The City Sightseeing Munich bus tour is a fully narrated journey around all the finest landmarks and attractions at the heart of the Bavarian capital. From the upper deck of your open-top bus you'll have the best vantage point on the road and complete freedom to hop on and off at any point along the three routes. A comprehensive itinerary will take you from the gardens of Nymphenburg Palace in the west all the way to Haidhausen, otherwise known as the 'French Quarter', in the east. In between you'll be placed either next to or within easy walking distance of some of city's top spots, including Marienplatz, Frauenkirche and Englischer Garten.
