Here’s a summary of the amazing places you’ll visit on the Beer or Bust and just a taster of the excitement…
The party starts in the beer tents of Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany where you’ll join over 6 million thirsty people from around the world. United by the love of liquid gold and Bavarian hospitality, we’ll all contribute to the 7 million liters of beer and half a million roast chickens that are consumed every year during this 2-week festival.
You’ll spend these three days in comfort just minutes from Oktoberfest and enjoy exclusive beer tent reservations. Oktoberfest is the biggest event in the world and will leave you simply amazed.
Next up is Regensburg, Germany – new to the Beer or Bust in 2023! Regensburg is an unforgettable UNESCO World Heritage city and home to hundreds of unique bars and pubs. You’ll enjoy three days of Regensburg’s rich nightlife and some of the best Bavarian food around.
The fairytale wonderland of Rothenburg ob der Tauber awaits you next. You’ll be transported back in time to drink local beers (and wines!) in cozy medieval taverns, tempt your taste buds from (a bit after) sunrise to sunset, and dine in a 1,000-year-old pub.
Finally, get ready for the Stuttgart Beer Festival—the world’s 2nd largest behind Oktoberfest. You’ll be hoisting steins in the beer tents at a party unrivaled anywhere else. Known locally as Cannstatter Volksfest, this festival attracts over 4 million visitors a year putting it almost on par with Oktoberfest in Munich.
And it’s an absolute hidden gem. It’s virtually tourist-free and few people outside of Germany have ever heard of it making it a truly unique experience.
