HOME OF THE RULERS TOUR IN MUNICH

Our tour "Home of the Rulers" will guide you to many historical buildings in Munich. Whether it's museums like the Bavarian National Museum or the Museum of the Five Continents, memorials like the Angel of Peace or Maxmonument and government buildings like Staatskanzlei or Maximilianeum, you will see them all and you will learn their stories. The biggest highlight is Munich Residence with the Hofgarten, the biggest example for Munich's constant change because of the many different rulers.

WHAT OTHER USERS SAY

When I finally arrived the last stop at Prinz-Carl-Palais, I was amost a little bit sad that the tour is already over. Very entertaining!

So, next time when you visit me, I will know to tell you the story of this statue and why a king chose an Angel of Peace as symbol of a war victory.
