Learn Oktoberfest secrets on virtual guided tours (only in German)

Virtual live tour of the Oktoberfest with Andre Listing

Even if the Oktoberfest can't take place in 2021, there's something we can do about the longing for the Oktoberfest. Eight top-class Wiesn insiders talk from the inside. You can be part of it: Book a virtual tour with expert Wiesn guides and guests such as the Wiesn boss himself, Wiesn innkeepers and fairground legends. The tour (in German) starts on September 16 with Aufbau boss and event manager Andre Listing: "Aufbaut is!"

How do the online tours of the Wiesn work and who is on them?

At the beginning of each tour, which takes place via Zoom Meeting, the guest guides Grit Ranft and Birgit Stempfle, who are experts on the Oktoberfest, provide a glimpse behind the scenes of the world's largest folk festival. A very special guest is then connected live to the respective topic, talks about himself and his job - and answers questions. What's it all about? Of course, it's about the construction and planning of the Oktoberfest, the carnies and the Oktoberfest innkeepers, the music of the Oktoberfest bands and the traditional costume parade.

Who is involved? Wiesn boss Clemens Baumgärtner is an expert, the innkeepers Peter Inselkammer and Christian Schottenhamel answer questions, the junior boss of the Ferris wheel Sebastian Willenborg, Manfred "Schichtl" Schauer and other guests.
