Full description
Munich does not only offer vibrant life full of light and atmosphere, but also a different, darker side. On this city tour, you explore the uncanny places of the northern Old Town, between the posh Kreuzviertel district with its Promenade Square and the aristocratic Graggenau district with the world famous Wittelsbacher residence. The tour starts at the Frauenkirche, where you meet the devil himself right in the beginning. Learn how he, trying to impede the building of the cathedral, duped himself and left the infamous devil's footprint. But that's not all: Hear about a spooky encounter with a ghost wearing a pointed cap on the cemetery, a cold-hearted scrooge on the Promenade Square and the fat ghost of the gate Maxtor. Probably the most eerie spot of the tour is the tower Jungfernturm, where atrocious screams from those tortured to death were supposedly overheard. Look out for the spooky spots in the city center, meet devils, demons, heretics and the doomed and find places, at which horrifying crimes took place and where alleged witches sighed out their soul. Whether you are a long-established inhabitant of Munich or a newcomer, a tourist on a short visit or staying in the city for longer, young or old – this tour offers something to everyone. Because of the spooky contents, the tour is recommended for participants 12 years and up.

The slightly different city tour with creepy stories that you have certainly not heard since then. With a little luck you might see one or two ghosts or at least know when and where it is worth stopping by :). Have fun and just get involved - I recommend you.

Our city guide Thelma took us with a lot of humor and deep knowledge to places that we as Munich didn't even know. Our group with many twelve year olds had a lot of fun. She made sure that everyone listened well and interested and talked a lot about it afterwards.

Super info - lively storytelling

We had the tour with the great leader Brigitte. The tour is planned for 90 minutes -> we had the pleasure that we got 50 minutes extra (it was a little over-covered). Time has passed very quickly due to the lively Munich story about ghosts, murders and terrifying customs. Lots of new stories and information that you can find on normal tours. So would never get it. The tour is highly recommended.
