About this trip

BayernTrips is partnering with Cedar Springs Brewing Company in Michigan, to explore the roots of their Bavarian and Bohemian brewing and dining traditions. The trip is anchored by a traditional May Pole Festival  and Munich's Frühlingfest, & you'll enjoy an insider's view of the alpine  regions of southern Bavaria and Austria. We first enjoy Salzburg and nearby Berchtesgaden before heading in to the Czech Republic to the UNESCO World Heritage city of  Český Krumlov, followed by a visit to the original Budweis. Back in Munich, we have two evenings at the  Münchner Frühlingsfest, Oktoberfest's little sister. In addition to amazing beer and food, there is lots of history, scenery and great times!


There is also an optional "add on" trip to the Rheinland to sample the classic ales of Köln, with their Kölsch Biers and the spectacular Dom Cathedral, and Dusseldorf, home of Altbier.

I am from the USA and studied the German Language and European History at Northern Michigan University. After college I spent several years in the hospitality industry on Mackinac Island, Michigan and was later Co-President of a successful plastic injection molding company. I'm also part-owner of a microbrewery in Michigan and am a certified Diplom BierSommelier. With my many Bavarian friends and contacts, I'll unlock the Bavarian culture for you during during one of my unforgettable tours!

Reviews

This was an amazing trip. It far exceeded all my expectations. When you travel with Scott and Vonia, you have experiences that go way beyond what the average tourist experiences. There are so many special moments that will stay with me forever. On May Day we went to the small town of Boebing to watch them erect their May Pole. We were the only non-residents there and it was a glorious day. I am a former History teacher and still spend most of my free time studying the subject. Scott knows his history and, although I've spent a great deal of time studying German history, I've learned from him. He knows his history as well as he knows his beer. This was my second tour with Scott and Vonia and I can't wait to go on the next one. They are so much more than tour guides. They are so personable and fun to travel with. And they attract interesting people. On the last trip I went solo, but I felt like I was traveling with a group of friends. That's the kind of atmosphere Scott and Vonia create. Travel with them. You will have one of the best times of your life. I know I have!
As always Scott and Vonia did a great job. Their thoughtfulness in setting up this event so we could spend some time with our friends, Oliver and Simone, from Munich was really a nice thing to do. It was nice to see some old friends, some of which I had not seen in many years, and to meet some new ones. The venue, beer and food were great and everyone had a good time.
Scott and Vonia are excellent hosts. Great beer, great food and great people to meet. Prost!
