Simone B.

Neuching, Germany

Nice to meet you. My name is Simone. I was born in Munich in 1966 and have lived here with my family most of my life.

At the age of 16 I had the opportunity to spend two years in California. An experience that has influenced my life ever since. Not only did I learn (and learn to love) the English language and the friendly and relaxed atmosphere, it also broadened my view on both my hometown and origin.

After having been an English teacher for toddlers I wanted to extend my field a bit further and become a tour guide, as I love to meet new people from all over the world and show them MY Munich. Strolling around this city (or as some call it, the village with a million inhabitants) is really fun and all the famous sights are quite close together downtown! There is so much to discover: the Gothic Frauenkirche, the Glockenspiel at Marienplatz, parks and palaces. . . Or would you like to try a glass of beer at the Hofbräuhaus, eat out in one of our famous Beer Gardens or go shopping at the Viktualienmarkt, a beautiful market where you can find the finest cheese, spices, fruit and vegetables, flowers and local craftsmanship?

One of the top sites is of course the fairy-tale castle of Neuschwanstein in the Alps. I could take you on a day-trip through the wonderful countryside and show you the castle, picturesque villages and amazing churches on the way. For a great trip back in time I can also recommend an excursion to Rothenburg, a perfect little medieval town or Ratisbon, a medieval tradehub on the Danube, dating back to even Roman times! But Munich also played a sad, important role in the rise of the Third Reich. During my tour of Dachau I will also show you the related sites in Munich for a deeper understanding of this dark era.

When giving tours, my approach is always to give you a very personal, private tour and therefore an individual experience. It's not the amount of sites we "tick off", it is about why this church has been built, who is the king that turned his dreams into stunning reality. I want to show you my cultural heritage and let you be part of it. Being a licensed driver guide I can pick you up conveniently at your hotel and I will be with you throughout the tour, accompany you in the castles and also guide you at the destinations we visit, so you can simply lean back and enjoy!

No matter if you are here for just a short period of time or a whole week - I will show you this wonderful city at your own pace, according to your wishes. Please feel free to contact me for any further information.

Looking forward to meeting YOU!

A Recent Review of this guide

Yesterday we had a tour with Simone. We toured some historic parts of Munich and did a tour of Dachau with her. Simone had fantastic knowledge of her city and told very interesting stories regarding the history of what we saw. She handled Dachau with such dignity and respect while giving us a great tour and understanding of the area. I would strongly recommend Simone for anyone coming to Munich....she was friendly, interesting, knowledgeable and fun to be with!
