Behind-the-Scenes Brewery and Beer Tour in Munich

Behind-the-scenes brewery and beer tour in Munich

This Munich brewery and beer tour begins at the Bahnhofplatz in front of the Karstadt München Bahnhofplatz, across from the main railway station. After boarding a motor coach, travel to several famous city breweries for behind-the-scenes tours. Spaten, Franziskaner and Löwenbräu are all visited during your trip.
Munich has a rich heritage as the city of beer, breweries, beer gardens and beer festivals — like the famed Oktoberfest. The art of brewing is a centuries-old tradition here. Listen as experienced master brewers offer fascinating information about the brewing process, which abides by the Reinheitsgebot, sometimes called the ‘German Beer Purity Law.’
Take a guided tour of each brewery to see their malting towers, brewhouses, fermenting tanks, beer cellars and wells. Then, enjoy a beer tasting with a fresh Bavarian pretzel — a fitting end to an entertaining and educational tour.

The tour took a short trip around Munich city center while the guide told about the origins of the beer culture and octoberfest in Munich and Bavaria. After that we were led on an extensive tour through the Spaten brewery followed by a beer tasting session in the tower of the brewery the highest lookout point in Munich open to public. The tour was very informative and enjoyable, and recommendable to all who like history and beer.

We had a very knowledgeable tour guide. Also all you can drink for 45 minutes before the tour starts. Doesn't get any better.

My wife and I were somewhat apprehensive about taking a beer-related group bus tour in Munich. We were worried that it may be a little too "touristy" and that we would not get anything out of it. We only took the tour because of a dead spot in our schedule and it had good reviews on Viator. It turned out to be one of our best experiences in Munich. To our surprise, the overwhelming majority of the participants were German so the bus ride alone was an immersion into German culture. The guide on the bus tour was very knowledgeable of Munich and the history of beer.

Once we arrived at Paulaner brewery, we immediately started with beer and pretzels. For the first 45 minutes at the brewery, the whole group just drank beer and socialized. When it was time for the tour to start, the German group left roughly 10 minutes ahead of the English speaking group. This was great because I am sure that neither group wanted to sit through hearing the same presentation twice. The English speaking group was small (just 6 of us) and we were able to ask a lot of questions about the brewery and get a personal experience with our guide.

At the end of the tour the bus loaded up with a happier and more talkative group than it started what it started with. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history of beer in Munich.
