Catherine
I am English, have lived and worked in Munich for over 30 years, and am now retired from being a professional translator. Like so many other foreigners who have settled in Munich, I have fallen in love with the city, and show visitors around with as much pride as if I had designed and invented the place myself. For me, the history, politics and culture of Munich also reflect that of the whole of Germany through the ages. Munich is an agglomeration of many small towns and villages, each with their own unique character, and even after all these years so much remains for me to learn, see and do. There are countless interesting and beautiful sites to explore. I’d love to share some of them with you.

Eduard
I was born in Munich in 1955 and spent most of my live here. Very early my interest in historical events, the roots and the structure, and eminent personalities of my home town, but also in the modern city of Munich started. Since 2015 I’m glad to explain to friendly and interested guests the Munich way of life and climate, the Isar river (Munich’s lifeline), the beer and the churches, very important institutions of the town.

Frank
For 35 years I’ve been living in our beautiful town and I’m still enthusiastic about it. It’s history and many stories characterize it, as well as the mixture of a metropolis on the one hand and a relaxed and comprehensible regional capital on the other hand. It is always exciting to show this to our guests. Seeing our town through our guests’ eyes during our walks is an always interesting opportunity.

Christine

I was born in Munich and grew up here and I have always loved my native city. Quite some time ago – when I was little – I used to live in the city centre. Later on I tried the north and south, west and east. Nowadays I live outside of the city centre, in the east, surrounded by large green spaces, but still in the city. My hobby is the history of Munich.

Andy

I was born in Munich and grew up in a suburb. Since it was near the city centre, I have been familiar with it since my childhood. Nowadays, I live in Neuhausen but I also know other districts of the city very well. I’m interested in the history of Munich and urban development, especially in the context of tradition.

Monika

Although I was born and grew up here in Munich and therefore should know all the nice places, I am always gaining new impressions of the city. Since I have retired, I like to explore Munich on foot – especially on historical walks through the city. I love history and historical stories.

Annette-T_115Annette
It’s now more than 30 years that I’m living in Munich. According to our former mayor I am allowed to call myself a real Munich citizen after such a long time. That means I am accepted as if I was born here. I like to show you around the known and lesser known corners of Schwabing, where I am living. I am interested in the history of the city, in people and in their stories.

FlorianFlorian

I’ve been living in Munich for over 10 years now. I like meeting people from abroad and talking about everyday things. My neighbourhood is Neuhausen/Nymphenburg, which has beautiful houses and small hidden spots. Currently you will find me in in child-friendly restaurants/attractions or enjoying a good Craft Beer .

  1. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne, kurzweilige und informative Stadtführung von Christine. Die Kinder wurden vom begleitenden Hund “General” bestens unterhalten und “bewegt”, während wir Erwachsenen ausgiebig informiert wurden und auf netteste Art München geschichtlich, kulinarisch und aus dem Blickwinkel einer echten Münchnerin gezeigt bekamen. Wir haben die Zeit ganz aus dem Blick verloren und fast einen ganzen herrlichen Tag miteinander verbracht. Ganz herzlichen Dank an Christine!

  2. Wir, 2 Fußgänger, 1 Rollstuhlfahrer besuchten in der ersten Juli Woche München. Pünktlich, am vereinbarten Treffpunkt, holte uns Christine ab. Von 14.00-18.00 Uhr verbrachten wir einen wunderbaren Nachmittag. Wir wurden geführt, informiert, alle Fragen wurden beantwortet – es war wirklich toll. “Danke Christine” sagen Emma, H-G und Christa

  3. We are a couple who love to travel and meet people who help us understand the place we visit, through history, food and drinks, people, strange but reputable places…
    I like the markets attended by local people. In short terms, everything that represents real life.

  4. Yesterday my friends (from Mexico) and I spent a wonderful time while we were walking through Munich, guided by Dr. Frank Esslinger.
    Even for me, who has been living in Munich for more than 30 years it was an afternoon full of interesting news, historical aspects I had never heard before and detailed information about the history of our beautiful city. And after all we had a lot of fun with our charming guide. I can highly recommend this tour!

  5. Durch Zufall lasen wir im Testheft der Stiftung Warentest von der Organisation global greeter network. Da es in München die Munich greeters gibt und wir (4 ältere Ehepaare) ohnehin schon München gebucht hatten und außerdem für alles Neue aufgeschlossen sind, haben wir (etwas kurzfristig) unser Glück versucht.
    Mit Christine und Manuela, die sich in ihrem historischen und aktuellen Bezug ideal ergänzten, hatten wir zwei Greeterinnen, die ihre Liebe zu München auf uns übertragen konnten und die uns mit Informationen versorgten weit über das hinaus, was man beim Rundgang sehen konnte. Wir können nicht oft genug danke sagen an die beiden und werden die Munich greeters all unseren Freunden epfehlen.

  7. Hallo Greeter Freunde,
    was meine Frau und ich am 14.+15.10.2013 in München mit unserer ” Greeterin ” Christine erlebt haben, ist mit Worten kaum zu beschreiben. Ein professioneller Reiseführer aus der Buchhandlung ist eine Farce gegen das, was uns Christine über München in 1,5 Tagen erzählt hatte. Und am Schluss war sie immer noch nicht fertig, weil dauernd neue Sehenswürdigkeiten auf uns einprasselten. Sie hat uns ” Aloysius ” vom Himmel geschickt. Sie ist einfach eine Perle. Sie ist lustig, verständnisvoll liebenswert und fast allwissend, was München angeht.
    Ich kann und muss sie einfach weiterempfehlen.

    Etwas besseres hätte uns in München nicht passieren können………..

    Viele lb. Grüße auch an Christine sendet euch aus dem schönen Niederrhein

    Angelika und Dieter Ziechaus
