Munich General Private Tour

Explore Munich in depth on this 3-hour private walking tour

ABOUT THE Munich General Private Tour

This 3-hour tour is a more in-depth version of our Appetiser Private Tour. On this private walking tour, you will see top landmarks and discover the stories behind great sights such as the Glockenspiel, the Hofbräuhaus (the world's most famous beer hall) and Frauenkirche. You'll learn the real origins of Oktoberfest and the history of beer gardens.

We begin the tour on Marienplatz and watch the most famous Glockenspiel in the world. We then head through the medieval heart of Munich admiring the simple beauty of the Frauenkirche whose twin towers dominate the city's skyline before hearing tales of the Bavarian royal family, the turbulent 20th century and the early days of the Nazi Party. Of course no visit would be complete without discussing why beer matters so much to Bavarians and why it tastes so good - there's even time to see the world's most famous beer hall.

This tour includes an optional short break for you to have a refreshment.

We can adapt the tour for you, even when booking online! You will be asked some questions during the checkout process to help us better tailor the tour to the needs of your group.

Our recommendation: Highly recommended to join during your first day in the city! Our unique guiding style of combining history with pure showmanship has made us one of the most popular walking tour companies in all of Europe!
