OKTOBERFEST THALKIRCHEN GLAMPING Double / Twin-share Tent
Map & directions
Not situated at Stoke Travel’s usual party campsite, we’ve got a different Glamping option for Oktoberfest, the world’s greatest beer festival and a firm favourite on every traveller’s bucket list. Big strong beers, German drinking food, dancing bands and carnival rides make the festival. Our Oktoberfest glamping packages take the best parts of festival camping and combine it with hotel comforts. Enjoy a cozy place to rest up for whatever chaotic festivities await you during waking hours.
Meet us there! Check out Omio for the best rates on buses, trains, and flights around Europe. Once you get to Munich, it is super easy to catch public transport to the campsite.

STOKE TRAVEL’S COMMON SENSE GUIDE TO STAYING SAFE AT THE CAMPSITE
*If at any time you feel unsafe, please don’t hesitate to contact the onsite Noble Security team, or any member of the Stoke Travel crew who will radio for security.
As far as situations go, a Stoke Travel trip is amongst the safest. Unlike in the ‘real’ world, everybody here is intent on having a good time with new and old friends – your fellow Stokies are way more likely to hold your hair back while you puke than steal your wallet.
That being so, we’re more in danger of hurting ourselves while on a Stoke Travel trip than falling foul of our fellow travellers. Here’s a quick little guide to partying safe with Stoke Travel.
- Drink plenty of water.
You’re going to drink heaps of beer and sangria, and you’re going to have a plenty big hangover, but you can really limit it by smashing a few cups of water throughout the day and evening.
- Remember to eat!
We’re going to hook you up with a hearty breakfast, depending on your trip, and as the bare minimum that should keep your stomach lined and engine running. Do not skip these meals, even if you are suffering horrifically from one of the aforementioned hangovers. We also strongly advise getting a lunch in there too, maybe even every day.
- Zip your tent up when you’re in it and when you leave it.
Seems basic, but you’d be surprised how often drunk us forgets to do this. When you get in your tent at night make sure you zip it up to prevent unexpected rain showers from disturbing your slumber. Same goes for when you leave your tent. It’ll take two seconds to zip it up, but that’ll save you from wet clothes, chafe, and maybe even pneumonia. If you also brought your favourite pair of socks and want to make sure they’re safe, you can purchase a lock from the guru tent for only €5.
- Don’t be a creep.
Like, seriously, has that ever worked out for you? Similarly, if you see somebody being a creep and making people uncomfortable let us know and we’ll have a friendly word to them. Sometimes they just don’t realise how gross they are.
- No means no, consent matters.
At a very basic level if you hit on somebody and they say no then you’ve just got to cop that. They’re just not that into you. It sucks for about three seconds, but you’re literally surrounded by hundreds of young, like-minded travellers. Suck it up and move on. When you do find somebody who’s into you and you want to move through the bases, make sure you get consent. It really, really, really, really, really does matter.
- If you see somebody having a bad time, make sure they’re ok.
We are all brothers and sisters and gender non-specific relations out here. If you see somebody struggling in any way, check on them, grab a Stoke staff member and just do what any decent human being would do.
Staying safe at Stoke Travel is super easy, but sometimes we get a little out of control and forget the basics. If you ever find yourself in any kind of situation do not hesitate to contact Stoke staff, or security, and we’ll sort you out immediately. We’re here to help – help you have the best time possible. Mwah.

- Cash. You may not be able to get cash out until you’re in the city centre, so better to come prepared than be left in the lurch

A DAY AT Thalkirchen
This is a rough itinerary of the Thalkerchin Glamping package. The beauty of staying with Stoke Travel is that you can do whatever you like, whenever you like, your way.
8-12pm – Breakfast
Chef prepared breakfast to get you all fuelled up for a day of drinking and mayhem in the beer halls. You can choose the way your eggs are done, have a hot shower and wake up slowly ready for the day ahead.
12pm (or whenever you’re ready) onwards – Head to the beer halls
Make your way to the Oktoberfest beer halls for a day full of antics. Ask the Stoke guides for directions, and meet us at the Augustiner-Festhalle tent! We’ll spend the day drinking, prost-ing eating and singing before some of us head back to camp to rest up, enjoy the sights and have some dinner at the cafe. Those who are still keen and feeling festive can stay and make their way back to the campsite later.
If you’ve stayed at the beer halls you can head out and explore, go on some carnival rides and see what Oktoberfest after dark is all about. If you’ve come back to camp for dinner, you can head back into the beer halls for round 2 and some carnival rides if it takes your fancy.
11pm – Party winds down and we rest up for tomorrow
The beer halls have closed for the night, and because we’ve been drinking all day, it’s time to resort to our tents for some much needed rest before we get up and do it all again tomorrow!
