This walking tour is an intercultural course in a nutshell to learn about cultural patterns and to reflect on popular stereotypes about German culture. The most common association with Germany is probably potatoes and kraut. This is why the walk starts at the Viktualienmarkt.
We will question stereotypes and develop cultural images based on facts.
The tour continues at the University LMU to learn more about history, science and education and how this influences the working culture in Germany. Then we will browse through the student quarter and talk about society and lifestyles in Germany.
Last but not least we will visit a café at the TU Munich to enjoy the wonderful view and a cold drink.
This is what visitors said:
Grant: This is a wonderful walking tour for people that would like to understand German people better. I learned many things that otherwise can only be understood if I live in Germany for years. It was a very educational tour and I highly recommend it to those that wants to have different kind of "tour" than those typical touristy tours. You get to understand why "certain stereotypical" aspect are wrong or have a good reason behind it.
Elisabeth: Meeting Alexandra was a very nice experience, she knows about culture and her experience is very interesting, we visited the Bohemian district in Munich and I understood and learned a lot of nice things. I will recommend doing the visit of Munich with her.
Michel: Absolutely wonderful experience and, for me, a much better and “fresher” understanding of German/Bavarian culture. Munich is such a great backdrop, so rich in history and, Alexandra a true gem. Thank you, I look fw to coming back one day soon. MG
