I had a great time on this tour. It had the right balance of history, interesting sites, and hot spots to save for later. For a fit guy in his mid 30s, the tour was not very strenuous, which was really nice because I still had some energy after the tour to continue exploring. The tour guide, Michael was very knowledgeable about the area and history and chatting with him was very enjoyable. Recommended!

Take a 2-hour walking tour of Munich to discover one of the darkest moments in the city’s history, learning of the birth of Nazism, the rise of Hitler, and the infamous Third Reich.

Out of this fertile soil of chaos rose the Nazi movement, and one of history’s most powerful dictators, Adolf Hitler. Follow the inception of Nazism, from the first mass meeting at the Hofbräuhaus to the failed attempt to seize power at the Feldherrenhalle. You will go to the site of party rallies at Königsplatz, and stop in the Hofgarten to talk about The White Rose Resistance Movement.

Steph was an excellent guide! It was my first time on a Segway but she made me feel very safe. We’d been on two other tours already and I was worried the tour might be a bit repetitive, but it wasn’t at all. She had lots of interesting stories and showed us some stuff that was a bit off the beaten path. Our group really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to others!
