Guided tour for groups

simply Oktoberfest

Stroll across the Wiesn festival grounds with an official City of Munich tour guide while learning all about the history and quirky facts behind the world’s largest folk festival.

So you think you know all there is to know about Oktoberfest? Then surely you know the answers to the following questions: What are the “Hirschen” (“Deers”) and “Haserl” (“Hares”) you find inside the beer tents? Which world-famous wild west hero visited the Theresienwiese not once but twice, each time to great success? And who went on to win a Nobel prize after a job helping to set up the festival?
