Oktoberfest 2020 Weekend Packages

As you may know, Oktoberfest takes place each year beginning on the third Saturday in September and ending on the first Sunday in October. As a result, we are able to offer our Oktoberfest tour packages more than a year in advance.

Below are the incredible experiences we are set to offer in 2020. Don’t miss out on the trip of a lifetime!

Opening Weekend Package

Friday, September 18th – Monday, September 21st, 2020

On Saturday, September 19th, 2020, the beer will be tapped!

And just like that, another 16 days of partying kick off for our Opening Weekend Packages at Oktoberfest.

Opening Weekend Packages at Oktoberfest are a little bit different than the rest of the celebration. Oktoberfest starts with a parade on the second or third Saturday of September and commences at noon when the mayor of Munich taps the first barrel and cries “O’zapft is” (It’s open) after which party-goers join the drinking fest with a Prost! (Cheers!). Girls and guys alike dress in the traditional Lederhosen or Dirndls, respectively, and sing along with the ever-popular Bavarian drinking song Ein Prosit ein Prosit.

Let us put you where the action is during the opening of the Oktoberfest!


Package features:

  • Hotel arrangements by the Oktoberfest Grounds
  • Daily Breakfast at your hotel
  • Round trip Airport transfers
  • Large Beer Tent Reservation at Oktoberfest
  • Bike Tour of Munich
  • Small Tent Reservation on Opening Day
  • 2020 Oktoberfest T-Shirt and collector stein
  • Add on – guided trip to Neuschwanstein Castle (Additional night required)


If you are interested in attending for this segment, we would recommend booking as soon as possible. This portion of the festival typically sells out about 6 months before Oktoberfest gets underway. Since we pride ourselves on a personable service, we put a hard cap on the number of clients we book.

$1,495 USD per person

Joe Brandt

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!!

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!

I had an awesome time. Thank you all for such a great experience. And for my first trip overseas, I felt I picked the right group of people to guide me.

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.

I went to Oktoberfest with Bucket List. It was amazing. Our guide was fantastic. The group was fun and welcoming. I’m thinking about going again next year.

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?

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.
