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.

A special bus and lift then take you up to the Kehlsteinhaus at an altitude of 1,834m, where you will be rewarded with spectacular views.Our guide will give a comprehensive summary of the historical events and answer any questions. Afterwards, we will have a short stop in the town of Berchtesgaden.The return journey via the German alpine road shows you the impressive valleys of Bavaria.In the event of bad weather conditions (snow, ice, fog) which make a trip up to the Kehlsteinhaus impossible, we offer the visit of the Berchtesgaden salt mines as an alternative.


Join me at my home in Oberaudorf for a Bavarian family-style dinner and learn how to make Schnitzel, potato salad ‘Boarisch’ style & schmarn! I put the Schnitzel hammer LITERALLY into your hands and share with you my grandmother’s recipes straight from the farmstead!Sip some of our favorite Bavarian beers during the cooking course and enjoy a local schnapps to top off the meal. You join me each step of the way. We pick you up from the train station in Oberaudorf and then it’s straight into my kitchen with all the fixin’s and most importantly the schnitzel hammer!After cooking and enjoying our meal together, we say Servus and get you back to the station in time for your train, but not before you get your own Adventure Bavaria recipes to take back with you so you can make Schnitzel at home for all your family and friends.
