Dealing with customers and travelling around the world was fantastic. Travelling is education in a passive way. One is taught that habits, rules, food etc. are different everywhere. This helps me today, working with a variety of people as a guide.
In 1996 I spent 10 months in the US. Working and living there opened my eyes for North America. In 2005 I was looking for an additional part-time job and I got into tour guiding. I realized quickly that being a tour guide is even better than being a Travel Agent. In 2008 I finally followed my passion and became a full time guide. I haven't regretted it yet.
Bavaria and Munich are blessed with beauty, traditions, mountains, lakes, almost 1500 years of history and -not to forget - beer. Some prominent people have said insightful things about the city, Bavaria and beer. See some quotes on my page.
History facts, stories and sights aside, beer is still important in town. Of course it is fun to spend some time in the famous Hofbräuhaus, but it would be a pity to consume only there. Beer history and the production of beer is an interesting and fascinating story. Good enough to spend some time with a tour that includes beer.
There are some dark spots in Bavarian history, too. The city is the birthplace of the Nazi movement. Dachau close by was the choice for the first Concentration Camp. Here the trial against the White Rose Resistance organization. Near Berchtesgaden is Hitler's former mountain retreat known as the Eagles Nest. If you would like to learn more about this topic, join me for a tour to Eagles Nest, through town or to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial. Since 2007 I am a certified to guide there.
All my tours are suggestions planned and created by experience with other guests. If you have other suggestions let me know. I will customize it to your ideas and wishes. Flexibility is the key, and I will try making it work for you. Let me be the one. I will be happy and proud to take you around and show you my hometown.
A Recent Review of this guide
My husband and I were on a Viking River cruise and took a few days off the boat. We rode the train to the lovely old town of Dachau. Franz picked us up right on time the next morning and took us to the different sites outside of town connected with the Dachau concentration camp. Franz explained much about this area and his knowledge of how this dark time in history started gave us a better understanding. He then delivered us to Munich train station and suggested a great place to eat. Anita Kapperman
