·         What is a typical day at Oktoberfest
o   The main group will be inside the Hacker Pschorr Festzelt tent all day from 10am-10:30pm.  Food is available inside the tent and it is really good. You can also walk around the Oktoberfest grounds (like the fairgrounds) and pick up food.  We will get pizza at the end of each night. It is just across the street from the tents.
Saturday we have reservations beginning at 6pm so you can sleep in
o   There are huge carnival rides, games, food, and people watching to allow you to take a break when needed throughout the day. Because you are with our group, wearing our shirts you will be able to get in and out of the tent throughout the day. Other people can not get back in once they leave the tent.

o   Typically we do a Munich bike ride on Saturday or some other touristy thing to see a bit of Munich which allows you to tick off the box for "seeing Munich"
