Munich Vacations: Beer Gardens & Culture
Munich is a city of beer gardens, Bavarian culture, and Oktoberfest. The two-week-long celebrations of Oktoberfest run from late September to the first weekend in October every year and draw crowds from around the world. Munich is home to several breweries and to the famous Augustiner-Keller beer garden. Get some bratwurst and beer for breakfast and make your way to the Old Picture Gallery for some time with the old masters. Whether you’re celebrating Oktoberfest or looking for art, soak in the city with a Liberty Travel Munich vacation package.
