Hangmen, Whores and Witches Theatrical Tour - German

7. Hangmen, Whores and Witches Theatrical Tour - German

Thoroughly researched facts and entertaining stories will be re-enacted by professional actors. They take visitors on a journey into a long-forgotten world full of lives and fates. The city's history becomes alive and tangible on this tour. Hangmen, whores and witches – what did these three “professions” have in common in Munich? Well, the hangmen were not only occupied in torture chambers or on a gallows mound, they were also pimps! This popular walking tour is centered around witch hunts, prostitution, torture and executions. Why, for example, do witches fly on brooms? Why was the execution site located outside of town? And why does prostitution not exist anymore in the historic center since the 1970s? This walking tour begins at the Neuhauser Tor, where delinquents were led to their execution out of town. Passing through historic Salzstraße, you reach the former Jesuit school from the times of the witch hunts. An argument between the duchess Renata and the Jesuit Father Ignatius brings you right back to the dark 16th century: When during the construction of the St Michaelis Church the tower collapsed, it was obvious that "such an unusual storm was created by the accursed bad women." But it was not only witches that were executed: At the Schöner Turm you will hear the sad story of the unfortunate gold smith. A strong blast of wind will lead you to the landmark of Munich, the Frauenkirche, where you will meet the Prince of Darkness himself: You will find out why the devil helped the master builder to construct the church and why it is so windy here, as well as the transcendental question of the devil's shoe size. On the way, you will hear witch stories about potions, rides on brooms, toads' tongues and children's hands, until you arrive at the magnificent town hall, where the alchemist Marco Bragadino is awaiting us. The supposed gold smith tries to warm us to his arts. At St. Peter's Church we get to know the everyday life of a hangman, how he looked, why he was best avoided or how to obtain a gallows rope. We will also witness a beautiful woman escaping sure death. At the old town hall we will cross the former torture chamber whilst listening to gruesome stories. The Platzl was home to Munich's red light district until the Olympic Games of 1972. What the Spider Murphy Gang sang about in “Skandal im Sperrbezirk” is Munich city history: In the clean, decent “cosmopolitan city with a heart” there was no place anymore for Rosi and her colleagues.

Hello, we spent the weekend in Munich and we were really looking forward to the upcoming bike tour through Munich. Steffi, our guide, was just great! She knew exactly what our interests are, was super flexible with the tour and it was never boring. We learned a lot about Munich, the selected route was great and we gratefully accepted and followed the tips at the end of the tour. You had the feeling of wanting to move to Munich “immediately”, because Steffi managed to pass on her love for the city to us. Thanks for that. We'll definitely be back!!

We had Stefie as our guide. She was super sick. Her knowledge of the city was incredible and she had answers to all of our questions. She told us to buy a fish at the beer gardens and it was amazing. Make sure you also get a pretzel and put the fish in the pretzel. Stefie will show you how. She also rides motorcycles which is pretty sick. I would recommend the tour with Stefie to all my friends who visit Munich. - Bryn, Jordan and Yale

It was very well told with a lot of humor and interesting details. Buggy so that you learn something and not too much so that it stays exciting. I highly recommend. A guided tour around the clock is something special anyway, but with the night watchman as a common thread it was even better :)

A really great and exciting tour. We were captivated right from the start and learned a lot about medieval Munich. It was great fun, thank you very much!

fun and relaxing bike ride with a knowledgeable guide who shares interesting facts and information about the city.
