Immerse yourself in a lovely and mysterious long-forgotten world and experience the history of the city firsthand. The night watchman is much more than just a tour guide with a lantern in his hand. When the denizens of Munich sleep, the night watchman must maintain peace and order in the alleyways and darkened corners of the city.  He knows all the winds of the maze of the city and is the trusted bearer of dark stories and clandestine societies.  He disdains the modern era, chastises the guests when they don't know about the patron saints of the city, but is always happy to answer when someone asks, "Why does one need so many taps here in Munich?" His response: "For the beer!" The night watchman shepherds his flock at Marktplatz, yet he so scorns the lively nightlife gathering after 21:00 - law-abiding citizens are in bed by then. Head to St. Peter's Church and take a look at the tops of the towers – the night watchman will explain why they stand askew. On the south side, see the old churchyard and hear stories from the gravestones: funeral customs and epitaphs, decomposing corpses, and missing church pews.  At the tower of the Altes Rathaus on the historic "Salzstraße," the old Stadttor comes to life and complains of its rebuilding in the '70s. Here, he questions visitors' piety. Patron saints holy Onuphrius and Henry the Lion will protect the people from sudden death.

Hear about the rich widow's epitaph and Fanny von Ickstatt's unlucky fall from the north tower of the Frauenkirche as the tour of the inner city draws to a close. Then continue to Promenadeplatz with the old "Salzstadel".  Pass the Palais Porcia and Palais Holstein as the night watchman tells the story of the sovereign lord Karl Albrecht, who had the palaces built for his mistress. At the Salvatorkirche, learn about the enormous host desecration and the love story of Henriette Adelaide, the consort of electoral prince Ferdinand Maria, at the "Theatinerkreuzgang." After 10 years, the long sought-after heir to the throne was born, at which point the Theatine Church was built. Finally, the night watchman lets his herd loose into the night to continue his rounds.

Munich Guided Walking Tour - Birthplace of the Third Reich

9. Munich Guided Walking Tour - Birthplace of the Third Reich

In the not-so-distant past, Munich bore the official title, “Hauptstadt der Bewegung” - Capital of the Nazi Movement. This was the city that the Allied Supreme Commander General Eisenhower called “the cradle of the Nazi beast.” Unknown to the casual tourist, many of Munich's buildings carry the mysteries of a dark past, and this 2.5-hour walking tour will uncover those secrets. You will learn how Munich became the birthplace of the Nazi Party and the stage upon which some of the Nazis' most notorious crimes were launched, from Hitler's failed putsch to the horrific Kristallnacht - the largest anti-Semitic pogrom seen in western Europe for centuries, and a dismal milestone on the road to the Holocaust. You will visit the beer-halls that hosted the first small gatherings of the fanatics who one day would lead the Third Reich, and the places where Hitler made his first major speeches. Walk through the streets where Hitler and his Brownshirts fought their way to power, and learn just how they did it. You will go to the official Nazi Headquarters from where Hitler bullied the world, and see buildings that bear the scars of the Second World War. The irony is that while much of central Munich was devastated by Allied bombing, many Nazi buildings survived and still stand today. And standing alongside them are memorials to the city's many victims of Nazism, including those who sacrificed their lives in opposing its hateful ideology.

I am giving 5 stars because I cannot give 10 stars. This tour was one of the most fun experiences my wife and I have ever had. Boris was exceptional in making this tour a memory for us to have forever. He started the tour by bringing us "breakfast" which was a delicous local lager and educated us on the history of Oktoberfest, and continued to give us facts about German beer as we walked to the festival. He then navigated us through all of the festival giving us history on rides dating back over 100 years as well as the original tents and opening ceremonies. He then took us to Augustiner tent for a local experience of the festical, we had an attractive charcutuerie board and pretzel and 2 delicous litres of local German lager. He taught us the "prost" song and continued sharing awesome stories about past Oktoberfest experiences and how to get have the best time while at the festival. I honestly was hesitant to book a tour for Oktoberfest but with Boris I would do it everytime.

Ursula the guide makes it interesting. she is also knowledgeable.. the driver Senat was also very customer oriented. both are a good team
