A Beer Pilgrimage Through Bavaria
4-Day Tour featuring Munich, Bamberg and the Bavarian Beer Trails
Bavaria is the real king of beers. There are over 630 breweries in Bavaria, which is almost half the number in the entire country of Germany. Consider that Bavaria is about the same size as Ireland, which only has about 60 breweries! This tour focuses on the important aspects of beer in Bavaria: 1.) Munich, the Bavarian capital synonymous with beer; 2.) Bamberg, the “True Capital of Beer” which has the highest density of breweries in the world; and 3.) the Bavarian Abbey Beer Trail, which boasts the oldest breweries in the world.
We start in Munich with its tremendous breweries and famous beer gardens, move through the world’s most renowned hops growing region, spend a good day-and-a-half in Bamberg, then make our way back to Munich via quaint towns and breweries, including our final stop at another Abbey Beer Trail brewery. We will see traditional Gasthäuser, famous Bavarian beer gardens, and craft breweries alike. If you love all things beer, this is the tour for you!
