Myths and Legends

On a walk through the old town of Munich, we learn why the Devil left his footprint in the Church of Our Lady, where you can find a cannonball embedded into a church’s outer walls and why a dragon is climbing up a corner of the New City Hall (and how to get rid of him). These and many more mysteries are resolved during this tour.

Munich under Hitler

Learn how Munich succumbed to Hitler and his National Socialist party in the 1920s and how Munich deals with its historic legacy. Following historic locations in the city, squares and buildings, the tour highlights the steps to Hitler’s rise into power and how the city was utilized as a cultic place of worship for fascist propaganda.
