Spending a day in Munich

Spending only a day in Munich was not nearly enough; there are just so many interesting museums you need to go to, food you need to taste and attractions you need to admire. A few things a did while being in Munich:

Have a beer in one of the Biergartens – you will find quite a few around the city. (Apparently  it is never to early to have a beer in Munich so don’t worry about what time it is -if you fancy a beer even if it is 9 in the morning it is completely okay!)Biergarten Munich

Find the hidden reminders of second world war. It is not easy to see how big a role Munich played in the second world war. Try and find the hidden artwork and sculptures which has been created as a reminder of the second world war. second world war

Get a freshly squeezed juice, a beer and taste the local dishes at Viktualienmarkt– if you don’t have time to sit down and eat you can get the local specialists in a sandwiches and be on your way to see more attractions.

Walk to the top of ‘Alter Peter’ (St. peters Church) a modest church  from the outside but you can walk up app. 300 steps and you will have a 360 degree view over the city. Go here just before the sun sets for the best view.

Things to do if you have more time in the Munich area: 1) Watch a Opera  2) visit the museum of the Residenz München, 3) go to the Neuschwanstein Castle (2 hours outside the city) 4) have a stroll in The English Garden and see surfers on the man made waves, and 5) visit the concentration camp Dachau (35 min. outside the city).

    I agree with all of those. The picture of the “Leberkaese” Broetchen made me sooo hungry now!
