In this tour, we will delve into the rich history and explore the beautiful architecture of the Bavarian capital. Our walk begins on Marienplatz, a square in the heart of Munich. Let's discover that there are two town halls in the city, and this is hardly a surprise that they are simply defined as ‘New’ and ‘Old’. You will listen to the detailed story about their peaceful co-existence, and also marvel at the enormous marble Marian Column decorated with impressive bronze sculptures. Then, our way will lead us to the superb Neo-Baroque Church of the Holy Ghost. You will step inside and admire the magnificently painted frescoes, the unique vault, and the high altar. After that, we will suddenly change direction and pop into Hofbrauhaus, the legendary tavern of the royal court which is an absolute must for all visitors to Munich. There, you will find Bavarian cuisine, musicians playing in their traditional costumes, and many thrilling facts about this notable place. Farther on the way, we will visit St. Peter’s Church, the city’s oldest one. Prepare to admire its stunning interior, where Baroque and Bavarian Rococo intertwine with the traditional structure of an old Gothic church. The last highlight of our walk will be the Church of Saint John of Nepomuk, which you will surely remember as the ‘holy theater’, as its sumptuous interior looks more like an opera house than a church. Join our tour to experience the greatest architectural adventure in the Old City of Munich!
