Overview

Discover the best of Munich on a hop-on hop-off tour in a comfortable open-air double-decker bus.

This tour is perfect for travelers on a tight schedule because it takes just 1 hour to complete an entire loop and see the main sights of the city. But, if you have more time, you can take a more leisurely approach and spend 24 hours exploring the city. Your flexible ticket allows you to jump on and off the bus all day to visit the attractions, catch a bite to eat or go shopping. The choice is yours.

Hop off at Alte Pinakothek to view masterpieces by great artists of the 14th to 18th centuries. Or get out at Marienplatz to see the New Town Hall with its great tower and famous Glockenspiel (or carillon), St. Peter’s Cathedral, the open-air market and the Old Town Hall.

If you want to relax, stop at Karlsplatz (Stachus), once the site of a famous beer garden and a favorite spot for locals to hang out. If you love glamorous shops, get out at Max-Joseph-Platz and wander down Maximilianstraße, Munich’s most famous shopping street.

While you’re traveling on the bus, an informative multi-lingual audio-guide will make sure you don’t miss a thing.

The Munich Express Hop-On Hop-Off Tour departs from designated meeting point.

The Munich Express tour is perfect for travellers with limited time. It shows you the main highlights of the city from an open air double-decker bus.

Your ticket is valid for the entire day. You may get on and off at every stop. Just look for the blue double-decker buses.

A complete Express Circle tour without getting on and off lasts 1 hour. An audio-guide in English and German will tell you about all the places you are seeing.

Munich, the capital of Bavaria, is a large cosmopolitan city that manages to be remarkably compact and easy to get around. There are six stops on your hop-on hop-off bus tour and they are listed below:

Train Station/ Bahnhofplatz: Munich’s main railway station. The bus stop is in front of department store “Karstadt”.

Pinakotheken: This art museum houses a fabulous collection of “Old Masters”. Works by many of the greatest Dutch, Flemish, German and Italian artists of the 14th to 18th centuries are found here; indeed the museum boasts the largest Rubens collection in the world.

Odeonsplatz: This square is named after the “Odeon”, a large 19th century concert hall designed by the architect Leo von Klenze. The hall was heavily damaged in World War II and later turned into a government building.

Max-Joseph-Platz: This neo-classical square is named after the first king of Bavaria – Maximilian I Joseph. It houses some of the city’s most magnificent buildings including the Nationaltheater – Munich’s large opera house, and the Residenz – the former royal palace, now open to the public. This is a good jumping off point for chic Maximilianstraße, Munich’s most glamorous shopping street.

Marienplatz: In the Middle Ages, this square held a market and was used for events such as tournaments. Originally known as Schrannen, the square was renamed Marienplatz (St. Mary's Square) as a way of asking the Virgin Mary to protect the town from a cholera epidemic. Jump off here to see the New Town Hall with its soaring 79 m tower and the famous Glockenspiel (or carillon), the Old City Hall with its toy Museum, St Peter’s Church, the New Jewish Cultural Center, the open-air market and the Hofbrauhaus (Beer Hall).

Karlsplatz – Stachus: The official name of this large square is Karlsplatz but it is usually called Stachus after a popular inn and beer garden that stood there in the 18th century. Important buildings here include Karlstor, one of the city’s medieval gates, the neo-baroque Justizpalast (Palace of Justice) and the Kaufhof, the first post-war department store of Munich.

Underneath Stachus is a large shopping center and between the square and Marienplatz is the main pedestrian area of the city (Neuhauser Strasse / Kaufinger Strasse) which has numerous shops and restaurants.

In summer this is a popular place for people to take a break from shopping and sightseeing; in winter the fountain is transformed into an ice skating rink.

You can end your tour wherever you like.
