Munich : Quick guide
A collegue is going to Munich for business but will have some free time including a weekend there. He asked for recommendations to do.
This article is going live to help him out where I was monkeying with google maps anyhow. Click on an item to see what it looks like.
A-Frauenkirche, B-Viktualienmarkt, C –Sankt Peter Kirchen, D-Hofbräuhaus München and E-Hofgarten are all close to each other and you can walk here. The Viktualienmarkt is best seen on Saturday morning. Not on the map, but you can also wander down Kaufingerstrasse or go North up Ludwigstrasse where there are plenty of shops, bars and cafes.
F Englischer Garten is famous for its nude sunbathers but has 3 beer gardens, the famous one is near the Chinese Tower.
H Hauptbahnhof doesn’t sound like much of a place to visit but on Sundays, this is probably best place to shop. If you are looking for great snacks, this is a good place to come to.
G Olympiapark go up the tower and I BMW Museum and great to wander around where BMW museum is a favorite for car buffs.
J Deutsches Museum if you are into science, is somewhere where you can while away hours.
L Oktoberfest München – not much to see here when it is not a festival
M New Town Hall
N Munich Residenz
Q Bavarian State Opera
R Nymphenburg Palace – a bit out of town but you can catch tram or bus there.
