Incentive Travel Inspiration – Oktoberfest

Posted by Jo Kelly

Oktoberfest is, without doubt, the most famous beer festival in the world.

Hosted in Munich, one of Germany’s most well-loved cities, this amazing event welcomes more than five and a half million visitors to celebrate, enjoy and drink German beer.  The festival enjoys a relaxed and happy carnival atmosphere and is a great way to embrace the best of German culture.  Always a popular event on an incentives programme, a trip to Oktoberfest is a really desirable reward that your teams will be eager to experience.

This 16-day festival starts on 16th September 2017, with the last beer stein glass poured on 3rd October. It centres around a series of 14 enormous tents, each more fantastic than the last. From the Hacker-Festhalle decorated with clouds and stars and rocking to live music, to the Marstall decked out like a carousel and run by a gastronomically-renowned family; not forgetting the Schottenhamel where the whole event kicks off as the mayor taps the first keg.  Alongside these are numerous smaller tents that bring vast diversity to the celebrations offering all manner of delicacies including Bratwurst, cheese, pastries or Bavarian dumplings.

Those who really want to get involved can even get decked out in traditional dress, as many of the visitors do, sporting colourful lederhosen or Dirndl dresses as they tuck into a cool stein of beer and a fresh pretzl!

Oktoberfest really is a sight to behold and a huge amount of fun to participate in, so is the perfect short-haul destination to offer as an overall prize at the end of an incentive programme.

A visit to Oktoberfest is a feel-good trip that will create great memories for your staff, building loyalty in the process.
