Golf and Beer Culture Tour
If you love golf and really enjoy beer, this is the tour for you. This week we experience many facets of the beer culture in Bavaria – and play some great courses along the way. We visit the oldest brewery in the world and also a very young brewery making a name for itself with craft beers. The micro brewery wave has finally hit Germany! We’ll experience the best beer gardens in & around Munich and make a beer pilgrimage to Andechs. At the end of the week we take what is likely the most unique brewery tour in the world. We’ve chosen some fantastic and beautiful golf courses , some with tremendous views of the Alps, all of them fun for any skill level.
We fully support the German Brewers Codex, and all guests are expected to consume responsibly. One thing that you can depend upon on this tour – you leave the driving to us!

A relaxing start to the week. We stop by the BMW World for a quick visit on the way to Gut Häusern and our first round of golf. Gut Häusern hosts an event on the Ladies European Tour and is annually ranked one of the top five courses in Germany. After the round and some time on the great club terrace we head to one of Munich’s best kept secrets for a relaxing meal - a secluded villa beer garden.
Included: Transportation, Green Fees & Lodging
Today we make a beer pilgrimage to Andechs, the world-famous monastery brewery and beer garden. But of course, we get to play golf first. For this, we are going to Wörthsee, an immaculate and fair course which has hosted several professional tournaments. In the late afternoon we will head over to Andechs, where you will have plenty of time to visit the church, check out the views, and of course, enjoy dinner and the famous Andechs beer.

No golf today but we have FIVE highlights on tap. We start with a visit to the German Hops Museum. We then take a boat ride through the Danube Narrows, ending up at the second oldest brewery in the world for lunch. Then we tour the wonderful and quirky Kuchlbauer brewery, a temple for the art of brewing! We end the day with dinner at the world’s first oldest brewery – founded in 1040 – Weihenstephan, also home to the famous brewing school.
Included: Transportation, Entrance Fees & Lodging
A day after visiting the two oldest breweries in the world we visit one of the youngest. But, as usual, golf first. Today’s course is an award winning layout truly embedded in nature, G.C. Hohenpähl. Almost every hole is secluded, kind of its own private Idaho. In the afternoon we learn the art of brewing at very young craft brewery that set up shop in an old farmhouse. After the brewing course there will be beer tasting, dinner and a safe drive back home.
Included: Transportation, Brewing Course & Lodging
Today we head east to the beautiful Chiemgau region. G.C. Prien is a fun place to play and has some really spectacular panoramic views of the Alps. After the round we take a beautiful drive to one of the many breweries in the region for a tour and dinner. The Baumburger brewery is housed in a wonderfully restored ex monastery, and the castle brewery Steiner offer a tour of the castle built on a crag.

The last full day gives you time for discovering more of Munich beer gardens, shopping or relaxing. Or how about a day trip to Salzburg, Berchtesgaden or Rothenberg? We can arrange the day to your liking. Tonight we have the farewell dinner appropriately at a great Munich beer garden.
Included: Lodging & Farewell Dinner
Today we sadly say “auf Wiedersehen” and bring your group to the airport for the trip back home (or to your chosen departure point).
Included: Airport Transfer
|Please Note: Beer Culture Tour
|Because of golf before beer is better than golf after beer, on this tour we normally do the cultural activity in the afternoon after the round of golf.
|Because of tournament schedules and such not every course is guaranteed to be available for play on the particular day according to this itinerary. We have full flexibility, of course, to adapt and swap days when necessary.
|Day One starts with your arrival in Munich. If you are flying in straight from the Americas, you fly out on the previous day.
