A unique hands-on historical and archaeological tour in English.
Here for Oktoberfest? We have changed our format slightly – click here for details
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….
This is not a ghost tour – all the events – every single bone-crunching last one of them – actually happened.
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
Medieval disease and medicine
Ancient burial rites
Why was beer so important? Try an authentic medieval brew!
And much more besides….
Cost?: €18, €17 concessions (Students, seniors 65+, serving or ex-military and/or first responders). Booking essential. Can´t pay online? Drop us an email in the first instance
