The walking tour will begin at the bustling Marienplatz, home to the Old St. Peter’s Church, the landmark Fish’s Fountain, and the Old and New Town Halls. This is also where you will find the famous animated clock Rathaus-Glockenspiel and its beautiful life-sized figures that reenact the stories about kings and knights from 16th-century Bavaria. Your kids will love the singing and dancing figures for sure! Follow your Private Guide to discover more highlights, such as the medieval-era city gate Karlostor and the quirky fountain boy Brunnen Buberl. You will also see important sacral buildings such as St. Michael’s Church and Frauenkirche (Munich Cathedral). The final stop will be at the magnificent palace and gardens of the Residenz, former home of the Bavarian monarchy.

The amazing royal exhibits together with the fun commentary of your guide will make your kids feel like in a fairy tale! Extend to a 4-hour version to also visit the Toy’s Museum, located in the tower of the Old Town Hall. This history museum houses rare and unique children's toys from Europe and USA, including centuries old teddy bears, toy trains, robots and vintage Barbie dolls. You will feel nostalgic for sure! The guide will share interesting facts about the toys to help your children imagine what it was like to grow up without modern toys and technology. The extended walking route will also include the remains of the medieval-era defensive city walk around Maximilianeum, an ideal place to hear more amazing stories about brave knights and princesses.
