Oktoberfest Tours

Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival and is held annually in Munich, Germany with more than 6 million people from around the globe joining in on the festival each year. The event has been around for over 200 years and was originally started to celebrate the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese. During the event, plenty of beer and traditional Germany food is consumed along with masses of people enjoying the abundance of amusement rides and games. So, don your lederhosen and dirndl, pick up that Stein (or Maß in Bavarian), get ready to sing traditional folk music with the locals and say “Prost!” (cheers) every other second. Oktoberfest is a festival that you need to go to at least once in your lifetime.
