Munich Macabre


A unique hands-on historical and archaeological tour in English.

There is more to Munich than beer, pretzels and lederhosen. Beneath the veneer of a modern European city is another Munich, remote – and yet still here, within touching distance, if you know where to find it….

Dare you join Hans von Spanker and The Wench to discover the awful truth about:


  • The Black Death and other nasties 
  • Medieval architecture and defences
  • Infamous witch trials
  • Traditions and folklore
  • Ancient burial rites
  • Why was beer so important? Try an authentic medieval brew!
  • And much more besides….

Cost: €16, €14 concessions (Students, seniors 65+, serving or ex-military and/or first responders)

When? From May 2018 – Friday and Saturday at 5.15pm – just after the Glockenspiel

How long? Give yourself about 2.5 hours.

Where? We start and finish in Marienplatz, at the foot of Mary´s Column
