The week beginning the 12th of June must surely be one of the best weeks in the year for fathers with National Beer Day (15th) and Father’s Day (18th) taking place in the same week, making the perfect excuse for a pint and a bit of indulgence.
With most fathers enjoying a good walk and a thirst quenching ale, why not combine the best of both worldsand take some special time out with your dad by booking a Ramblers Walking Holidays Bavarian Beer Garden Holiday this Father’s Day.
Enjoying the pick of Bavaria's wonderful mountain scenery, beautiful tranquil lakes and fairytale castles, this week long holiday from original walking experts, Ramblers Walking Holidays (01707 331 133, www.ramblersholidays.co.uk) combines the choice of moderate or more challenging walking trails with well-deserved stops in idyllically tucked away traditional beer gardens.
With walking highlights including the lakes and waterfalls near Murnau and Bad Bayersoien, high mountain views from above Garmisch and Hörnle mountain and King Ludwig II’s elaborate palaces of Linderhof and Neuschwanstein Castle – the inspiration of Disneyland’s castle, the holiday’s beer drinking watering holes are equally enchanting. Ranging from the lakeside “Fischerhäusl” on the shores of the Bayersoier Lake and Uffing’s“Alpenblick” beer garden - the essence of what a rural beer garden should be, to the Ettal monastery which has been serving beer brewed by monks for over 400 years, there are plenty of opportunities to ‘prost’ the day’s activities with a well-deserved beer,or two,in a glorious setting.
