Overview

This guided tour of Munich by night pulls away the modern façade of the city to uncover its eerie past. As you wander through dim twisting alleys and ancient graveyards, hear the passionate and tragic tales of murder, love, and mystery.

The two-hour walk gives a grim perspective on the Marienplatz, now home to the New City Hall, and exposes corners of the city hidden in daylight.

Let the cobbled streets of medieval Munich open up and reveal their terrifying stories of torture, madness, witches, and murder before you head back to your hotel with the best wishes for a good night’s rest.

Itinerary

The Moonlight Tour of Munich’s Haunted Past starts at the Radius Tours Office in Munich Central Train Station (Hauptbahnhof, Bahnhofplatz), across from platforms 32-34. Please make your own arrangements to meet here 15 minutes before the tour is scheduled to start. The expert guide will begin the tour from here.

As night settles in, your tour will take you around central Munich and through the medieval parts of the city, with the guide narrating the dramatic tales of the city’s past all the while. You’ll see the favourite haunts of devils and the tucked-away shops once run by witches, and then hear of the witch-hunts they inspired.

The Marienplatz, a bustling hub of activity during the day, is reminded of its gory past as you walk through it at night. The guide will take you into the square to understand the role of the executioner, whose bloody metal blade testified the tyranny, bigotry, and the misfortune of many in the Middle Ages. The journey continues through alleys and graveyards as the city’s buried history unfolds.

The tour ends two hours later in central Munich, and the guide can give directions to hotels from there.
