Hello! My name is Jax and I'm a British expat who's lived in Munich since 2016 with my wonderful German wife. I became a tour guide once arriving and fell in love with this type of work so decided to become a professional guide. Over the last 4 years I have worked for two of the best travel agencies in Munich as a freelancer and in March 2021 I started my own tour guide business 'Heart of Munich Tours'. I have received over 250 five-star reviews across TripAdvisor, Google, Get your guide, Viator, and many other platforms. Just search online for 'Jax tour guide Munich' to read some of them. I would say my tour guide style is interactive, passionate, clear, inclusive, fun and sometimes theatrical. I always bring my iPad on tour to share lots of old photos and pictures to help bring history to life!

About the Tour

Join me for a fun and informative 2.5 hour walking tour around the wonderful old city of Munich. Along the way you will learn about the origins of the city, crazy king's, local legends, third Reich history and of course the Bavarian culture, traditions and beer!
The ‘Altstadt’ (old city) might be a small area but around every corner you will find interesting history and architecture spanning the last 860 years. I make sure to take you through a mixture of main squares, alleyways and back streets.
The tour starts and ends in the same place, Munich's centre square Marienplatz. I'll also make sure you get some great recommendations for restaurants, things to do and places to spend an evening watching the sunset.

Area's we usually visit: 

  • Marienplatz
  • New Town Hall
  • Frauenkirche (Cathedral)
  • Odeonsplatz
  • Royal Residence Palace and gardens
  • Hofbräuhaus
  • Viktualienmarkt (food market) 


Start time
April - October 9.30am
Tour finishes after watching the glockenspiel at 12pm

November - March 10.30am
We watch the glockenspiel at 11am and the tour finishes at 1pm. During colder months I will make sure the tour is either undercover or indoors so that you are comfortable.

Note: When tours get fully booked early I usually open an afternoon slot.

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: We meet at the column in the middle of Marienplatz. I will be holding up two signs. 'Free Tour' and 'Heart of Munich Tours'.
