Full description
Join your guide on a fabulous walk along the so called "lifeline" of Munich, the Isar River. You will enter a world full of myths and mysteries, whilst simultaneously surrounded by rich nature. The Isar River is not only a popular recreational area for urbanites, but is also a river full of secrets. These secrets reveal themselves when the sun dips towards the horizon and the night spreads its shadow over the Isarauen. It then begins to whisper and crackle in the pastures, rustling and whispering between the reeds and the pebble beach. Perhaps it is the lamenting cry of a lost soul that once found death at the bottom of the raging river and is now in search of salvation, perhaps she is a victim of the sinister Isarnixe, who with her intoxicating chant, already belonged to the raftsmen of earlier centuries into her wet grave lured. After wandering along the shore of the Isar, you will trael back to Thalkirchen. Again and again you will pause, listening to the eerie stories and learning interesting facts about past days in which the Isar still lived as a mythical river and brought death.

Was relaxed, happy and very personal, sure, even with the small number of participants (4 people) e.g. T. to thank. It's praise that it even took place with such a small number. Even a strong thunderstorm didn't upset our leadership. With feet wet up to the calves, we left the Marienklause, where we sought shelter from the rain, and started the way back to the Isar meadows, which unfortunately had to be done quickly because of the rain. It was fun, anytime again!

If you are interested in mystical beings and scary stories, this tour is the right one. Our guide Brigitte was fantastic! With acting talent, gutis and a strong voice, she led us safely through the world of legends and we were happy to come on this journey. There is a small minus point: the specified meeting point was wrong. You meet at the subway exit at the stairs and the ice cream parlor.
