Bucket List Request for 3 Older Men to Experience Octoberfest in Germany

Jump to last reply

I have been asked by family members to research a potential trip to experience Octoberbest in Germany - 3 adult males ranging in age from 40 to 70. They are not as concerned about flight itineraries as they are about the location and language challenges. None of them speak German, although all are fairly experienced travelers.

Any recommendations for specific areas? I know Octoberfest is a widespread celebration over a period of weeks. They have mentioned Stuttgart. MY challenges (and I am not even invited) are to find a triple lodging room with access to public transportation that they can manage without speaking German.

Is this reasonable or do they need to drain this idea from their bucket lists?

I appreciate any and all responses.
