17.  By September 24 the vendors will have their routines down and Oktoberfest will wrap up at the end of the first weekend of October. Choose which weekend works best for you, but make your reservations at least 60 days in advance of travel to save $40 per adult.  

Oktoberfest is a world famous event and these trips will fill up fast. Don’t miss the 187th Oktoberfest, reserve your space today!
