Munich Oktoberfest – how it all began:
A medieval royal wedding was reason enough, to be simulated in a daily carillon at Munich’s Marienplatz. Some Wittelsbach generations and centuries later there is another wedding – this time outside the town walls of the city. There is a need for more space in order to stage a horse race in honour of the newly-weds. If the young bride, Princess Therese of Sachsen-Coburg-Hildenburghausen ever dreamed of this event once becoming the world’s largest fair? Would she ever have said “I do”? We don’t know.
What we know is a lot about history and many stories that are told about Munich’s Oktoberfest. Our private walking tour will lead you through the rush and stir of the fair grounds along show ground businesses with long tradition to the trendy fun rides, and we will also tell you numbers and facts.
Of course, it is all about beer, too. Hectolitres are running down thirsty throats in the “beer temples” on “Wirtsbuden Straße” and hilarious anecdotes originate from a long-lasting stay in one of the beer tents. You can be sure, we will share some of them with you.
Come along on a private Oktoberfest tour of the special kind – informative, funny, comfy, Bavarian. A walking tour for all ages.
