Olympic Park and Village

The Olympic Area has a long and multi-facetted history: once a sheep-walk, drill-ground, airport, rubble-heap. Huge earth masses were moved to create the artificial landscape Olympiapark. The intention was to organize "peaceful and happy" games in contrast to the Nazi Olympics in 1936 in Berlin. How is the area used today? Rock and pop concerts, festivals, soccer matches.... the Olympic Park attracts many people and will do so in the future.

National Socialism and Resistance

Hitler came to Munich in 1912, joined the German Worker's Party (DAP) which he molded into the Nazi Party by 1920. After the Putsch of 1923 had failed Hitler succeeded in seizing political power in 1933. Two years later he gave Munich the dubious title "Capital of the Movement" to remind people that his "political career" had started here. Buildings in typical Nazi architecture were erected.

Visits to Museums

Are museums boring? Not at all! Exciting if you get to know what a painting tells you about how it came into being and about the life of its artist; lively if it tells you about life, architec­ture and fashion in those days, interesting if it tells you about the political and social background at that time.

(i.e.Dürer,Titian,Rubens...)

Neue Pinakothek - The Impressionists 

(i.e.Manet,Monet,Van Gogh..)

Munich City Rallye: Get to know Munich with our city rallye!

Equipped with our rallye-paper and a map the participants of our rallye explore the city center in small groups. On the way the rallye-paper offers background information and the participants are invited to answer questions and find explanations. Creativity will be useful and might decide the game.

Our rallye leads to the important sights of the city center: Peter's Church, the market area, Marienplatz, Frauenkirche, Odeonsplatz, the Residence and to the Hofbräuhaus. Among many other things participants have to find out why the white sausages should be eaten before o'clock, we tell you the story why the devil left his footprint in the Frauenkirche and we give you some examples how the old Munich looked like.

All our questions can be answered without knowing Munich and no historical background is required. There are self-explanatory questions to many answers, sometimes a floor-title or a sign on a building helps to find the answer. But, of course, we might also ask tricky questions...

At the end (after 2 to 3 hours) the various teams meet in a nice restaurant. We look through your rallye-papers (approx. 1 hour) and then we will be able to answer the important question: Who is the winning team?

Prices: The price for a group of 10 people is 210 Euro. For each additional participants there is an extra charge of 10 Euro. The price includes reservation of a restaurant; awards to the winners are not included.
