You can’t tour the Alter Hof - it’s been used for government administration since the 1800s - but you can walk through the courtyard. In summer it’s a scene for open-air concerts and theatre performances.
Location: Burg Strasse 8
Directions: Take any S-Bahn or U-Bahn 3 or 6 to Marienplatz, then walk around to the right of the Neues Rathaus. It’s then a quick walk down Altenhof Strasse on your right.
Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.

It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
