  • Munich: Spooky Tour of Old Town in German

    3. Munich: Spooky Tour of Old Town in German

    Munich does not only offer vibrant life full of light and atmosphere, but also a different, darker side. On this city tour, you explore the uncanny places of the northern Old Town, between the posh Kreuzviertel district with its Promenade Square and the aristocratic Graggenau district with the world famous Wittelsbacher residence. The tour starts at the Frauenkirche, where you meet the devil himself right in the beginning. Learn how he, trying to impede the building of the cathedral, duped himself and left the infamous devil's footprint. But that's not all: Hear about a spooky encounter with a ghost wearing a pointed cap on the cemetery, a cold-hearted scrooge on the Promenade Square and the fat ghost of the gate Maxtor. Probably the most eerie spot of the tour is the tower Jungfernturm, where atrocious screams from those tortured to death were supposedly overheard. Look out for the s...

  • Munich by Bike: Half-Day Tour with Local Guide

    8. Munich by Bike: Half-Day Tour with Local Guide

    Starting from the Hauptbahnhof (Central Train Station), this half-day bicycle tour is a great way to see the city of Munich. Guides are local Munich residents who know the best routes, the best stories, and the best spots to stop for a quick drink. The first stop of the tour is the Neoclassical square, Königsplatz, often called Munich's Acropolis. A few minutes away is the impressive Odeonsplatz. 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. Then the tour stops at the famous Chinese Tower beer garden for refreshments. Cruise along the lovely banks of the river Isar, which leads back into the heart ...

    We loved the bike tour through Munich! Our tour guide (sorry we can't remember her name - young lady with brown hair who studied anthropology) was great!

With this bike tour, you get to explore more areas than you would be able to on foot. Would definitely recommend!

The slightly different city tour with creepy stories that you have certainly not heard since then. With a little luck you might see one or two ghosts or at least know when and where it is worth stopping by :). Have fun and just get involved - I recommend you.

Excellent service. I recommend explaining exactly where the Munich airport pass collection desk is located because I had some difficulties and had to contact the airport info point. However I recommend it

The Segway tour combined with the sights was really good. You get on quickly, you see a lot! A small disadvantage is that you didn't hear the guide during the Segway ride. Otherwise all good…

Thorsten was cool and had fun showing us a part of Munich! Very well versed in the history of this beautiful city!
