About Big Hat Tours
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.

Private Third Reich Tour

It was in Munich (not Berlin) where Hitler rose to power. Here Hitler's shrapnel-pocked buildings still stand where you'll see Swastikas, Nazi helmets and the largest Nazi Eagles in Germany. Curt's tours are ongoing discussions of more than "when", but how and why it all began in Munich. He covers the military, economic and social aspects of Hitler's Germany.

You'll see sites of mass rallies, book burnings and the sites of Hitler's most famous speeches. You'll view historic photos on an iPad and see before-and-after pictures of the mass destruction of Allied bombings on the city. Curt is a native of the US and has been giving tours in Munich for over ten years.

Our family of four ( with college-age children) recently toured the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site with Curt Milburn. With a family history of Holocaust survivors, touring Dachau was a somber experience. Nevertheless, Curt's extensive knowledge and sensitive rendering
