#5. Take a Free Historical Walking Tour 

When it comes to history, there is one thing you need to know; Munich is full of it, but it’s not easy to find.

Unlike some cities where memorials on display are nearly impossible to miss, Bavarians have chosen to pay tributes to the past in more subtle ways.

For example, behind Odeonsplatz is a pathway faintly outlined lightly in gold. Walking from Odeonsplatz to Mariensplatz, it would be easy to walk right over it without realizing that it was made famous by those who chose not to salute Nazi soldiers during the Second World War and who, in order to avoid doing so, went out of their way to take another route, the one marked in gold. Many people lost their lives after being identified as having taken a longer path in a silent rebellion.

How do I know this? The free historical walking tour of Munich. It’s is a great way to familiarize yourself with the history, the architecture and a thriving Bavarian culture, rich in history and full of secrets waiting to be uncovered, by you!
