A look back at Munich's rich 859 year history.


A 2. 5 hour pleasant stroll through Munich's beautiful and historical Altstadt and a look back at the city's rich 859 year history. You will visit all the major highlights of the city including Marienplatz, the Frauenkirche (cathedral), Alte Peter Church, Hofbräuhaus, Viktualienmarkt, National Theater, the Residenz and Odeonsplatz. You will be able to watch the famous Glockenspiel, and lunch at the Viktualienmarkt or one of the many beer halls or Bavarian guests houses. (I can suggest some of my favourite eateries in town).
We can also include a visit to the BMW WELT and Olympic Park if you wish.

This tour can be completely "tailor made" to your own personal interests, combining "Third Reich" sites if you wish.

Itinerary

We will begin the tour in Munich's heart "MARIENPLATZ", the main square where the city began, where we will later have an opportunity to watch the famous Glockenspiel. From there we will take a gentle stroll through the Viktualienmarkt (the city market place), the world famous Hofbräuhaus beerhall, continue on to Odeonsplatz and the Residenz palace, and visit Munich's 15th century cathedral, the Frauenkirche.
We will finish approx. 2. 50 hours later back in the main square to view the Glockenspiel.
I can make suggestions for your lunch or dinner after the tour.

Our Munich tour with Maxine was excellent. She has deep historical and local knowledge. She adapted the tour around our interests and we had a wonderful, memorable lunch at the end of tour in a spot only local go. I would use her again and recommend her highly.
