Munich Macabre


Please note that during the Halloween period we are running an adapted tour –
details here

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….

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
  • 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)

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

How long? Give yourself about 2.5 – 3 hours. We don´t watch the clock like hawks

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