Overview

Munich City, Third Reich, Dachau, Salzburg, Nuremberg and Neuschwanstein and other Ludwig II Castles. A tour with Curt Milburn is like having a welcoming family friend show you around Munich. Curt's been called "The Wikipedia of History". He specializes in small group and private tours. Tours are tailor-made and Curt finds out what YOU want to see. His City Tours go beyond canned, set routes. You'll see the famous sites, architecture, learn about kings, Hitler, foods and beer. Our Third Reich Tours delve deep into more than when, but why and how the Nazis came to power and you'll see the bombed buildings of Hitler. Curt's Dachau tours are sensitive and remarkably moving and his Neuschwanstein and Castle tours are great fun. Salzburg & Nuremberg are within your reach with Big Hat Tours! Every tour is accompanied by an Apple i-Pad with hundreds of photos to put you into history.

My family took 4 tours with Curt; Dachau, 3rd Reich, City Tour and Salzburg. My favorite was Dachau. It was a somber visit that Curt managed to bring “alive” through his knowledge and stories. Not everyone is allowed to be a Dachau Guide and Curt...More

Curt provided an insightful and enjoyable small group tour of Third Reich history, locations, and events in Munich. A nice balance of historical overview with details and anecdotes. Many of the these sites aren’t marked by plaques or noted in guidebooks, so having Curt provide...More

Maybe Kurt was having a bad day but we were all very disappointed with our three hour walking tour of Munich. First, let me say that we’re a very friendly, easy going and respectful group. We had only one day in Munich and wanted to...More

Curt provided the perfect balance of information and quiet personal time to absorb the gravity of a chilling moment in history and insight into the human heart. Curt weaves details he learned from talking with camp survivors with a timeline of the events of the...More

Another visit and great tour with Curt, this time with the family. Even though it had been several years since the our last tour, Curt’s enthusiasm for Munich remains. As for walking tours he is likely the best and most informative. The other tour guides...More
