This 2-hour walking tour visits all the essential highlights in Munich’s historical city center.
You will be met at your hotel or a prearranged meeting point by your guide. We head first to Odeonsplatz to marvel at the stunning architecture of the Odeon, the Feldherrnhalle, and the Theatinerkirche, and see where Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 collapsed in a hail of Bavarian police gunfire. Continuing on foot, our next stop is the iconic domed Frauenkirche – the central cathedral for the state of Bavaria and one of Munich’s foremost architectural symbols.
Next you will delve into the very heart of the city at Marienplatz, Munich’s central square, to see the richly decorated New Town Hall and watch the 43 bells of its historic clock chime the hour. Time will also be taken to visit St. Peter’s Church – the oldest parish church in the city – before heading to sup on a little beer history at the world’s most famous beer hall: the Hofbräuhaus.
Next we continue on foot through the Alter Hof, former residence of Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV, towards the grandiose Residenz – former center of the Wittelsbach monarchy of Bavaria, and the largest city palace in Germany. Finally, to round out the tour, you will walk up to the Siegestor – the ‘Victory Gate’. Initially completed in the mid-19th century and dedicated to the Bavarian army, the former triumphal arch, damaged heavily during Allied bombing raids in WWII, now stands as a monument to peace and the consequences of German militarism.
At the end of the tour your guide will accompany you back to your hotel or, if you’d prefer to stay in the city centre, furnish you with recommendations for further exploration.
