ABOUT our OKTOBERFEST TOURs
The Oktoberfest versions of our historical tours are our most popular departure dates, as they feature an afternoon of merrymaking at the world’s premier beer festival. Although lederhosen are not required, they are highly recommended.
The famous Munich Oktoberfest was born in 1810 to celebrate the wedding of Crown Prince (later King) Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese. The event's local name,Â Wiesn, derives fromÂ "Theresienwiese",Â "Theresa's meadow", the fields in front of the city gates where the first celebration was held.
