Full description
Your tour starts at Karlsplatz, directly under the arch of Karlsdorf. From there, let your guide lead you through the mysterious history of secret societies in Munich. While some secret societies are working to improve the world, others try to manipulate it with terrible plans, using their hidden influence on political and social events. Whether Knights Templar, Freemasons or Illuminati, all have left their mark on this city. Embark on a search for clues through the center of Munich and learn all about these strange groups.

Your guide will point out to you things that passersby will miss, and help you decipher the symbols of these secret societies. Learn about the multiple societies that were founded in the Bavarian metropolis, many of whom are still surrounded by an aura of the mysterious, even though they no longer exist - at least officially. From the Old Academy to the Michael's Church, then to Frauenkirche and finally to Promenade square, see the parts of Munich most relevant to these groups. Get all your questions answered: were they really only radical Enlighteners, or are they dominating our world even today? What about the Order of the Golden Fleece, whose insignia we encounter everywhere in Munich? Who are the Guglmen, and much more.
