Courtyards, nooks, alleyways - Munich for insiders:

The city tour for explorers: an official City of Munich guide takes you to very beautiful places off the beaten track. During this guided tour you will discover old and new courtyards, hidden nooks and lanes in the city center. Even those who know Munich already will discover a lot of new and interesting details.

Duration 2 hours

Modern architecture city walk:

During a walk through the Munich city centre with an official City of Munich tour guide you will be inspired by imposing architecture. Just like the Church of our Lady and the Residenz Palace, from a historical viewpoint modern architecture has become an integral part of Munich’s skyline. Renowned building complexes, such as the  Fünf Höfe (“5 Courtyards”) and the Synagogue Ohel Jakob, as well as residential and commercial structures – the buildings created during the last 20 years can all be regarded as architectural highlights which have turned Munich into a metropolis of architecture. The city is undergoing a change: Due to the great variety of modern buildings and renowned architects, such as Herzog & de Meuron and Wandel, Hoefer and Lorch, Munich’s building history is even described as a new “Gründerzeit”, reflecting the time of cultural development at the end of the 19th century.

Duration 2 hours

Historic old town:

A traditional tour covering the most important attractions: explore the most beautiful corners of the historic old town with an official City of Munich tour guide. From Marienplatz (St. Mary’s Square) and Frauenkirche to the Residenz palace and Viktualienmarkt market – this walking tour will introduce you to all the key landmarks in Munich’s old town. As well as interesting facts, the tour is also packed with plenty of funny and surprising anecdotes, highlighting what makes Bavaria’s capital city and its history so unique. Our guides will be happy to discuss any special requests directly.

Duration 1.5 to 2 hours

Without women, nothing works:

Here, it is all about women – the good and the not so good! The tour takes you to places in Munich’s old town which are closely connected with the life of remarkable women from Munich. You will hear of rebellious Wittelsbach women, pioneers of modern art and female entrepreneurs – and you will learn how the fraudster, Adele Spitzeder, separated the residents of Munich from their money in the mid-19th century. The tour through the old town takes visitors to places such as the Munich Kammerspiele (important traditional theatre company), which were shaped by self-confident women like Therese Giehse or there is the Residenz (royal seat), in whose rooms the swindler, Lola Montez, wound the King around her little finger with her Spanish dances. Other women, to whom visitors are introduced during this tour, became iconic in areas which had, for so long, been closed to them; they conquered the stages, galleries and lecture halls of the city and gradually occupied important positions in both politics and business.

Duration 2 hours

Royal Munich:

Follow the tracks of the Bavarian kings with an official City of Munich guide. On January 1, 1806 Bavaria became a kingdom and the popular Max I Joseph was crowned its first king. He was succeeded by Ludwig I, Maximilian II, Ludwig II (the Fairytale King) and – subsequent to the period of prince regents – by Ludwig III. With the latter, the monarchy in Bavaria ended in 1918. You will follow their tracks through the old town along the great splendid boulevards, such as Ludwigstrasse, Brienner Strasse, Maximilianstrasse and across famous squares, such as Max-Joseph-Platz, Promenadeplatz and Marienplatz.

Duration 2 hours

Baroque and Rococo:

See the most beautiful churches in the city centre with an official City of Munich guide. After casting a glance at the first frescoes by Cosmas Damian Asam in Munich in the Dreifaltigkeitskirche (Trinity Church) you will pass Baroque facades and reach Preysing Palais. You will visit Cuvilliés Theater, a Rococo gem. After crossing Marienplatz (St. Mary Square) you will arrive at Munich’s oldest church “Alter Peter“ (Saint Peter’s Church) and head on to Asamkirche, a highlight of church architecture built by the Asam brothers.

Duration 2.5 to 3 hours
