International Travellers Take on Europe’s Longest Pub Crawl During Oktoberfest

Australian-based touring company, Thirsty Swagman (, is initiating Europe’s longest pub crawl during Oktoberfest, bringing a limited number of travellers on an 11-night pub-crawling party across several European countries.

Kalamunda, Australia, April 08, 2008 --( Parties and pubs may make for common bedfellows, but when Australia’s Thirsty Swagman touring company ( plans a European pub crawl, they shake things up a bit. This year, during Oktoberfest, Thirsty Swagman will be offering an “adventure drinking” excursion for party-hungry travellers with Europe’s longest pub crawl.

The multi-country pub crawl will kick off in the beer tents of Oktoberfest 2008, and offers travellers an 11-night party across Europe. Members of the tour group will pay a visit to Munich, Maria Alm in Austria, Prague, and Dusseldorf (home of the world’s longest bar).

“This concept of combining international travel with pub crawling has never been offered before,” said Kenneth Hart, founder of Thirsty Swagman Pty Ltd. “This is a unique way to see some interesting places in Europe while having fun and meeting real locals at every destination.”

The record-breaking alternative travel outing has been dubbed the “Euro Hard ‘n’ Fast” tour. The adventure drinking tour is accepting only 24 people, and is a practical travel option for solo travellers or even a small group of friends.

“Every place we visit is unique,” says Karen Logan, Media and Online Manager at Thirsty Swagman. “For example, in Dusseldorf visitors can drink at more than 350 pubs and bars within a single city block. We’ll be taking our tour group there on Germany’s re-unification day when they can meet a lot of locals and other travellers, as over 100,000 people can pack those pubs that night.”

The Euro Hard ‘n’ Fast tour includes all transport from Munich through the end of the trip, 3-star twin-share accommodations (including breakfast), entry to beer tents, pubs and bars with discount drinks available at some, video production, t-shirts, and a bilingual party / tour guide. The price in Australian dollars is $2990 per traveller.
