As an architect living in Munich, I am happy to show you the hidden architectural treasures of my city. I've been on quite a few trips myself, including Chile, Japan, Australia, South Africa, Europe and the USA. In contact with local people, I have always come closest to the country. In my free time I like to climb and boulder. Born in Germany, I have Spanish roots and ancestors from Estonia - an international mix :) I speak fluent German, English and Spanish and also some French.

Tour description

We will discover hidden and unconventional places in Munich during a two and a half hour city walk.

We experience how the new public theater 'Volkstheater'  connects past and present in the vibrant Schlachthofviertel and immerse ourselves in the lively and colorful world of 'Bahnwärter Thiel' - this dynamic event and cultural space is created from over 40 shipping containers decorated with graffiti.

We will also follow the fascinating transformation of a discarded excursion boat into one of Munich's cultural highlights - the 'Alte Utting'. It's not just the sunset and the newspaper article in the New York Times that are impressive here, but above all the story of how this crazy project came into beeing.

The tour ends in 'Gans Woanders', one of the most extraordinary beer gardens in Munich, whose pizza and rosemary fries I can highly recommend.

Choose from the following languages: German, English or Spanish.

You are welcome to pay in cash or with Paypal at the end of the tour ;)

    I will be waiting for you on Zenettiplatz, at the turquoise and green street furniture (Piazza Zenetti) (corner of Tumblingerstrasse and Zenettistrasse). I can be easily recognized by my colorful backpack. Getting there: It's best to get off at the U3/6 Goetheplatz subway station and walk 10 minutes to Zenettiplatz.

Fantastic tour outside the centre of the city, letting you see some cool things most visitors to Munich might miss. Philipp was also a great guide; very funny and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

Philipp was so great. He was flexible enough to offer an additional tour in EN for only 3 of us & the tour was fun, informatiove and completely different from the city centre / old town tours in Munich. Definitely recommended

Philipp es un arquitecto de Munich con raices de Barcelona.Pero no es un arquitecto común y corriente.En su tiempo libre,se transforma en un guía turístico alternativo,llevando a los visitantes por los rincones más insólitos y secretos de la ciudad. Entre planos arquitectónicos y tours inusuales,Philipp sigue buscando ese lugar especial donde pueda finalmente descansar y vivir su sueño de serenidad en una casa individual. Nos ha encantado😍 Gemma&Climent
