Full description
Munich does not only offer vibrant life full of light and atmosphere, but also a different, darker side. On this city tour, you explore the uncanny places of the northern Old Town, between the posh Kreuzviertel district with its Promenade Square and the aristocratic Graggenau district with the world famous Wittelsbacher residence. The tour starts at the Frauenkirche, where you meet the devil himself right in the beginning. Learn how he, trying to impede the building of the cathedral, duped himself and left the infamous devil's footprint. But that's not all: Hear about a spooky encounter with a ghost wearing a pointed cap on the cemetery, a cold-hearted scrooge on the Promenade Square and the fat ghost of the gate Maxtor. Probably the most eerie spot of the tour is the tower Jungfernturm, where atrocious screams from those tortured to death were supposedly overheard. Look out for the spooky spots in the city center, meet devils, demons, heretics and the doomed and find places, at which horrifying crimes took place and where alleged witches sighed out their soul. Whether you are a long-established inhabitant of Munich or a newcomer, a tourist on a short visit or staying in the city for longer, young or old – this tour offers something to everyone. Because of the spooky contents, the tour is recommended for participants 12 years and up.

Very informative tour, with vividly told stories from the Middle Ages. Many facts about Munich's history and life in the Middle Ages that were new to us. The vivid stories and pictures shown give a vivid impression of life in the past. Peppered with many bloody events. There was also candy :-)

Very entertaining and scary presentation of the Munich horror stories. Our scary guide was totally in her element, she was able to convey the events in a way that was scary and very funny at the same time. We had a lot of fun, would like to do it again ❤️
