Brendan manages the English language branch of one of Munich’s largest tour operators, and also has worked for many years as a guide for the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site. He is experienced in introducing visitors to the full variety of Munich’s culture, lifestyle and history, but likes to specialise in two areas in particular: the art on display in our wonderful galleries; and the darker aspects of 20th century history in the city that was the birthplace of Nazism. His academic background is in literature and history – with a first class degree from Liverpool University, and a past life as a tutor in the Department of Literature at Edinburgh University.
