Experience Bavarian tradition

The centre of Munich, the Bavarian metropolis, is home to some of the most famous landmarks in the city. The top things to see in Munich include Mary's Square (Marienplatz), Frauenkirche, St. Peter's Church (Alter Peter) and Viktualienmarkt. These tourist magnets are not only fascinating and rich in history but free to visit.
The city is known worldwide for hosting the famous Oktoberfest. Munich offers this and much more. Let yourself be fascinated by the city's flair during a break. Visit its museums and enjoy memorable sunsets with a rooftop view over Munich.

Explore Munich's most prominent park

Munich's English Garden (Englischer Garten) is one of the most beautiful city parks in the world, more extensive than Central Park, Comprising 375 hectares. This vast green space runs from Altstadtring to the northeast of Munich along the west bank of the River Isar.
The English Garden is popular among locals and tourists, a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. The park combines relaxation and activities with something for everyone to enjoy.
Have you ever heard of the Eisbachwelle? Without any ocean access close by, people go surfing in the middle of the park! The Eisbachwelle is the world's most constant and most significant river wave within a major city. People have been surfing here for decades on waves about half a metre. Only experienced surfers should attempt to surf here. But if anyone you can swim and float through the English Garden's river.
The 25-metre Chinese Tower is one of the most famous buildings in the English Garden, a pagoda from 1789 built in the imperial Chinese style. In summer, the Kocherlball takes place here, where a crowd gathers for the annual dance event at dawn. As the sun slowly rises, young and old dance to their favourite folk songs.
Don't miss the Temple Monopteros. The ornamental temple built in Greek style is the best viewpoint in the park. From here, you can overlook the southern English Garden all the way to the towers of Munich's city centre.

Stop for a drink in the English Garden

A long walk through the English Garden can leave you looking for something to eat and drink. Why not take a break in one of the park's many beer gardens (Biergarten)?
Beer garden culture has been a tradition in Munich for more than 200 years. These open-air drinking spots are among the city's top attractions. In Munich, you're even allowed to bring your own snacks!
The Seehaus beer garden is an idyllic and romantic spot for a couple of drinks. Pick a bench on the lakeside and sip some cold beers before continuing your day.

What to see in Munich City Centre

We continue with our city trip to the centre of Munich. The city's heart is reasonably compact, so walking from place to place is easy. Whether you visit St. Mary's Square and the city hall, Frauenkirche or Viktualienmarkt, you won't need to travel far to get to your next stop.

St. Mary's Square

St. Mary's Square is a perfect starting point. Why not enjoy a leisurely morning before heading into the city centre at lunchtime, when the Glockenspiel(chimes) ring in the square?
For a long time, there was only one town hall on Marienplatz. The New Town Hall was built between 1867 and 1909 in neo-Gothic style, which makes it seem older. The Old Town Hall, however, is almost 400 years older.

The Frauenkirche and Alter Peter

The Frauenkirche (women's church) is also in central Munich. Head here to see the two towers stretching over 99 metres into the sky. The cathedral (the Cathedral of Our Lady in Munich's Old Town) is a landmark of the city and belongs among the top things to do in Munich.
It's free to visit inside the Frauenkirche and well worth the time you'll spend inside. Climb the tower of Munich's oldest parish church, Alter Peter, to view The Frauenkirche from above. Not to mention a beautiful view of the city's rooftops.

Munich Residenz

Whether you love beautiful architecture and history or want a memorable day out, Munich Residenz is a must. This former royal palace is the largest city palace in Germany. It's open to visitors, who can explore its unique architecture and rooms, plus art collections spanning the Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassical periods.

Deutsches Museum

The Deutsches Museum is the world's largest museum of science and technology. It's home to around 28,000 objects from various fields, including Natural Sciences, Energy Production and Environmental Studies.
The Kids' Kingdom is a perfect place for little ones to discover, making the Deutsches Museum an ideal attraction in Munich for family days out.

Pinakothek Museums

Munich's three Pinakothek Museums highlight different periods in art history. The Alte Pinakothek (Old Pinakothek) showcases works from the 14th to 18th centuries, Neue Pinakothek covers the 18th to 19th centuries, and Pinakothek der Moderne is a modern art gallery.
We recommend making time to visit at least one during your trip to Munich, although you can save money when you choose a day ticket for all three Pinakotheken.
