Downtown Landmarks and Lions

Discover a piece of the Berlin Wall in downtown Baltimore! Stumble upon a War of 1812 cannon ball! Catch a glimpse of the noble lions, hellish fiends, and neo-Egyptian sphinxes that call the buildings downtown home! On this 75 minute guided walking tour participants will learn about the architecture and the history of downtown Baltimore. Our route – less then one mile and stroller friendly – winds through a church yard, continues past a few of the local landmarks that survived the 1904 fire and ends right back where it started at the Baltimore Farmer’s Market!

Sign up for a tour today! Tours start at 9:30am on the first and third Sunday from April through November. Meet at the Baltimore Farmers’ Market – at the Hollywood Diner (N. Holliday and S. Saratoga Streets)
