Request Private German Resistance Tour Are you looking for a much more personal & intimate tour? A tour catered purely for you? With InMunich Private Tours you get a unique experience with a completely personal & highly experienced guide.

A 3 Hour fully guided tour of Munich's Old City (Altstadt) & the Schwabing District looking at the many groups & individuals who risked & lost their lives resisting the Nazi Party.

Munich was the birthplace of National Socialism & when Hitler came to power in 1933 it would become "The Capital of the Movement".

What is often overlooked by many visitors to the city is that it was also a place of German resistance to the Nazi regime. Die Weisse Rose (the White Rose) & Georg Elser are two prime examples of how many Germans refused to bow in the face of fascist oppression. But if you look further there are many other surprising & unexpected stories that shed light on the often forgotten individuals who stood up despite the consequences.

Our tour will look at Hitler’s rise to power & more importantly, we will explore the multifaceted nature of resistance to the Nazis in Munich & Germany as a whole. Below are some of the many themes discussed & places visited on this walking tour of Munich.

Rise of the Nazis -Early resistance in Munich.

Germany's defeat in 1945- The destruction of the city & its liberation by the U.S. Army 78 years ago.
