This year we will experience Oktoberfest through two very different festivals – the Oktoberfest in Munich and the Cannstatter Volksfest in Stuttgart. We will take a break between the two festivals and explore Bamberg, one of the most beautiful and friendly towns in Franconia, where we will visit many of the breweries in and around the area.


We begin our trip in Munich where we celebrate the world's largest and most recognized beer festival – Oktoberfest. For 3 days we will visit and experience the beer tents of Oktoberfest as well as breweries and beer halls of Munich. From Munich it's off to Bamberg for where we will spend 2 days exploring the breweries and sights of this historic town. We end this tour in Stuttgart where we will enjoy another festival, the Cannstatter Volksfest. This festival is quite a bit different than the Munich version of Oktoberfest in that it is more family oriented. But don't worry, there will be plenty of beer and schweinshauxe there.

Space for this trip is limited to twelve (12) people
