Full description
Experience the uncanny side of Munich on a walking tour of the southern old town. Meet the dishonest figures of the city, who with dirty hands remained on the fringes of society. Go back in time to when death was part of the everyday. Stroll through the lively Angers quarter to see the famous Viktualienmarkt and Hackenviertel with the Hofstatt. Meet shady characters, from hangmen to witches. Learn where the grave-digger shouldered his spade, where ravens circled, and where executioners whipped their hatchets. See remains of the rogue rabble that made the streets unsafe, when the good citizens retired for the night. Visit cursed places, and learn of the scary events that took place there. Walk from Frauenkiche to the Sendlinger Tor, criss-crossing the Hackenviertel.

    Exciting, interesting and very witty, historically correct

    Our guide Brigitte was extremely good at taking us all back in history and introducing us to the customs, methods of torture, customs and people, their professions and classes in a very pictorial, vivid and entertaining way. And it was clear that she was not just telling fairy tales and horror stories, but really had historical knowledge, that she described them very lively and vividly. It was not a rip-off event, but an extremely entertaining tour where you also learned a lot. We loved it!
