Oktoberfest 2010 Dates & Tours

Munich Comments Off

It’s just about that time again: when Germans and tourists alike don Lederhosen and Dirndls and flock to the Wies’n for Oktoberfest! (or, as many foreigners misspell it, Octoberfest). Here’s a snap with a pocket camera: low light and background blur give a very interesting effect on these two friends of mine!

Oktoberfest 2010 Dates: September 18th until October 4th. Better hurry up and book your plane tickets for Munich…

Here are Guided Munich’s top recommendations of what to do while you’re in Bavaria! Well, that’s besides trying our Munich Photo Tour, hehe.

Top Ten Things To Do in Munich (in no particular order)

  • Visit the Wies’n – the official Oktoberfest grounds!
  • Climb up Zugspitze if you’re in tip-top shape, or ride the gondola to get there
  • Visit the Austrian Alps on a day trip
  • Check out crazy King Ludwig’s unfinished Neuschwanstein Castle (upon which Disney’s Magic Kingdom castle is based!)
  • Drive (and then ferry) to crazy King Ludwig’s other unfinished castle, Herrenchiemsee on Lake Chiemsee
  • Go to the Deutsches Museum, a massive Science Museum in downtown Munich
  • Visit the BMW Museum and check out the entire history of this iconic car brand
  • Relax in the Englischer Garten in the north half of Munich, and have a beer at the Seehaus or Chinese Tower Biergartens
  • For an insider Biergarten tip, try Hirschau just north of the Mittlerer Ring – tough to reach, but great jazz music weekend afternoons!
  • Climb one of Munich’s many towers for a great view – the Olympiaturm offers panoramas of BMW, parks, and a distant downtown view

If you’re interested in photography, do give our guided tour of Munich a try – photo lessons and the best vantage points, all in one afternoon. There’s a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, or your money back.

Now, here’s something to whet your appetite – roast half chicken, or Halbes Hendl:

And a final taste of Oktoberfest – the Steckerlfish. Yep, it’s charcoal-roasted fish on a big stick. Mmm.

Hope to see you here at Oktoberfest in 2010!
