Prost! Munich is the beer capital of the world. Home of the beer-halls, beer-gardens, beer-cellars and the legendary Oktoberfest.

Discover how beer is brewed and the fascinating story of German brewing. For as long as there have been Germans, there has been beer.

The world has looked to Germany to set the standards of what a cool drink of great beer should be. And Germany looks to Munich. We'll show you why.
For a walking tour with a difference, head north of Berlin for a tour into the past at Sachenhausen, one of the main concentration camps in Nazi Germany. While you walk, you'll learn the story of the camp, providing an essential background to Germany's past and present. This is one tour you'll remember vividly for years to come.
While the Nazis were hosting the 1936 Olympic games, slave laborers were being forced to build a huge new concentration camp just north of Berlin, intended to hold political 'enemies' of the Nazi regime political, racial and 'asocial'. Of the 200,000 people interned, over 50,000 lost their lives before the camp was liberated by the Soviets in 1945.
The camp was then used by the Soviets until 1950 to detain former Nazis, German soldiers and political opponents of the communists. Many thousands more died from malnutrition and disease.
The key to this walking tour is the informative and illuminating narrative provided by your expert tour guide. During your 3-hour visit to the camp you'll learn important background history of the site as you walk through the Appellplatz parade ground, the Jewish Barrack, punishment cells, execution grounds and crematorium, Station Z, the Pathology Laboratory and camp hospital.
This tour was researched by historian Gabriel Fawcett, who is publishing an important witness account of the camp. All tour guides have their own special insights into the history of Sachsenhausen, and are experienced in unraveling the complex history of the Third Reich and the Holocaust.
