If so, then it may be easier to take advantage of our top stag packages; we’ve got plenty to choose from, including the likes of our Munich Differentiated Package, where you and the rest of the guys will get to enjoy an exhilarating flying fox experience, discover some of the best bars in the city with an unbelievable bar crawl and a visit to a top gentlemen’s club – we’ll also throw in return transfers and 2 nights’ accommodation.

Munich stag do guide


Munich is one of the best stag weekend cities Europe has to offer. Why? Well, if one of the liveliest city centres of a weekend and some serious beerhall action doesn't take your fancy - not to mention that Munich is considered to be the spiritual home of beer, then frankly, we give up.

Much of the nightlife is centred upon the old beerhalls that make Germany famous, but there's also the area known to locals as 'the banana' due to its shape, which is equally brilliant for after-dark fun. This 'banana' area stretches from Maximiliansplatz via Stachus to Sonnenstrasse and is perfect for lighting the stag party tinderbox.

Great if you are looking for

  • Some culture with a good measure of traditional German hosptiality
  • Beer halls with tankards of the golden drink of the gods
  • Brewery tours, steak and stripper meals, bar crawls and go-karting

Getting around

Other than your own two feet, getting around in Munich is best and most inexpensively done by hopping on the suburban trains (S-Bahn), underground trains (U-Bahn) or streetcars (Tram). They all share one ticketing system called the MVV and you can even get group tickets if you all plan to stay together. The stations for each type of travel are marked with either a “U” or a white “S” - head to Munich MVV for route maps, pricing information and timetables.

Note that the U-Bahn doesn’t run between 1am and 4am on Fridays, or 2am and 4am on Saturdays. There is the odd night-tram though - look out for those with an N before the route number.

Munich’s extensive tram network is good for sightseeing, though slow as they stop a lot more than the trains. If you’re in a hurry to get from A to B, a taxi is another good option, especially at night. They can be expensive, but you won’t have any trouble finding one, with 2.5 taxis for every 1,000 inhabitants in Munich. The basic fare is about €3.30 with additional €1.70/km for up to 5 km. Extra charges are made if you make the taxi driver wait with luggage though, so make your lives easier and just book airport transfers with us!

Tips and ideas

Some of our most-requested stag do activities in Munich include Bayern Munich Stadium Tours, Bubble Football, Beer Bikes and Bavarian Feasts - all the B’s! If you’re stuck for things to do in Munich we’re here to take all the hard work out of keeping everyone entertained. And we’ll also be pleased to organise convenient door-to-door transfers for any of your activities that require them.

Marienplatz, in the heart of the city, is the launch pad for much of the sightseeing in Munich, and is used by locals as well as visitors as a popular meeting point. The square is also home to the biggest Christmas market in the city, if you’re planning a winter stag in Munich and want some souvenirs - or some warming glühwein. From Marienplatz it’s easy to get to the famous Frauenkirche Cathedral, the Karlstor preserved city gate, or the huge Viktualienmarkt with its excellent beer garden, that is ideal for midday snacks or a few drinks on a sunny afternoon.

Also perfect for a lazy few hours with some good beer is the huge English Garden, one of the largest public parks in the world. You’ll find several beer gardens and kiosks here, as well as a number of architectural attention-grabbers like the Chinese Tower and a Japanese teahouse. Wander down to the southern end of the Eisbach, a short manmade river, and you can also watch daring surfers in action. A great place to spend an afternoon with a footie or a frisbee.

The Olympic Park, in the Oberwiesenfeld neighbourhood, was built for the 1972 Summer Olympics. The structures here are still regularly used for events and it’s a pretty impressive site to walk around. Nearby, you’ve got the BMW Museum, where guided tours and exhibitions trace the heritage, and the models, of one of Germany’s greatest car brands. A pretty cool destination for petrol heads.

Lastly, we can’t forget the incredible Oktoberfest. For those who don’t know, it’s the biggest and best celebration of beer (pretty much) in the world, attracting millions of thirsty punters every year. Huge tents are erected and beer gardens created so that approximately 7.5 million litres of beer can be consumed during the festival. Be aware though that flight prices and hotel prices can go up during the 16 days the festival runs (but trust us, it’s so, so worth it.) Our Oktoberfest Stag Do Packages are the ideal introduction to this massive party, which is on many bucket lists for good reason.

Nightlife

Munich may not be quite as hedonistic as Berlin, and it’s a bit more expensive, but you are pretty much guaranteed a top night out here, especially if you read our stag do guide to Munich nightlife before heading out!

Some of the best neighbourhoods for going out in Munich include Gärtnerplatz and Glockenbach, both of which are lined with trendy bars and pubs that attract a young, fashionable crowd. It’s a similar story in Schwabing, a big student area where the drinks are cheap and the ambience is buzzing.

There are something like 250 pubs, beer halls and bars around Altstadt (Old Town), along with cool restaurants and clubs, so you won’t go wrong there. The legendary Hofbrauhaus is unmissable, a huge communal drinking space at the heart of Bavarian tavern heritage. Regulars have their own tables set aside, even their own tankards kept in a special safe! Grab a few seats, take in a music show, and enjoy the completely unique atmosphere in one of Germany’s oldest and most beloved beer halls.  

The Feierbanane, or Party Banana, is a mile-long stretch of bars, clubs and restaurants along the Sonnenstraße in the shape of a, what else, banana. Here there are dozens of lively bars and clubs all wrestling for the attention of crowds of partygoers, making it difficult not to have a good time.

Unsure of how to start your evening? Why don't you and the rest of the guys begin by indulging in one of our popular Munich Bar Crawls, and discovering some of the best pubs and bars that the city has to offer for a taste of the Bavarian lifestyle. It's also worthwhile taking advantage of our excellent Nightclub entry package, where we'll send you off to one of Munich's top clubbing hotspots where you can finish the evening in style.

 Another little tip we have for you is a visit to the Labor Bar on Sonnenstraße 5. It’s a little place so it’s easy to miss, but if you manage to find it there’s a laboratory of booze waiting for you. The bartenders are all in lab coats and shots are dispensed in test tubes (injected via a large syringe). On Thursdays they also have a beer pong tournament.

We’d also recommend checking out the Heubodenbar, and Ned Kelly’s, which are two of the best sports bars in Munich. Reliable favourites if your team is in action in the Premier League or Champions League during the weekend.

FAQ

Is Munich good for a stag do?

Munich is a fantastic city for a Germany stag do. A little less wild than Berlin, a little more expensive, but with heaps of brilliant stag activities and a superb nightlife scene along the famous ‘party banana’. And of course, Munich is home to Oktoberfest, one of the most epic stag do experiences out there.

What to do on a stag do in Munich

Mornings in Munich are for classic stag activities like Bubble Football, tours of Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena stadium, or Paintballing. In the afternoon we recommend taking it easy in one of the city’s many superb beer gardens such as those found in the massive English Garden. And in the evenings there’s no better way to get yourselves into the mood, and to rub shoulders with the locals, than in a huge beer hall like the famous Hofbrauhaus which dates back to the 16th century!
