Munich Macabre

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

For Oktoberfest 2018 we are pleased to offer a rather grisly group evening tour. Building on our unique “Munich Macabre” tour, for this Oktoberfest  we give you more:

  • More terrible tales of misdeeds and injustice!
  • More beer!
  • More sordid debauchery!
  • More hands on history!

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:


Your guide, Hans von Spanker. Ask him nicely and he will show you his weapon

  • The Black Death and other nasties 
  • Medieval architecture and defences
  • Hygiene and medical care
  • Swords and armour
  • Infamous witch trials
  • Traditions and folklore
  • Ancient burial rites
  • And much more besides….

Cost: €22, €18 concessions (Students, seniors 65+, serving or ex-military and/or first responders)

When? From Friday 21st September (The day before Oktoberfest starts), at 5.15pm – just after the Glockenspiel.



Take a drink – with Death himself!

The tour does not run every evening during Oktoberfest – please check the calendar for details. Booking essential

How long? Give yourself about 3 hours. We don´t watch the clock like hawks – and sometimes we do go a bit over – but the time does go quickly… it does when you are having this much fun.

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

The Wench: a good, god-fearing girl?
