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.
Theresa is a writer and qualified teacher. She taught History and Politics for sixteen years in secondary schools in the UK before leaving the UK in the summer of 2017 in order to move to Munich – one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. She is currently teaching English as a Foreign Language to adults and doing research for a book she is writing on the history and memory of the Third Reich in Munich, something she wrote about in her M.Phil. thesis. She might one day turn her M.Phil. into a PhD but for the time being, when not teaching English or working in the archives, she can be found admiring the Blaue Reiter paintings in the Lenbachhaus, enjoying the changing seasons in the English Garden, wandering around the stalls in the Viktualienmarkt or eating Obazda and pretzels, washed down with a decent Helles, in one of the city’s many beer halls.
Achim is a writer and tour guide originally from Ochsenfurt, a tiny village around a huge sugar factory between the vineyards of Lower Franconia. He obtained his MA from the University of Erlangen after submitting his thesis focusing on the Nuremberg Party Rallies of the NSDAP. He has published travel books on Montenegro and Munich, both currently still in print and well selling in the 4th, respectively 5th edition. He is fully licensed by the Memorial site in Dachau as a docent and has eight years experience of tour guiding in and around Munich with an emphasis on NS related topics, but also claims to prepare the best beer garden food in town.
