Munich Macabre


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

Hans a happy bugger

Hans von Spanker and his impressive weapon

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….
