When on a family holiday to Munich, it’s important to find an activity that everyone can enjoy; that’s why Culture Trip has put together this guide of incredible tours and experiences that will thrill everyone from teenagers to grandparents.

Munich may be famous for its Oktoberfest celebrations, but if you’re travelling with kids or family members there’s lots of incredible experiences outside of the beer tents. From marvelling at fairytale-style castles just outside the city, exploring the best of the sights by Segway or learning how to make classic Bavarian cuisine in an idyllic farmhouse, these are the most exciting activities that all ages can enjoy on your family holiday to Munich.
