Our tour starts at Marienplatz, Munich’s center of old and new times. Where you would have been once surrounded by motorized traffic, you will now find a pedestrian zone and Munich’s busiest shopping area since the 1970s.
At the Viktualienmarkt, we’ll taste the queen of all Bavarian delicacies: the pretzel, best when washed down with a beer. We will walk to the most royal of all beer halls, the Hofbräuhaus, and hear about its role during the 1972 Olympics.
The subway will take us to the Olympic Park, world-famous for its revolutionary contemporary architecture. From high up on Munich’s highest tower – yes, there’s an elevator – our eyes will wander from the city and beyond to the massive Bavarian Alps.
Car passionistas, listen up! You’re right on the spot where BMW started to become one of the world’s most famous car manufacturers. The BMW World, made of glass and steel, is another architectural masterpiece.
Time for a coffee break before we get into the tram to take us through the districts of Schwabing and Maxvorstadt. Former home to poets, painters and writers in the late 19th century, it is still Munich’s university hub with lots of restaurants and cafés, art galleries and museums, shops and parks.
