Upper Bavaria

Putting up the Maypole

Putting up the Maypole

Tour suggestion

One of the oldest traditions still maintained in Upper Bavaria is the setting up of the traditional maypole along with music and dancing.
Maypoles are set up every year on May 1. Each year, a different village sets up the maypole. During the last couple weeks of April, the tree is planed smooth, painted blue and white and then decorated. Of course, the tree is guarded day and night —because if it is stolen, the ransom to get it back would mean sacrificing more beer and food than anyone wants to.

April 29: Arrival

April 30: Munich attractions

View the attractions of the city centre, and then continue on from Königsplatz to the Olympic Park and through the trendy Schwabing district. Enjoy lunch at a typical Bavarian brew pub, and afterwards, visit Nymphenburg palace: The summer residence of the Bavarian ruling family of Wittelsbach. This baroque-style edifice that is still basically decorated as it originally was in the 17th/18th centuries. As you continue on the trail of the Wittelsbach family, you will stop at the Residenz, the main palace until 1918 and one of the most beautiful palaces in Europe. Dinner and overnight stay in Munich / Upper Bavaria.

May 1: Participate in a village maypole festival

In the morning, you will travel to a village in Upper Bavaria where the maypole will be set up, either by hand or using a tractor. At lunchtime, hang out at a typical folks festival with beer tables, typical German food — and, of course, most of the locals will be wearing traditional Bavarian clothing. You can relax at the festival for the whole day. In the evening, we’ll go to a traditional Bavarian brew pub to finish off the day over a full beer stein. Overnight stay in Munich / Upper Bavaria.
