Let Synthia take you to the old town of Munich to explore its famous sights, combining facts and fun to a mix of history and amazing stories. Travel back in time, starting from Marienplatz with the amazing New and Old City Hall, and move over to St Peter’s, first and oldest parish church in Munich. Take in the hustle and bustle of the Viktualienmarkt, the farmers market, and learn how a medieval infirmary turned into this lively spot. There is one special place that must not be missed, of course: the Hofbräuhaus! World’s most famous beerhall with its fascinating history is a crazy melting pot of international tourism and Bavarian traditions. The tour will end with a marvelous mix of noblesse, art and music at Max-Joseph-Platz where our eyes will wander from the Munich Residence to the National Theatre and Opera House. Join the tour “The Highlights of Munich Part 1“ to extend your virtual visit to the main sights in the historic center.
Synthia is a professional tour guide who happily describes herself as a true European. She’s a Munich local with Cypriot roots who grew up in Germany but also studied and worked in the United States, in Greece and Italy. She’s fluent in German, English, French, Italian and Greek. Synthia’s professional career originally took her to the TV marketing business, with Munich being one of the biggest entertainment hubs in Germany. She is a graduate of Media and Communication, Political Science and Italian Literature. In 2017, Synthia made a conscious decision to change course and become a professional Munich guide. She fulfilled her big dream by co-founding her own tour guiding companies, Your Local Friend Tours Munich and Ludwig & Lola Stadtführungen in München. For Synthia, being a tour guide is the best job in the world. Her passion? Meeting people from other countries, showing them around her home city and taking them to her favorite places – virtually as well as in real life. She enjoys long walks and meeting family and friends in one of the many beergardens, and she rides her bike a lot in the wonderfully green city of Munich. Let Synthia take you on a virtual tour to enjoy Munich with a local!
Synthia has been guiding since Jan 2018
