What makes this tour special

Historic Munich

You will begin your tour of beautiful Munich, in the historic Old Town, where you will be visiting the 12th century, heart of the city- Marienplatz. Here you will see the neo-gothic Rathaus (New Town Hall), complete with its world-famous Glockenspiel clock. The square also boasts many beautiful boutiques and interesting market stalls, where you will find a variety of local delicious treats on sale, such as German beer, schnitzel and ice cream. A short walk on, you will come across the Viktualienmarkt, a bustling market district, complete with 140 shops and stalls where you can pick up anything from flowers, spices and traditional German treats. 

The Best of German Culture

You will then head back to Marienplatz to see the stunning medieval Frauenkirche (Cathedral of Our Dear Lady), with its little green domes that sit atop its two towers and unrestricted views of beautiful Munich, and the Alps off into the distance. You will then have the pleasure of paying a visit to Odeonsplatz which is home to fantastic German institutions such as the Concert Hall, Theatre, and the Residenz. 

You will then walk on to the historic Bavarian parliament and where you can walk along the Isar and approach the beautiful Englischer Garten. Established in 1789, the Englischer Garten is Munich’s most famous city park and is also the oldest in the world. Here you will encounter must-see attractions including the exceptional Chinesischer Turm (Chinese Tower), surrounded by a gorgeous oriental garden and cafe. After your tour you will either have the option of visiting a local Biergarten or the nearby Hofbrauhaus, a traditional German beer hall, serving amazing German food and the best local beers. Here you will find Oktoberfest all year round!
