Tour 2 Dachau Concentration Camp with Starkbierfest in Munich

Starkbierfest…
…has developed a reputation as the city’s secret low-key beer festival.
What exactly is Starkbier? Literally translated starkbier means strong beer. Most people assume that this means it has a higher alcohol content. But it actually refers to a higher concentration of dissolved solids (think starch, proteins, sugars, etc.). In other words: starkbier = more filling, more caloric and in the end more potent.
What’s its origin? The most commonly told story of starkbier is a simple tale of hungry monks. Forced to fast during Lent, monks began to brew starkbier as a loophole-y way to get their fill of calories. So starkbier became recognized as liquid food.
Beyond that, Starkbier has a higher alcohol content (ranging from 7.5-9%). In terms of flavor, it’s malty and surprisingly smooth.
Where to go to celebrate? Other than the wellknown Oktoberfest, Starkbierfest isn’t held in a single location but is scattered around the city with special events being hosted by different breweries.

Dachau concentration camp
Dachau was the first of the Nazi concentration camps opened in 1933, intended to hold political prisoners. It served as a prototype and model for other concentration camps that followed during WWII. After its opening by Heinrich Himmler, its purpose was enlarged to include forced labor, and eventually, the imprisonment of Jews, German and Austrian criminals, and eventually foreign nationals from countries that Germany occupied or invaded.
Prisoners lived in constant fear of brutal treatment and terror detention including standing cells, floggings, the so-called tree or pole hanging, and standing at attention for extremely long periods. There were 32,000 documented deaths at the camp, and thousands that are undocumented.
The camp was liberated by U.S. forces on 29 April 1945.
Approximately 10,000 of the 30,000 prisoners were sick at the time of liberation.
In the postwar years the Dachau facility served to hold SS soldiers awaiting trial. After 1948, it held ethnic Germans who had been expelled from eastern Europe and were awaiting resettlement, and also was used for a time as a United States military base during the occupation. It was finally closed in 1960. There are several religious memorials within the Memorial Site, which is open to the public.
While in Dachau, you may also want to visit Dachau Palace, St. Jakob Parish Church, Old Town, Painting Gallery, Dachau Museum and Castle Garden.

Tour 3 Dachau Concentration Camp with Oktoberfest in Munich

The Oktoberfest began as a celebration of the marriage between Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxon on October 12th, 1810 and is today one of the largest festivals in the world. Locally, it is often called “the Wiesn”, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds, Theresa’s meadows.
Each year between 6 and 7 million people visit Oktoberfest with its over 800 market stalls filled with food, games, souvenirs and the large beer tents. They consume 7 million litres of beer at Oktoberfest every year. Bands dressed in traditional Bavarian costumes will entertain you in the beer tents. Be sure to try one of the 550,000 roasted chickens that are eaten during the event.
