explore the historic centre, the art district as well as the former site of the Nazi headquarters with a private guide


In four hours we will see the highlights in the historic centre like the medieval court and the Renaissance castle of dukes and kings, a Gothic church and a Baroque Jewel, the medieval salt and grain market and today's colorful Viktualienmarkt. Furthermore we will take a short trip on the tramway to the Maxvorstadt, a quarter that was constructed in the early 19th century and became Munich's art district but was also Hitler's centre of power in these dark times.

Munich and its 850 year old history have so much to offer, let me show you the highlights and give you the background information so the sites will get a meaning.

As Goethe put it: You only see what you know.

A Recent Review of this tour

Simone was terrific ! We arrived 24 hrs later than planned ( airline cancellation ) and was flexible enough to take us out the following day. It was a rainy day so she pivoted quickly and created a combination public transportation/ walking tour for us of Munich. Immediately we could tell she was passionate about her subject and incredibly knowledgeable. She provided a quality and memorable tour ! Anyone going to Munich should consider going out with Simone!
