What You Can Expect

Third Reich Bike Tour in Munich

Depart from central Munich to see locations connected to Nazi history

At Marienplatz, Munich’s ambient central square, you’ll greet your guide, don a protective helmet and climb onto your bike. Set off at a leisurely pace and begin to explore significant sites associated with the Third Reich. 

Stop at the former head office of Hitler’s initial political party, the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), and pedal past Hofbrauhaus beer hall, where Hitler delivered one of his first speeches on Nazism.

During regular breaks, you’ll listen to history-rich commentary that details Munich’s turbulent history. Visit Odeonsplatz square, the historic site of a clash between Bavarian troupes and the Nazis in 1923, and quietly reflect at poignant memorials dedicated to those who fought against the Third Reich. 

In a traditional Munich beer garden, you’ll revitalize with snacks (own expense) and then hop back on your bike to cycle to sites such as the English Garden Park (Englischer Garten), and St-Jakobs-Platz, the Jewish heart of the city and the site of the new Jewish Synagogue.

When your tour comes to a conclusion, bid your guide farewell at a central Munich location.

Chris, our Aussie guide, was awesome. He knew his history, informed us well. He was enthusiastic and managed to keep the tour very upbeat and fun, despite the seriousness of it. It's worth noting that we saw much of Munich on this tour, including everything on the Top Ten Things To Do In Munich lists found online. This tour covered resistance fighters/sights as well. It is worth noting that the company that runs these bike tours is run very well and efficiently. They were professional yet fun, and punctual! We went on three tours in Paris that were twice the price that didn't compare to this tour. The Third Reich Bike tour is perfect for anyone looking to see historical sights of all kinds while in Munich, and I will absolutely recommend family and friends to take it.

Will and Chris were fantastic tour guides through the streets of Munich. We learned more from this tour than any history class. It is uncanny and unnerving to walk in the plazas and see buildings that Hitler inhabited. We will be booking through the bike company again for sure!

One recommendation: make sure that future participants sign and swear they understand 1 they are on a BIKE tour 2 that they know how to RIDE a bike and 3 understand international driving signs and signals green means go, red means stop.
