The Experience

During Oktoberfest in Munich we will be welcoming hundreds of international students to our campsite and we are looking for an enthusiastic crew to help build this masterpiece. Before the festival starts we will be setting up the tents, inflating mattresses, and preparing sleeping bags, and after the festival we will break everything down as well. There will be plenty of time left to enjoy the biggest beer festival in the world.

Nicki, Yuri and Stella are awesome! Yes Trips gave me the opportunity to live the real Oktoberfest experience spending few money as I had all the meals and a tent in exchange for the working hours. They explained how the festival works and gave us all the tips to have an incredible time! Our tasks were mainly building tents and keep them cleaned to the guests. They were very flexible about the working hours, so we could enjoy the festival and have some free time to visit Munich as well. I highly recommend them as a host, they care a lot about the volunteers, so much love and fun!!!

Amazing place with amazing people. We worked hard in the camp and after a while we were already a family. I made a lot of good friends and the ones that were responsible for us took really good care of us. Our Oktoberfestcrew is the best!!

I had a wonderful time working at ESN Oktoberfest. Met a lot of great people, work was fulfilling and not too demanding, and was provided the opportunity to see Oktoberfest in Munich. One of the coolest experiences in my life. Thanks! Would recommend.
