Who’s ready for some Oktoberfest homes?
Dust off your lederhosen and steins, because it’s the most wunderbar time of the year!
If you can’t make it to Munich for Oktoberfest, you can still enjoy a good beer at one of the American events happening all throughout the country in September.
From Frankenmuth, Michigan, to Fredericksburg, Texas, you’re certain to find a spirited group of Germanophiles somewhere during the month celebrating all things Bavarian.
To get inspired for Oktoberfest, check out these nine Bavarian-style homes for sale right here in the U.S.
A taste of Germany on the central coast
For sale: $795,000
Nestled near the heart of downtown Solvang, California — a central coast town with Danish roots — this traditional Tudor gets you all the charm of a Bavarian home with all the modern American finishings you’re accustomed to, like an updated kitchen with granite countertops and hardwood floors. The home also features a bocce court, a large 3-car garage and an elevator from the garage to the second floor.

A colorful German-inspired home
