Everyone has heard of the famous German Christmas Markets. Our classic tour visits the most traditional Bavarian Christmas markets. Sip hot wine with the locals and enjoy learning about German Christmas customs!  Ours is a small, personalized tour, and participation is limited to less  than 20 people.   By design, our tour covers less geography so you  don't spend all of your time in a bus. We take care of all the details and explain all the secrets of the culture, the history and the  tradition. If you believe there is more to travel than just sight-seeing, our trip is for you.

Led by a local

Enjoy the convenience of having a local unveil the history and unlock the culture and its traditions.  With our expertise, you will see more in less time and experience the beauty of the Bavarian Culture, stress-free.

Physical Requirements

Europe is not always for someone with disabilities and we encourage you to asses you abilities frankly. With our tour, there is a fair amount of walking. Many of our hotels are located in the "old town" which makes getting in with a bus challenging. We often need to load and unload the bus further away and walk to our hotel, with our things up to 1/4 mile. Some of our hotels also do not have an elevator and most interesting parts of any of our destinations are located in pedestrian only areas, usually paved with cobble stones. As a guideline we recommend you be able to sustain a pace of 3 mph for up to 20 minutes. 

Food and Drink

Many of our group meals have a pre-planed menu and we offer the very best in common German cuisine. We can accommodate many dietary restrictions including common ones like Vegetarian and various allergies. However, we asked that you inform us up front. And, I am afraid that the traditional restaurants we commonly use will not have Vegan selections. 


This being Germany, alcohol is abundant and many of your fellow travelers will be enjoying beer and wine during the meals. In the markets, the alcohol drinks are a beloved part of the the Christmas Market experience.

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!

I retracted my last review from the cancelled Starkbierfest from March. Scott and Vonia refunded a lot of our trip, as much as they could and we appreciate their honesty and integrity. We’ve been seeing our 2018 pics from Octoberfest and can’t wait to go again. I hope that we can go again with Bayern Trips In the future as we fell in love with the people and beer of Germany. Scott and Vonia have been doing these trips around Bavaria for many years and if u go on a trip with them, you’re guaranteed to have a great time! Prost! ??

Sadly, the US Travel restrictions occurred virtually simultaneously with the planned start of our trip and 16 of the 17 participants decided not to fly to Munich. As the magnitude of the situation became clear, more and more of our partners (hotel, festivals, restaurants, and even Deutsche Bahn) changed their policies on making refunds. While we still haven't been credited a large amount of these payments, we have extended a 90% refund or credit towards next year's trip. I am sorry that it has taken so long and hope you understand that the unprecedented nature of this pandemic had everyone in the tourism business desperately scrambling.

We were very disappointed - President Trump made an announcement on travel ban on March 11, 2020, due to COVID19-We were scheduled to leave on March 12, 2020-Since there would possibly be no flights back to Pittsburgh from Germany-And we would have been quarantined for two weeks after entering the states- Therefore we needed to cancel our flight and tour We are also very disappointed that we have not received a refund for the tour. We cannot rate this tour since it never took place Frank, Roslyn, Scott Oberlitner
Your family has traveled with Vonia and me several times and we are thrilled that you are now re-booked for Starkbierfest 2021! Sorry it took so long to get things figured out!

Scott organises PHENOMENAL tours of Bavaria. His tours are NOT the standard motorcoach tours; they are FAR superior! Point to point within the various cities, is by foot, unless the distance ins too great, in which case it is by public transport, or very occasionally by taxi. From city to city travel is normally by rail. The elimination of a coach, reduces costs, keeps the travel groups at a more manageable size and allows guests to enjoy quality travel time. Smaller group numbers also allows Scott to give more of his attention to each traveller. All restaurants visited, offer a unique blend of fantastic cuisine and a smattering of local history. For example, one was originally a 16C monastery, and of course no visit to Munich is complete without a visit to the famous Hofbräuhaus. There is never any such thing as dead time- Scott delivers accurate history lectures on each region and city, before, during and after departure to each new destination. I have travelled with BayernTrips extensively and have NEVER encountered another traveller who was dissatisfied. I cannot recommend BayernTrips enough! As I write this review, I am already planning my next vacation with BayernTrips.

Scott was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide who gave us a great overview of each city with a walking tour. Scott struck a great balance between narrated tours/activities and time on our own to explore. Both Scott and Vonia provided great recommendations for food and specific market purchases. The hotels were very conveniently and centrally located in each city which facilitated sight seeing. We had an amazing time. Thanks for a well organized tour!
Great trip all around -- Scott's knowledge of local culture and history really shines. My fourth trip with them and every time I've seen and learned new things and places. More like traveling with friends than a tour group.
