Full description

This tour is in German. Start in the very heart of Munich, at Marienplatz (St. Mary's Square) with its beautiful New City Hall and view to Frauenkirche (Cathedral of Our Dear Lady). Marvel at St. Peter's, the first and eldest church of Munich. Go inside to admire its precious interior.

Head to Viktualienmarkt, Germany's biggest food and grocery market with many Bavarian delicacies, to get a feeling for Bavarian food and where you meet some of the vendors. Only some minutes away, visit the famous Hofbräuhaus with its numerous international tourists but also strict Bavarian traditions.

Continue to Max-Joseph-Square to discover the Royal Residence, where the family of Wittelsbach (the Bavaria kings) lived, loved, and ruled. If there is time left, stop at Fieldmarshall's Hall, erected when the old city walls have been demolished. Discover the evolution Munich has experienced from a medieval market through all bright and dark episodes of history to the capital of Bavaria.

Wir hatten eine tolle, an die 1 3/4 Std. dauernde Führung durch die schöne Münchner Innenstadt, inklusive Marienplatz, Alter Peter, Viktualienmarkt, Alter Hof, das Platzl, Hofbräuhaus, Maximilianstraße und Max-Joseph-Platz. Unser Stadtführer Klaus erzählte uns viele interessante Geschichten und auch Anekdoten, die insbesondere Ereignisse im München des Mittelalter lebendig werden ließen. Es war keine Sekunde langweilig, wir haben viel gelernt und gelacht. Vielen Dank!

Unsere Stadtführerin Synthia war der absolute Wahnsinn! Sie hatte Lust und Laune, Zeit, denn sie überzog sogar, punktete mit viel Wissen und netten Episoden und schaffte es außerdem, den Regen abzustellen. Ein großes Lob und Dankeschön von Maren und Volker Garmatter
