Every year, more than six million people attend Munich’s Oktoberfest, where music, pretzels, dirndls and giant mugs of beer abound. The 2017 festivities technically end on Oct. 3, but if you think you’ve missed your chance to go, you may want to think again.

Condor Airlines is currently offering $279.99 one-way nonstop flights, based on round-trip purchase, from Austin to Frankfurt through Oct. 5, getting you there just in time to soak in the end of the festivities. Condor flights include free checked baggage, meals, beverages and in-flight entertainment.

Unfortunately, the return flights are not as affordable, starting at $429.99. I priced a trip leaving Sept. 28 and returning on Oct. 5 that came to a total of $709.98, certainly not the cheapest fares ever but also not terrible if you have the trip of a lifetime.

Can’t make it this year? Don’t worry — Austin’s own Oktoberfest will be held Sept. 30.
