The private tour “Best of Munich” is a first-class choice for anyone who wants to get a comprehensive impression of Munich in a few hours. It combines two tours in one, a private walking tour in the old town and a city tour with a local private driver-guide in the urban area. See most of the city's attractions in just half a day.
On the walking tour through the old town you will get to know the history of Munich and see many famous places such as the Hofbräuhaus, the Viktualienmarkt or the Glockenspiel on Marienplatz. You can find more information about this part of the tour at Munich Highlights Walking Tour.
But there are also many famous sights outside of Munich's old town. Explore them on your private city tour and make individual stops wherever you want. A short photo stop in the BMW Welt, a tour of Nymphenburg Palace or the Olympic Park are recommended for more than just a drive by.

Choice of Sights (Tour by Car)
A true highlight on your private city tour is Nymphenburg Palace, one of the largest palaces all over Germany. Its origins go back almost 400 years, when a Bavarian ruler thanked his wife for the birth of a male heir to the throne. It later served the Bavarian ruling family of the Wittelsbacher as a summer residence at the gates of Munich. Decide on site whether you just want to stretch your legs in the Nymphenburg Palace Park or get to know the interior of Nymphenburg Palace on a guided tour with me.
The Munich Olympic Parc is two different things at the same time. A top attraction for visitors from all over the world and a recreational area for the people of Munich who have continued to use the Olympic Park and its facilities since the 1972 Summer Olympics. Be it the Olympiastadion, which serves as Munich's largest open air stage, or the Olympiahalle, which is used for exhibitions and concerts, there is always something going on in the Olympic Parc. A highlight for visitors is certainly a trip to the observation platform of the Olympic Tower, from which one has a magnificent view of the entire city. And when the weather is nice, you can even see the snow-capped peaks of the Alps as far as Austria.
In the immediate vicinity of the Olympic Park is one of the most popular sights in Germany, the BMW Welt, with around 3 million visitors a year. Due to its spectacular architecture, the BMW Welt is not only an attraction for car enthusiasts and makes this stop a must see on this private city tour. The BMW Welt has many faces, it's not only serving as a huge showroom for all brands of the BMW family with Rolls-Royce and Mini. It's an exclusive event location and many customers pick up there new vehicles here. All of this takes place under one roof and makes the BMW Welt Munich's automobile cathedral.
On your Private Munich City Tour you will get to know one of the world's largest inner-city parks, the English Garden in Munich. As the first park in the world built for the public and not for the nobility, it is now one of the inner-city recreational areas for Munich residents. But not only the park, also its 4 beer gardens with a total of 14,000 seats make it so popular with locals and visitors. The largest of these beer gardens is the Chinese Tower, which gets its name from a wooden pagoda in its center. One of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Munich takes place here in winter, a Christmas village in front of a picturesque backdrop.
Perhaps the most famous part of the English Garden is right at its beginning at the “House of Art”. Not only Munich surfers pursue their passion here and surf on a standing wave, international surfing legends have also been guests here. This unique type of inner-city surfing was invented in Munich in the 1970s and, especially in winter, causes astonished looks from visitors when people in neoprene suits and with surfboards are out and about in the city. Definitely a highlight among the sights in Munich of which you can get an extraordinary impression with this video.
