It is a little known fact that until World War I, the German “influence in Manchester was stronger in Manchester than in any other European city”. Germans working in all fields were drawn to Manchester to experience life in the original modern city, many made it their home and left a lasting legacy.
As we explore the lives of a writer, musician, doctor, sportsman, Civil War mercenary, political theorist, banker, cultural catalyst and others, we will ask “what have the Germans ever done for us?” (apart from bring us the Christmas markets!)
The tour is lead by Emma Fox of Manchester Guided Tours.
