5/5 Bavaria Explained.
"I try to always go on a walking tour wherever I go to get to know the place, but this was one of the best. Our guide Katy was a local who knew everything, and was able to answer every question we had. Totally would recommend it."

Hemingway's favorite German city

Ernest Hemingway famously said that once you've seen Munich, "everything else in Germany is a waste of time". We're not sure if that's entirely true (check out our tours in Hamburg and Berlin), but it is true that as far as history, beauty and German beer goes, Munich really does have it all. Join us to see this incredible city through the eyes of Munich’s best local tour guides.

Discover the many faces of Munich with a passionate local guide

The original FREE Tour of Munich starts at Mary's Column in the Marienplatz, and covers many of the top Munich attractions, including the Church of St Peter, the Höfbrauhaus, and the beer hall where Hitler launched the famous Beer Hall Putsch. After you've got the overview with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us!

No visit to the Bavarian capital is complete without a day trip to the stunning Neuschwanstein Castle (including the option to purchase a tour of the castle itself). Being so close to the Austrian border, you may also be interested in joining the day trip to Salzburg.

If you are interested in Nazi history, we have two tours that focus on the darkest period of Munich's history, including the Third Reich Tour, and a day trip to the former Nazi concentration camp Dachau.

However, if you are more interested in the Bavarian beer, you might be interested in joining our Beer Tour, with an overview of the local breweries, and a visit to one of the most popular beer halls in the city. If you're in town during Oktoberfest, we also run a special Oktoberfest Experience. One thing's for sure, the top things to do and see in Munich can all be found on a SANDEMANs tour!

Original FREE Tour, every day of the year

Rain or shine, all of our tours run as scheduled. Book your place online to guarantee your spot! We believe in supporting local communities and are committed to giving a voice to some of Munich's best local freelance tour guides, who passionately share the city's history and culture with their own unique and always-entertaining style. The independent guides who employ us to market their tours conduct the FREE Tour on a tips-only basis, thereby guaranteeing that you receive a tour of the highest quality. They'll never pressure you to tip; we believe that, if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveller.

Neither SANDEMANs NEW Europe, nor the self-employed freelance guides who are the providers of the tours promoted by SANDEMANs NEW Europe, will be held responsible in any way for injuries to body or property incurred during tours. The tour guides reserve the right to deny participation in any tour, to any person, for any reason. Thank you for your understanding.
