Whether you’re in Munich for Oktoberfest or just want to experience its famous beer scene, this behind-the-scenes beer tour will give you the inside scoop of one of the city’s most renowned breweries. Beer brewing is an art in Germany, a centuries-old tradition that you’ll learn about with an experienced guide. Tour several breweries, meet the master brewers and enjoy a beer sample accompanied by a fresh Bavarian pretzel.
Meet your guide in central Munich and then head by coach to your first brewery of the day, either Spaten, Franziskaner or Löwenbräu. When you arrive, meet experienced brewmasters who will tell you all about the brewery's history and Germany’s beer culture.Learn how the beer is brewed according to the original Bavarian ‘Order of Purity,’ which follows the Bavarian Purity Law enacted in 1516 by Duke Wilhelm IV of Bavaria. This law ended ‘experimenting’ with ingredients and ensured that what went into beer was simple and restricted – only barley, hops, water and yeast. Enjoy tours of each brewery to see sights like their malting towers, brewhouses, fermenting tanks, beer cellars and wells. Then you’ll finally get what you’ve been waiting for – a beer tasting! While you sample the beer, you’ll also enjoy a fresh Bavarian pretzel.
