Discover the Bavarian capital's history from the late medieval period to its infamous political past, on this Munich walking tour. You'll explore important locations around the diverse city.
Munich Walking Tour
The guide will meet you at 10:15 am at Munich Central Station to start the tour. From here you'll go to notable points of interests around Munich, and discover the secrets surrounding the German Empire, the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich.
The tour around Germany's third largest city will include a step into the past, admiring the famous Rathaus-Glockenspiel in Marienplatz in the heart of Munich. It chimes 2-3 times a day while reenacting stories from the 16th century. We'll get a taste for Bavarian traditions by stopping at the long-standing Munich market, Viktualienmarkt, dating back to 1807 when it was moved after becoming too big for the central Marienplatz.
Following on, we'll head to the Italian inspired Odeonsplatz central square, where you'll be able to admire the beautiful scenery of the Nationaltheater Opera House and the Residenz. Here we'll learn about the monarchy in Munich by visiting the former palace belonging to the Wittelsbach monarchs of Bavaria.
We'll also stroll along the mile long Maximilianstrasse, one of four royal boulevards in the city. The exclusive shopping avenue was designed to create a new architectural style which combines history with modernity.
Another important stop on the tour will be the world famous Hofbräuhaus, commissioned in the 16th century because beer in Bavaria had become too expensive. In fact, in the 17th century sales from the brewery contributed up to 50% of Bavaria's income, and it was even an important meeting place which bore witness to historical events such as Hitler's presentation of his 25 point programme.
