Beer and Oktoberfest Museum - In Brief:
So before you visit Oktoberfest or one of Munich's wonderful beer gardens, how about educating yourself a little bit about Germany’s favorite drink?
The Beer and Oktoberfest Museum in Munich’s Old Town tells you all about Germany’s rich beer culture and the history of Munich’s Oktoberfest.
Beer and Oktoberfest Museum - What to Expect:
The Beer and Oktoberfest Museums is housed in Munich’s oldest residential home from the 14th century, and you can still see some of the original wood beams and restored murals from the building’s façade.
The exhibition takes you on a journey through the history of beer around the world – from the beer brewing pharaohs in Egypt, and the purity laws of the Bavarian monks, to Munich’s six state-of-the-art breweries. The upper floor of the museum is dedicated to the history of Oktoberfest, from its beginning as a wedding celebration for King Ludwig I in 1810, to the world’s largest beer festival.
