Every year, millions of travelers come together with millions of liters of the world’s finest beer in a Bavarian meadow to celebrate Oktoberfest. To help travelers enjoy this 205-year old tradition (Sept. 19 – Oct. 4), Viator, a TripAdvisor company and the leading resource for researching and booking tours and activities worldwide, has a selection of experiences that bring travelers to the heart of the festival, and Oktoberfest recommendations and information (including a fun infographic) to help plan an über good time. From a few hours to multi-day itineraries that include accommodations, travelers don’t have to navigate the Wiesn on their own.
Led by a local expert, the Small Group Munich City and Oktoberfest Tour including Reserved Oktoberfest Tent Table includes an orientation tour of the festival’s grounds at Theresienwiese as well as an overview of the region’s past and modern history and longstanding brewing traditions.
