Visiting the Miraphone factory is a wonderful experience... and what is completely amazing about the place is that it is employee-owned and all the materials come from Germany and the horns are handmade by artisans right there on site. It's a fascinating process to see.

As mentioned before the train to Waldkraiburg is about 1.5 hours (or less) from Munich. I believe it's an easy direct train from the Munich Hauptbahnhof (Munich Central Station), and Munich itself is very easy to navigate via train.

Have fun!

The folks at Miraphone are great. And you can certainly ride the train from Munich to Waldkraiburg. I think you have to go beyond it and then come back though (or get off in Ampfing and get a ride). Safe travels!

The German company that I used to deal with had basically a skeleton staff in August. I think that is a common practice - many employees take most of the month off. You might factor that into your manufacturer visits fwiw.

re: "near Munich"
re: "possible skeleton staff"

Oktoberfest is actually in SEPTEMBER, and ONLY on weekends...so (though huge) that likely has no effect on weekday visits to businesses in or near Munich.
