With more than 200 years of history and culture behind it, it’s no wonder that the Oktoberfest is the world’s largest and most famous beer festival.

This beer and Oktoberfest-focused walking tour of historical Munich will launch you into a time, long ago, when Bavarian royals ruled the land and beer shaped the course of history more than once.

When Oktoberfest begins, you’ll see the opening parade and the cracking of the keg and join in the merriment. You’ll drink beer, taste traditional food, take part in local attractions, listen to Bavarian music and explore the fair to your heart’s content. Finally, a visit to the dreamy historic Nymphenburg Palace will conclude your Bavarian adventure.
