What do you want to do after the tour? The tour usually ends about five minutes walk from the English Garden, one of the largest urban parks in the world where you can discover the wave that makes Munich a surfing city and the surfers lining up along the bank taking turns entering the water with their boards.

On this three-hour walking tour, we examine the infamous streets where some of the darkest stories of human history took root and grew into Hitler’s dictatorship. Hitler called Munich ‘Die Hauptstadt der Bewegung’ (the Capital of the Movement); the city and its surrounds were central to the rise to power of the Nazi leader.

We ask how a nation of people known for their level-headed thinking allowed what is perhaps the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century to happen and how the world lay sleeping while the Nazis built their war machine and solidified power.

Munich emerged from almost complete destruction during the Allied WWII bombings and was restored to its former glory. But the scars still remain. During the tour, our expert guides reveal the traces of the past and the irrevocable footprints of Nazi rule still visible today and finally answer the question: could it happen again?


This tour covers:
  • Brienner Straße
  • The Führerbau
  • Karolinenplatz
  • Square of the victims of National Socialism
  • Königsplatz
  • Sterneckerbräu

  • Memorial to German resistance movements and their heroes
  • The ruins of the temples of honor
  • The rise of National Socialism in Germany
  • Vergangenheitsbewältigung: coming to terms with the past

Our recommendation: If you are passionate about history, this tour is a must to discover Munich'’s history!

What do you want to do after the tour? The tours ends at the core of the vibrant university district of Maxvorstadt, where there are plenty of  bars and Cafes where you can chill after your tour!

This full-day excursion begins with a two-hour train journey with fantastic views from Munich Hauptbahnhof. After we arrive in Salzburg, we’ll lead you on a 2.5-hour orientation walking tour of the old town center, taking in some of the most beautiful and historic sites the city has to offer.

In March 1933, Heinrich Himmler ordered the construction of the one of Germany's first concentration camps in a small town near Munich; Dachau. The first 5,000 prisoners were political enemies of the Nazi regime.

In the following years, other social, ethnic, and racial enemies were imprisoned as Dachau went on to become the only concentration camp to remain active during the entire Third Reich period (1933-1945). At the time of liberation, over 200,000 prisoners from more than 30 nations had been imprisoned there.

On this 5-hour tour with memorial-accredited, native English speaking guides, you will explore what has become one of the most important centers of remembrance, contemplation, and learning in Germany today.


This tour covers:  
  • Former SS Training Camp
  • Appellplatz (Roll Call Square)
  • Administration Building
  • Prisoner’s arrival at the camp
  • Prisoner categories
  • Punishment
  • Nandor Gild Monument

Towering over rocky crags at the foot of the German Alps, Neuschwanstein Castle has inspired awe and wonder ever since it opened to the public in 1886.

A two-hour train journey through the majestic Bavarian countryside takes us to the idyllic setting of Neuschwanstein. You’ll take in the splendor of the village of Hohenschwangau and the neighboring castle of Neuschwanstein and discuss the famous Lohengrin legend while overlooking the Alpsee.

A short climb up to the Marienbrücke reveals picture-perfect views of this 19th-century, neo-romantic masterpiece. From the courtyard you will hear the story of the budget-busting, problematic construction of Neuschwanstein Castle.

Whether you choose to take the 35-minute tour inside the castle (an extra cost of €13) or decide to spend this time exploring the foothills of the Bavarian Alps while your guide describes the lavish castle interior, this tour will leave you wanting for nothing in the epic story of Neuschwanstein Castle and ‘Mad’ King Ludwig in all its magic, romance, and absurdity.

At the end of the tour, we attempt to unravel the ambiguity of King Ludwig II of Bavaria, who wished to ‘remain an eternal enigma’. Will you be the one to unlock the mystery surrounding his death - a mystery which persists to this day!

This tour is a full-day, fairytale adventure that is not to be missed! It covers:
  • The life and passions of Ludwig II
  • Ludwig’s mysterious death – conspiracy, suicide, or tragedy?
  • Neuschwanstein Castle
  • The ‘madness’ of King Ludwig, the Swan King
  • The stunning Bavarian countryside and Alps
  • The Marienbrücke*
  • Hohenschwangau Castle (view from outside only)
  • The Pöllat waterfall gorge
  • Ludwig’s patronage of Richard Wagner

Our recommendation: Note from the train station to the castle, there is a small hill that we would need to walk, remember to bring comfortable shoes. During the summer months you may have the opportunity to bath in a lake so don’t forget to bring your bathing suits. In the winter months you will see people walking on the frozen lake!
