October Events

17th September - 3rd October, Munich - Germany

Octoberfest is a personal Mecca for beer lovers everywhere and any beer fanatic must visit at least once in their lifetime. Essentially a two week festival of experimenting different beers and foods, coupled with the 14 different tents, you are spoilt for choice. It is however fundamental to realise this is not just a two week booze-fest and can be very enjoyable for all ages, with performances and rides happening throughout the whole two weeks (with 2 special family days with discounted prices for these events) and furthermore traditional events such as the religious mass and brass band are not to be taken lightly and are a fundamental part of Oktoberfest.

Regional Editor Sharla found time during the planning for Oktoberfest to uncover Hotel Achterbahn (Rollercoaster) - 8 rooms for 8 emotions:

Melancholy, Bliss, Presumption, Ecstasy, Relaxation, Fear, Enlightenment and... Flush (huh?)

Their motto goes like this: 

A ride on the rollercoaster can be many different things. Jump on . Convince yourself.

FYI : Bliss and relaxation are rooms with 4 beds.

And if you really want to book a Hotel Achterbahn room for Oktoberfest THIS year? Sadly, the answer is: NEIN! 


27th-31st October-UK

Whether you are a 'macho' man or a real scaredy cat when it comes to horror, this will send chills up your spine and give you sleepless nights for years to come. From the weekend before Halloween, there are several Ghost hunts, Haunted Sleepovers and Mystic Dinners, that are held in dozens of destinations (including Prisons and Castles) around the country.

A true go-to if you want a night you will never (perhaps unwillingly) forget. To book or investigate further click here.

For the faint hearted, why not stay in an Unusual Prison hotel?

Jazz on the 6th October - Frankfurt, Germany

The jazz concerts celebrating the Day of German Unity have been very popular with Frankfurt’s population, attracting many thousands of revellers from the very start. The idea of "Jazz zum Dritten"  (“Jazz on the Third”) has proven to be a very good one, confirming the deep roots that jazz still has in the Main metropolis. Frankfurt am Main is known to be Germany’s leading centre of jazz music.
