    Itinerary

    Day 1: Arrive Munich

    Welcome to Munich! Get ready for a week of fun at one of the world’s most famous festivals, Oktoberfest. Arrive at the campsite any time between 8:00am & 12:00pm - our expert Contiki On-site Team will be on hand to show you to your tent & answer any questions you have. Later, if you’re feeling up to it, check out Munich & get the party started!

    Day 2: Munich

    There’s so much to see & do in this city, so make the most of your time here. Oktoberfest has been an annual event in the Bavarian calendar for more than 200 years, so make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action. Take your place at one of the festival tents & get into all that is Oktoberfest. If you’re feeling like going local then girls don a Dirndl & guys get into your Lederhosen (traditional costume) to really get into the spirit. Food is also a central part of the festival & not to be missed. Try some German treats like Pretzels, Wurst, Sauerkraut or pork knuckle, there really is something to tantalise any taste buds here. If you feel like a bit of time out from the buzzing beer halls, head to the market stalls for some other German treats. A huge amusement park is also a feature of the festival so don’t forget to jump on some rides while you’re here. From the central Marienplatz (market square) there’s heaps of other things to do & see while you’re here. Located right in the heart of the city, it’s a hub for shopping, has a variety of places to eat & many historic sights within easy reach. Marienplatz is also home to the Old & New Town Halls, once the centre of the political heart of Munich. There’s also the spectacular Hirschgarten nearby, with its amazing 8000 seat beer garden. Don’t miss out on a visit to Olympic Park, home to the 1972 Olympic Games, where you can climb the Olympic Tower for awesome city views. There's also the option to join a guided bike tour and see the famous sights as you learn the fascinating history of the city. If seeing some history is on your agenda, then don’t miss the Alter Hof, Munich’s medieval castle, one of the most beautiful locations in the city, or you could Or ask your Contiki team for some other tips on things to do in the quaint nearby towns & villages. If you’re feeling like a day out & about, explore even more of Europe while you’re here. A day trip to the Dachau Memorial Concentration camp is just one of the options Contiki offer if you feel like something different.

    Day 4: Depart Munich

    Time to say farewell to the fun times had in Germany! Say goodbye to your new friends, as your tour ends this morning after breakfast.

    Sophie was amazing and did her best to give my group all the information she had and made sure everyone had options and ideas of what was happening throughout the whole trip. Making sure everyone felt included and safe. Would definitely recommend this trip for travellers who want a slow pace trip but still with all the contiki fun.

    European whirl was incredible and the activities were the best. The bus driver was great and helped keep the bus in great condition. The trip manager was definitely a highlight. He knew somthing about everywhere we went including little things such as where to find ATM's or great places to eat. He also came out at night to make sure we all made it back to our accommodation.

    The trip was amazing. Ish is the best manager, such a nice guy, and always helped out where he could. The activities were great, including the optional add on ones. The only downside was the hotel In cancun which was a bit average, but that didn’t stop us doing anything or enjoying ourselves!

    Let me start by saying that I did not even get the chance to go on this trip. A week prior to my trip to Spain, an immediate family member of mine become ill with imminent death. I was unable under the circumstances to travel and wanted to cancel my trip and was willing to reschedule for a later date or get a credit. This was a very expensive trip for both my sister and I, taking us years to save up for it. The response we received from our agent is that Contiki is not willing to postpone the travel, even after we were willing to pay an extra fee. This tells me that this company is GREEDY and HEARTLESS. My family member has since passed away, 3 days before my departure date which was supposed to be on July 2nd. I even went to check the Contiki website and was shocked to see that my trip which was previously full, has now opened up spots to fill our place. Now, not only are they keeping the money of 2 young hardworking people, but also making money off filling our spots!! I've never experienced such injustice and mistreatment from a company in my entire life! This company has no sympathy and ZERO understanding for a situation as devastating as death. My sister and I were so excited to go on this trip and were very upset by the timing of our situation... but how can you control when a loved one will pass??????? SHAME ON YOU CONTIKI. If nothing is done to resolve this unfair policy, I will make sure not to recommend your tours to anyone.
