Both are the legacy of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, a 19th-century monarch who wanted to make a grand city for kings. He actually succeeded in making Munich a great city for cyclists. From Odeonsplatz, you'll cycle through the picturesque royal gardens to the Englischer Garten, Europe's largest city park, where nudity happens to be legal.

I would highly recommend this tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city of Munich. It was cold that day and he had wool blankets to keep us warm. We saw many things that we would not of seen by ourselves, and had a great ride as well

There was a certain initial skepticism, but that was just a really cool thing. Falk is not only personable, he is also extremely competent and conveyed the history of Munich to us in a vivid and entertaining way. Simple: top recommendation!

Falke was an excellent guide. we enjoyed his company while he acclimated us to beautiful Germany. He answered all our questions and delivered a beautiful tour!
