Guided Tours and Guided, Virtual Tours in Munich

What is a Guided, Virtual Tour?

A Guided, Virtual Tour combines the following parts:

  • An interactive, virtual world which consists of more than a 250 360 degree Panorama photos done in the old town of Munich. The interactive world also covers parts behind the scenes which you cannot discover while you are on-site.​

  • A live tour guide who walks the guests through this interactive world.

  • An online conferencing system (like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex, Got2Meeting, Google Meet) which brings everything together, so that guests feel like they are actually doing a walking tour on the spot. Guests can ask questions so that it feels as close as a real live tour on the spot and enjoy the tour on a PC/Mac or iPad.
