Private Guided Walking Tour

Private Guided Walking Tour

Munich is so much more than Bratwurst and Lederhosen!  This “village of a million people” is consistently ranked as one of the best cities in the world in which to live. It’s exactly why it’s ranked so highly that we want to share with you on our private walking tours.

Whether this is your first visit to this amazing city, or you consider yourself already almost Bavarian, we aim to tailor this tour to your liking and desires. Many of our guests prefer we show a combination of highlights in addition to some off-the-beaten track sites. In a few hours we can show you a wealth of sites and special little hidden nooks that make Munich so unique.

Should you have specific requests, such as a more Third Reich history focus, we can do that too. At the time of booking, please just email us with your specific requests. Our engaging expert native English-speaking guides know Munich like the back of their hands and look forward to sharing the sides of Munich that you care to see.


    • Native English-speaking guide
    • This is your private city walking tour. We have a bevy of sites and routes we recommend, and will always tweak the content based on your desires.
    • We can stop along the way for coffee/beer or a snack, if you prefer.
    • As an extra option, we can meet you at your hotel and drop you back off there, using Munich’s great public transport to get us quickly to the main sites.




    Booking a private tour online is fast, easy, and you will receive an instant confirmation.  Once you’ve booked you are ready to tour!  The price of your private tour depends on the size of your group:

    • Groups of up to 2 people are a group-price of €210
    • Groups of up to 5 people are a group-price of €355
    • Groups of up to 8 people are a group-price of €450

    If you have more than 8 people, each additional person over 8 is €49 each.

    To place your booking, first choose which group size fits your group, then select the number of groups of that size you would like to reserve (you will likely be selecting “1” group unless you are booking multiple different groups).  If your group has more than 8 participants, you should select “1 Group of up to 8” then additionally select the number of people over 8 (for example, for a group of 12 people you would select one group of 8 and add 4 extra guests).  Once you add your selection to the cart your total price will be displayed for you to review.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Expand/Collapse What sets Fat Tire Tours apart when it comes to private walking tours?

    First and foremost it’s our guide staff.  They love the city in which they live and look forward to showing you all the unique facets of Munich. They are well-traveled, so can relate well to customers; they’ve been in the tour guiding business for many years so are masters of group dynamics; and they know hidden pockets of Munich that will help make the tour truly memorable.

    Secondarily, we pride ourselves in our customer service.  We’re here to answer any questions you may have. We want your trip to Munich to be as effortless as possible.  We of course also have our satisfaction guarantee, so if for any reason you’re not completely satisfied you get a hassle-free refund.


  • Expand/Collapse How much walking will this tour entail?

    That largely depends on your desires.  In a three-hour walking tour, we’re normally covering about 4 kilometers, or about 2.5 miles.  Should you prefer to use public transport when possible, we can certainly do that. Of course, should you want to stop for a snack or any break along the way, that’s no problem and a great opportunity to plug your guide for more insider tips.

  • Expand/Collapse How do I specify specific desires for this tour regarding content, sites, or stops?

    At the time of booking, please send us an additional email explaining if you have specific desires.  If we don’t hear from you proactively, we’ll reach out to you before the tour to see how we can best tailor this for you.  Additionally, your guide will certainly start the tour asking if there is anything specific of note that you want (or don’t want) included.

  • Expand/Collapse What happens if it rains?

    We strongly recommend dressing appropriately and bringing an umbrella, as our tours take place in all weather.  We understand your time here is limited and we aim to show you the best sides of Munich regardless of weather.  That said, our guides know many sites, buildings, churches, cafes, etc where we can pop in to stay out of the elements as much as possible.


  • Expand/Collapse I really want to experience the beer gardens. Can we do that?

    Absolutely! Munich has some of the best beer gardens in the world. From the quaint to the world-famous, we know them well and happy to include them on a tour and recommend additional ones for later.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for families and children?

    Absolutely! This is a great family activity.  Again, we’re here to help you make the most of your stay. If that means popping in to the Toy Museum or one of Munich’s best toy stores, no problem. We can break often if need be, and our guides know the best places to do that. Or, if this means expanding on some of the content to mimic what a student may have studied, also no problem.
