Munich Bike Tour (3 hours):Meet your guide near Munich Central Station, put on your helmet, and then pedal through the streets, exploring the city just as the locals do. Your guide will stop frequently during the tour to share stories and trivia about landmarks and sights, plus you’ll have plenty of chances to take photos and chat with other people in your group.Cycling at a leisurely pace, follow your guide through the neighborhood known as Royal Munich, and wind your way past sights such as the Neo-Classical plaza of Königsplatz and the equally imposing Odeonsplatz. Hear how both squares were created during the reign of King Ludwig I, an extravagant ruler who sought to put Munich on the map for its European grandeur.Continue through the immaculate royal gardens into one of Europe’s largest city parks: the magnificent English Garden. Stop for photos by the Chinese Tower and enjoy a drink at the landmark’s beer garden. Then, pedal along the banks of the River Isar into Munich Old Town to explore the medieval streets around Marienplatz. After three hours exploring the city, work your way back to your starting point to finish the bike tour. Enjoy roughly 4.5 hours of free time before your evening tour takes place.Bavarian Beer and Food Evening (3.5 hours):Meet your guide and fellow revelers for a beer at Munich Central Station. After getting the lowdown on Munich’s beer culture and breweries, travel by public transport to the city’s Beer and Oktoberfest Museum, a site housed in Munich’s oldest residential building.Head inside for a tour and—yes, of course—more beer samples. Walk around with your guide to see exhibits that showcase the surprising role of Bavarian beer in the country’s history, and learn about Munich’s big-name breweries that export beer around the world. Hear how Oktoberfest evolved from a royal wedding celebration to one of the world’s premier beer and folk festivals, and check out antique beer jugs and drinking memorabilia aplenty.Leave the museum and continue to one of Munich’s traditional beer gardens for another drink and a platter of local snacks. The exact dishes differ on each tour, but tasty specialties such as bratwurst sausage and chewy salted pretzels are typical staples. Afterward, continue by public transport to your final stop at Munich’s famous beer hall, Hofbräuhaus. Here, steins of frothy beers are served by dirndl-clad barmaids and the resident 'oompah' band cranks out live festive tunes. Enjoy your final beer of the tour (own expense), soak up the atmosphere and bid your guide a fond farewell.
