After meeting and greeting each other, we shall head to a refreshment point for those with a thirst and embark on a 1.5hr city walk with, if desired, beers in hand (no open container issues in Germany!). We will take in many of the main sites including Marienplatz, the famous Hofbrauhaus and the food market, whilst talking about the significance beer has had on the lives of peoples through the ages. Munich's famous beer garden culture will be explained and lots of places for you to explore on your own at a later point will be highlighted. Then to the Beer and Oktoberfest Museum for a beer tasting and fresh baked Breztl (pretzel) followed by a tour through the museum itself, origins and significant developments of the Oktoberfest and refrigeration amongst a number of topics to be discussed, again...with a beer! We will conclude with a food platter (Brotzeit Platter), different cheeses, hams, salamis, pork, sausages and spreads, allowing you to try lots of the food that people take with them to beer gardens. Location subject to availability!
Hello! Originally from Staffordshire, England, I've been a full time tour guide for over 10yrs in Munich now, showing people the sights and explaining Munich's interesting and sometimes complicated darker history. I conduct English guided tours for other companies in the Beer and Oktoberfest Museum where we go on the tour and for other companies in the town, on a self employed basis, 3rd Reich, city walk and bike tours. Having first visited Munich 20yrs ago, and lived permanently Munich for 12yrs, I'll be able to help you with ideas and tips on other things to do in and around the area!
Dinner will either be, a large mixed cold platter with different cheeses, meats and spreads served with bread and pretzels,…
1.5 liters of Lager (3x500ml) during the walking tour and the 3x100ml tasters in the Museum are included in the tour. Just…
We will check out some off the more traditional local places the city has to offer whilst also ticking off the must see sites. "Butchers Row" is an interesting spot, having been meat sellers on that same location for over 700yrs! The Museum building footprint has been the same since the mid 1300's, owned by the Augustine Fund...explanation as to why drinking beer in Munich is indeed a charitable activity will all be explained!

Appropriate clothing and potential wet weather gear if the outlook is bleak
We'll meet at the bottom of the Glockenspiel Tower of the new town hall on Marienplatz (the tower with the figures half way up) and go from there! Keep an eye on the weather forecast and if rain is predicted, perhaps bring an umbrella or waterproofs!
