Oktoberfest Festival Tour

There’s nothing quite like the Oktoberfest! It’s the world’s largest beer and folk festival, and tales of rambunctious festivities in their trademark temporary beer halls are the stuff of legend. During your four-hour guided tour of the Oktoberfest grounds, you'll be amazed by the stories your tour guide will tell and the sheer size of the tents.

Your tour will take you right through the Oktoberfest with your professional tour guide explaining the history of the celebration and why it has become such a mecca for beer enthusiasts the world over. We'll visit tents from the major southern German brewers Augustiner, Löwenbräu, and Hofbräu, to name a few.

Your tour guide will make sure that you're set up to properly appreciate the “Wiesn,” as the Oktoberfest is known to the locals. You'll get insights on its history and culture, with fun anecdotes about the events, rides, and beer tents.

The best part of your tour: Reserved seating in one of the largest of the beer tents along with food, drink and entertainment provided. Bring your appetite since you'll be treated to two full steins (that's two liters!) of special Oktoberfest beer and an entire half chicken for lunch.

Your table server will take very good care of you as will your guide, so you’ll get the personalized attention you desire. Once our table reservation time is up (generally after a few hours), you can of course stay in the beer tent or explore the rest of the festival grounds on your own for as long as you would like.

Our English-speaking guides have been going to the Oktoberfest for years and know exactly how to make the most fun out of the event. They will give you all the background history and culture surrounding this world famous event and will ensure everyone has a fantastic time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Expand/Collapse What should I bring with me on the tour?

    Please wear comfortable shoes. It’s not fun when someone accidentally steps on your feet and you’re wearing flip-flops. Normally more than 50% of the guests in the beer tents at the Oktoberfest wear traditional Bavarian attire, so feel free to don authentic garb if you'd like! Your guide will certainly be wearing traditional attire.

    Small purses and bags with a volume of under 3 liters, or 20cm x 15cm x 10cm are permitted. Keys, small cameras, mobile phones, and a jacket are all okay.

    Cash in euros if you would like to purchase additional beer or food. Credit cards are not accepted!

     

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point for the tour?

    We meet for this tour at our shop in the courtyard of Karlsplatz 4.  Entering “Karlsplatz 4” into your phone’s map will take you directly to us.  Alternatively, directions to our shop are as follows: At the Karlsplatz / Stachus square, with your back to the old city gate, walk to your right along the boulevard with the tram tracks (so away from McDonald’s). After 50 meters along that road you will see our shop on the right-hand side in the courtyard of Karlsplatz 4. 

  • Expand/Collapse Do they accept credit cards at the tents for extra beers?

    Credit cards are not accepted, so please bring euros in cash for any extra purchases like additional beers or food. Tips for the wait staff ensure a speedy delivery of drinks and more attentive service.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I stay in the tent after our reservation has ended?

    Absolutely! Our table reservation time is generally within a few hours, and you are of course welcome to stay in the beer tent or explore the rest of the festival grounds on your own.

    Transportation back to your hotel or elsewhere up to you. If you aren't sure how to get back, your guide will be happy to give you directions.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    This tour is non-refundable once purchased.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    While children are allowed on the Oktoberfest grounds, and there are many fun rides for the entire family, we cannot recommend this tour for young children.

    Children are officially allowed to visit the beer tents until 6 pm each day, but there are big crowds and lots of beer is being consumed. It can get a bit hectic after a while for the younger ones not partaking in the revelry. Please use your own judgement.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Can you provide a more detailed breakdown of the tour?

    We’ll meet at our shop at Karlsplatz 4 and from there, we’ll take the metro (tickets included) to the festival grounds as a group. To enter the festival grounds we will have to go through security so please do not bring any large bags or prohibited objects with you.

    Once through Security your guide will take you on a tour of the Oktoberfest grounds, giving you details about the history as well as fun anecdotes about events, the rides, and the beer tents. 

    From there we will enter the beer tent where we have a reservation, for entry and for seating - no waiting in lines or trying to find a table! You will be given your vouchers for drinks and food in the value of two liters of beer and a half chicken. The vouchers though are yours to spend as you please.  

    At any time, and also once our table reservation time is up (generally after a few hours), you can of course stay in the beer tent or explore the rest of the festival grounds on your own.  Transportation back to your hotel or elsewhere is then up to you.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I bring my own food or drink in the tents?

    While a plastic water bottle is generally permitted, food and drinks must be purchased on the fair grounds or in the tents.  No glass bottles are permitted on the fair grounds.

  • Expand/Collapse What am I allowed to bring with me since bags are not permitted?

    Small purses and bags with a volume of under 3 liters, or 20cm x 15cm x 10cm is permitted.  That’s really not very big.  Keys, small cameras (mobile phones), and a jacket are all okay, but no glass bottles or anything at all suspicious.

  • Expand/Collapse What is the number to call if I am lost and trying to find the meeting point?

    If you are having difficulty finding the meeting location for your tour, please call us at+49 (0)89 23 88 87 98 and our staff will be happy to help you find your way.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I bring my bag/backpack?

    Small purses and bags with a volume of under 3 liters, or 20cm x 15cm x 10cm is permitted. Keys, small cameras, mobile phones, and a jacket are all okay, but no glass bottles, sharp objects, or anything else that may not make it through typical security checks.

    Please wear comfortable shoes. It’s not fun when someone accidentally steps on your feet and you’re wearing flip-flops.
