Hello! My name is Jax and I'm a British expat who's lived in Munich since 2016. Over the years I 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'. Over the years I've received hundreds of 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.

Tour description

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 (Third Reich)
  • 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. 

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 - 35 people throughout the year depending on the season and what events are happening in the city. Although I do most of the tours myself, I do have a small team of guides who also work for me with similar guiding styles.

Note: The tour is in English and maximum group size per booking is 6.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
