The Town Clerk of Munich

The Town Clerk of Munich

Barbara Feige

Munich is often called the northernmost city in Italy. This is due on the one hand to the often Italian-style architecture of the old town, but also to the basic attitude of the original Munich residents “live and let live”. This relaxed philosophy and the numerous facets that the Bavarian metropolis has to offer are brought closer to us here by city guide Barbara Feige.

Born and raised in beautiful Munich, she was able to turn her hobby into a profession through fortunate circumstances in 2011 and has been working as a self-employed city guide in Munich and the surrounding area ever since. Every day she feels it is a privilege to present her wonderful hometown to visitors from Germany and abroad.
