This suggested Oktoberfest extension is just one way to experience Germany on your own customized Ker & Downey journey. Our designers are at their best when crafting a journey unique to you; so contact us to start planning and read on to see one example of what’s possible on a handcrafted trip.


Begin your Oktoberfest celebrations by getting to know the city of Munich. Your grand accommodations at Bayerischer Hof represent the epitome of world-class luxury. Additionally, they offer the perfect base from which to explore the city’s elegant and historic city center by foot. Weather permitting, enjoy lunch at the Chinese Tower beer garden and dinner at Spaten. Indeed, this is a favorite spot among locals for its traditional brews and food.



Get in the spirit of Oktoberfest by participating in the festive costume parade (Trachtenumzug) through Munich. You will have the opportunity to enjoy it from your own private location with snacks and drinks. The highlight of the week is walking through the bustling Oktoberfest tent (Wies’n). Celebrate into the wee hours of the night at the exclusive Schützen Festzelt, whose VIP-filled tables are almost as difficult to secure as getting a box at the Super Bowl.



When not partaking in the festivities, take off for explorations through Munich and the Bavarian countryside. Try your hand at driving a sports car on the no-limit German motorway. Enjoy an exclusive private tour of the St. Emmeram Castle of the Princely Family of Thurn & Taxis. Tour a BMW production plant. And get lost in the narrow alleyways of Regensburg Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will also have the chance to visit the extensive Rococo interiors of Amalieburg and the sprawling gardens of Nymphenburg Palace and its famous porcelain manufactory, usually closed to the public.
