"Munich, Germany

"Munich, Germany's Secret Capital"


"Munich is the only German metropolis that seems to have everything – wealth, beauty, prominence, fame. Some even call it Germany’s “secret capital.” Unlike Berlin, which some dub “architecturally challenged,” Munich bursts with historical buildings reconstructed after the devastation of World War II. Its grand Residenz, the former home of Bavarian kings, dominates the city center, which also boasts the flamboyant, gilded Cuvillié Theater. Nearby, the neo-gothic Neues Rathaus gives a medieval touch to the Marienplatz, the heart of Munich. "

WERNER HARTLIEB

Years of Experience: 20 years

I enjoy sharing insights about the always-changing countries of Central Europe. What I like just as much, if not more, is the camaraderie that guests form. With each tour, I am astonished by this. A group of strangers at the start, they get acquainted with each other in a pleasant way and sometimes take home friendships for life. I think it is great this takes place while exploring new regions and discovering new cultures.
