Prost! Join us at the world’s largest Folk Festival.

Be a part of the world’s biggest party in Munich, Germany. Known as the largest People’s Fair in the world, Munich’s Oktoberfest is also Europe’s largest beer-drinking event. 6-7 million people visit every year to join in on the merriment. Get access to some of Oktoberfest’s most exclusive beer tents and much, much more with Bucket List Events!

The Bucket List Oktoberfest Experience

Despite what our mothers told us, all those years of beer drinking have been good for something! When you head to Munich with Bucket List Events, you’re traveling with the locals: we’ve got sold-out beer tent reservations, the lowdown on the official Oktoberfest after-party, where the best sausage is, and even where to get some awesome vegetarian food. Our guests come from all over the world to enjoy Munich’s perfected beer, and they leave having made friends and memories for life.

When you’re in a tent of 10,000 beer drinkers and the band strikes up, you’re going to be standing on the Bucket List Events-reserved benches, arm in arm with 30 other friends, cheers-ing to the world!

My family and I (group of 8) just returned from Munich and Oktoberfest. It was an absolutely amazing experience. Much thanks must go to Nataliya, who helped arrange the whole thing for me. From our first interaction through to her execution of the event itself, her service was flawless. She is an exceptional host and organizer. In addition, her colleague on the day of the event, Angus, was a fabulous host and between he and Nataliya, every need of my family was seen to through our time with them. I'd thoroughly recommend Bucket List Events based upon my experience of working with them. Thanks again Nataliya and Angus...Prost!

Our group had an awesome time Saturday and Sunday at the 2019 Munich Oktoberfest! Nataliya went out of her way to greet us when we arrived at the train station to make sure we got to our hotel without problem. Not an easy task with 6 people plus luggage! Both Nataliya and Rich, along with all the other guides, were very attentive at our fest events. I couldn't have felt more safe! I would definitely recommend Bucket List Events to others!

Our group of six had a great 4 days In Germany. The Bucket List staff are all very knowledgeable and friendly. All of the events they planned for us were done professionally and on time. Our two nights at the Oktoberfest were awesome

We recently took a sister/Mom trip to Oktoberfest. The event is ginormous and we didn’t know where to begin in making our arrangements. Bucket List Events took care of everything for us. They put together the PERFECT package in arranging tent reservations, transfers and tours while in Munich. Their guides were knowledgeable and FUN! We had the trip of a lifetime! Thank you Bucket List!

Richard Poworski

We both enjoyed our Oktoberfest experience, thanks greatly to the folks at Bucket List Events. Thanks to Toby, Mike, Nataliya, and all the others who helped out. It was a great way to go - they made arrangements for our two nights at the different tents, made sure we had transport to and from the airport. The tour to the castle was awesome. We would highly recommend this company for any major events they participate in. Who knows... may be back again!

Loved experiencing Oktoberfest with Bucketlist Events. The options they offer make sure you get to fully enjoy the experience but leave room for some self-guided exploring as well. Thanks for a great trip!

I spent my 40th birthday at Oktoberfest in Munich & I have Bucket List Events to thank for taking care of it for me! If you’re looking for help in getting you squared away with different once in a lifetime events, trust me, these guys are the best! I was so impressed with how organized everything was that I look forward to using them again for other trips in the future!

Toby and his staff were incredible. We have everything arranged for us from airport pick-up's, great hotel where you walk outside and there was the Oktoberfest parade. The hotel location was key for us and being only 2 blocks from the festivities was great and the hotel was wonderful too. We had a lovely day touring 3 castles privately and our tour guide, Nico was amazing too. The trip was fantastic and Toby and bucket-list did a phenomenal job. Thank you for helping us create great memories.

Our group of 12 people enjoyed a wonderful trip to Oktoberfest in Munich thanks to Bucket List Events! All of the arrangements were wonderful, including the Beer Tent Reservations, the hotel, the supplemental tours and even the welcome dinner on the Festival Grounds. It was the trip we had all hoped for.
Our thanks go to the entire Bucket List Events Team!!

The best tour organizers and company we've ever dealt with. Toby, Alex, and "ElSalvadore" were all so helpful and fun to be with. Couldn't have asked for a better bucket list event than the Oktoberfest Munich 2017! We just went to our local fest and now we are very spoiled! Nothing can come close to the "REAL THING"!!! Ein, zwei...suffa!!!!!!!!!!!

Your hardest decision is do I go with Bucket List Events...because after that it’s all about fun! They give you the information you need and take care of all the details, Guten Tag.

OMG! I have been raving about Bucket List since I got back from my Oktoberfest trip! It was the best vacay of My Life! I will be using Bucket List again to go to Spain to Run with the bulls! The staff, the accommodations, well worth it. I believe I saved money doing my Oktoberfest trip with them.

Just got back from Oktoberfest 2018, and our 1st trip with Bucket List Events. The entire trip was a blast, the organizers were a great help and a ton of fun, and there was no shortage of things to do without feeling rushed or bored. Between the tent reservations, the bike tours, and the awesome crew, I can definitely say there's no way we could've packed in such a great time on our own.

Just one example of the amazing hospitality: Our flight arrived in Munich a little late for the welcome dinner, and we were half expecting to not be able to make it... however Fatima was waiting at our hotel to meet us and walk us to Augustiner-Keller to join up with everyone else for an incredible dinner & beer we easily could've missed out on otherwise.

I'll definitely be recommending you guys to friends & family, and would love to book more trips with you. Toby, Fatima, Nataliya, Kendra - thank you all for an awesome time and a week of great memories!

We had a 15 person trip to Oktoberfest this September and the whole trip, end to end was brilliant. All of our party was more than pleased with all aspects - BucketList Events exceeded our expectations and we are thankful for such a fun and smooth trip!!

Ryan O’Heron

My wife and I had a blast at Oktoberfest in Munich thanks to Bucket List Events! Kendra, Rich, and the rest of the Bucket List team were very organized, experienced, and had so many fun things planned throughout! It was so much fun getting to experience the best things germany had to offer in 3 days without all the stress and exhaustion required to research and plan something like it on my own! I especially liked how they spaced out the events so you got time to explore and do other things in addition to the events they planned! We will definitely be looking to plan another bucket list event in the near future!

Greg and I loved our time in Munich with Bucket List Events. Even before the trip, we knew we would be in great hands. Toby and his team were there from check-in to check-out to answer questions, provide recommendations and ensure everyone had a great time. The tent reservations were stellar! Greg and I both stated this will be a repeat trip for us in the future. Thank you for the expert planning and wonderful hospitality.

Loved our Oktoberfest experience with Bucket List events! Our small and large tent reservations were perfect and watching the parade from our hotel window was icing on the cake. Toby and team were excellent hosts - insuring our Oktoberfest time was a ton of fun?

Jeff Anderson

Toby and his staff did a amazing job, very helpful and made it a wonderful experience for our whole group of 18. And Oktoberfest was the most fun I have had in years. I will on another Bucket List tour for sure. And Toby, Kelley and I talked about our experience with Bucket List over and over again through the rest of our trip through Europe.

Toby and the gang were great at Oktoberfest 2018. Having them their to guide us to the tents was wonderful. They made sure we had reservations, no waiting, and made for a wonderful time. Their relationship with Mike's Bikes also provided some wonderful tours.
