Beer Safari in Germany - MTS/IH/16
Let’s take you to a wonderful journey of Beer Safari & Spa with our 9 nights/10 days special Germany tour package including airport transfers, complete guided tour, sight-seeing,
Beer has a history closely intertwined with the history of humanity itself. Brewing tradition of Beer began some 6000 years ago. Some of the earliest concepts of brewing were discovered during this era. Sumerians, the oldest known civilization on earth, began "brewing" and in the process they had discovered a true drink of the gods.
Beer is a major part of German culture even though the domestic consumption patterns have been fluctuating for some years. However, the brew has risen to such heights in international popularity that in addition to the Germans there are people from all parts of the world travelling through Germany and especially during the Oktoberfest to have a taste of this wonderful drink. This popularity is partly because of the culinary & cultural importance and in part also because of the strict state control regulating the production of beer. There actually is a German Beer Law which allows only a certain range of ingredients and additives for the brewing process.
To get a real taste of Germany, one needs to skip the ubiquitous brands for a more adventurous brew and savour a local beer. There is a whole range of beers to taste from, be it the smoked brews in Bavaria or woodruff-laced wheat beer in Berlin and one can’t have enough of the 100s of flavours across German Beer region.
The original "Oktoberfest" took place in Munich, on October 18, 1810: during the commemoration ceremony of the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig (later King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen (namesake of the Theresienwiese festival grounds). Since its beginnings, the Oktoberfest has only been cancelled 24 times due to pressing reasons like war, disease, and other emergencies. In present times, It is one of the most famous events in Germany and the world's largest fair, with some six million people attending every year and is an important part of Bavarian culture. Octoberfest is also celebrated in many other cities and parts of the world.
Alongside the variety of Beer offered there is a culinary spread to interest all kinds of palates. There is a spread to pick from which includes but is not limited to traditional hearty fare such as Hendl (chicken), Schweinsbraten (roast pork), Haxn (knuckle of pork), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick), Würstl (sausages) along with Brezn (Pretzel), Knödeln (potato or bread dumplings) etc.. Then there are variations of the spit-roasted duck or goose. Roasted meats, especially pork and potato dumplings, are served up with the traditional red cabbage and apple dish (Blaukohl). Kaasspotzn (cheese noodles), Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes), Sauerkraut or Rotkraut (red cabbage) along with such Bavarian delicacies as Obatzda (a fatty, spiced cheese-butter concoction) and Weisswurst (a white sausage) add to the fare.
Smaller appetites are satisfied by dishes made of potato and/or potato soup, and even vegetarians don't go hungry, there are massive warm, soft pretzels, cheese plates with bread, or one of the many meatless dishes served up in each of the tents. To top it all there is something to satisfy every sweet tooth.
Favourite of all, the mere mention of a Beer bath makes a few eyes roll. Add to this beer-based body scrub and massage and one already starts feeling bodily in heaven. And it is not sheer hype, The hops in the beer detoxify the body and if clubbed with body scrub, intensify its power. The aroma of the beer and hops, works as aromatherapy as well. So, the process works from the outside in and from the inside out also.
