Pass through Munich's many sights, and immerse yourself in German culture and history, discovering all the best points of the Bavarian capital on this free tour.
Free Walking Tour of Munich
The tour begins at 10.45 am in front of Fish's Fountain in Marienplatz, in the centre of Munich. Marienplatz is home to both the new and old town halls, two of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Here we will stop to see the famous Rathaus-Glockenspiel, and learn the history behind its wooden figures.
Passing through the main shopping streets which surround Marienplatz the tour arrives at Frauenkirche, the Munich Cathedral. Here we'll contemplate the majestic facade of the city's largest church, built on the site of an ancient Roman basilica, and pass over the recent history of the city.
Fünf Höfe (shopping mall). Then we'll move onto the iconic Odeonsplatz square, where we'll find the Feldherrnhalle, a monumental loggia built to honor the Bavarian Army in the 19th century.
Our next destination will be the Theatinerkirche, a church that was built in Italian high-Baroque style in the 17th century. Then, we'll move on to the Viscardigasse, also known as the "Shirker's Alley", the place where locals could circumvent the nearby Nazi memorial to avoid the requirement to render a Hitler salute to the nearby guarded memorial.
Next, we'll pass by the Munich Residenz, the former royal palace of the Wittelsbach monarchs of Bavaria. Then, the tour arrives at the National Theatre and State Opera, the Bayerische Staatsoper, where the famous Bavaria State Orchestra plays.
Maximilianstraße will be our next destination. This is one of the city's four royal avenues and was named after the king who commissioned its construction: King Maximilian II of Bavaria.
As the perfect finishing tour to the tour, we'll guide the tour to Hofbräuhaus, Germany's most famous beer hall. It is in this strategic spot, that we'll part ways at 1.15 pm to let you keep enjoying the city at your own leisure.
