Hello! My name is Jax and I'm a British expat who's lived in Munich since 2016. Over the past 5 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 company 'Heart of Munich Tours'. So far I have received over 400 five-star reviews across Tripadvisor, Google, Getyourguide, Viator, Guruwalk and other platforms. My free tour is currently the highest rated in Munich across multiple platforms! My guiding style is interactive, passionate, clear spoken, inclusive, fun and at times theatrical. I always bring my iPad on tour to share old photos and pictures to 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!

Area's we usually visit: 

  • Marienplatz
  • New Town Hall
  • Frauenkirche (Cathedral)
  • Odeonsplatz
  • Royal Residence palace gardens
  • Hofbräuhaus
  • Viktualienmarkt (food market) 
  • Glockenspiel (Morning tours only)


I want you to learn but put emphasis on having a good time, so I teach history through telling engaging and fun stories. 

The tour includes a 15-minute break, which allows you to look inside the Hofbräuhaus and go to the toilet, get food and drink. At the end of the tour you will get a list of great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. 

Weather:
During colder months I will do my best to make sure the tour is either undercover or indoors as much as possible so that you are comfortable and during Summer I'll keep you in the shade as much as possible.

The average group size is 10 - 30 people throughout the year depending on the season and what events are happening in the city.

Note: The tour is in English

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: We meet at the column in the middle of Marienplatz. I will be holding a white umbrella which says 'Free tour' and 'Heart of Munich Tours'. Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the tour start time and show your booking email on arrival.

Jaxx is an amazing storyteller & makes history ‘fun’. A personable guy, Jaxx engaged us all w/ interesting anecdotes & kept us moving — and it takes a special person to ‘manage’ a large group in a crowded town square. I’ve taken many free walking tours in Europe & I’d rate Jaxx among the best. Don’t miss Jaxx!

Great walking tour with a good balance of sightseeing and insight view from a local. The guide was exceptionally well prepared and gave the participants a few hints regarding to what to see and what/where to eat.
