Here's a map of the sites connected to the White Rose movement mentioned on this page. You can click on it for more information about each of the points along the way. I recommend you start at the top of the "line" which is the former Scholl student residence.
The line ends at the tram stop you need to get to if you want to continue on to the cemetery where Hans and Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst are buried. Zoom out to see this point, which is in Munich's south.
