One Weekend in Munich – What Munich has to offer
Whether you are planning a city trip or are on a business meeting – Munich is always worth a visit. But what else besides Marienplatz and an evening at the beer garden is there to do on a weekend in Munich? We have a few ideas here on how to get the best impression of Munich.
Bavarian charm and beer – that’s what Munich is famous for. But Munich is more versatile than its reputation allows. Between beer gardens and old architecture there are some beautiful and mysterious corners hiding in Munich. We know which one you must have seen in any case when in Munich.
The first impression counts
If you want a really good first impression of Munich you only have to take a walk through the city centre. Starting at the university through the small streets towards Odeonsplatz, where one gets by after a small detour through the Hofgarten and Lehel to the Marienplatz. There, you can lionize town hall and maybe the glockenspiel plays for you.
View from Alter Peter
Anyone who has ever been to Marienplatz should not miss the view from Old Peter. The church is located between Marienplatz and Viktualienmarkt and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Munich. But first you have to climb the tower, and for that you need a long breath, but it’s worth the climb.
Museums on Sunday
Munich offers culture lovers numerous and diverse museums. Especially the Pinakotheken are well known beyond the city limits of Munich. Therefore, you should visit at least one of the three art museums. Important information: Every Sunday you can visit all three Pinakotheken for only 1 €.
If we are already talking about museums, we can definitely recommend the Deutsches Museum. There you will find information and history about the respective topics, from space travel to instruments. For families, it is definitely worth spending a Sunday afternoon there, as the museum is especially child-friendly.
If you think that Neuschwanstein Castle is too far away from Munich city centre, you should definitely visit Schloss Nymphenburg. The castle impresses not only with its beautiful building, but also with its wide and wonderfully landscaped gardens. A walk through the park is a must, especially for photography enthusiasts.
The Eisbach Wave
Many tourists are also drawn to the Eisbach wave, where surfers can show off their board skills on an artificial wave. This Munich attraction can be perfectly combined with a long walk through the English Garden. Just get off at the university and drift through the green towards Lehel.
The Viktualienmarkt is already one of Munich’s landmarks. Between the all the hustle you will find many delicacies and all kinds of other things. You will also get to know a small piece of old Munich tradition.
