The English Gardens is one of the best urban parks in the world!

Little bit cold and quite expensive (especially the beer)

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I could have probably stayed one less day. There isn't an overwhelming amount of things to see and do in Munich, but I enjoyed everything that we did.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Stay close to the center of the city. Almost everything that we did was very centrally located, and we all wished that we had stayed closer to that area.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Use the subway and buses if you need to - they were great the few times that we used them - but Munich is extremely walkable. Bring some good walking shoes and you may not even have to set foot on public transit.

  • Any surprises?

    I was definitely surprised by how much I enjoyed the galleries in Munich, I say that as someone who doesn't consider myself to be an art fanatic. If you're a big art person, you'll love Munich.

Lodging

  • We stayed in an airbnb on the south side of town in Glochenbachviertel that was very reasonably priced and clean. We didn't need anything fancy, so we were able to find a good deal, but lodging in Munich is generally pricey. Location wise it left a little bit to be desired, as we had to walk a quite a bit to do just about anything. Since we were on a budget, this was fine, but I would recommend staying closer to the city center if you can afford it.

  • We stayed in the same Airbnb for the whole trip - the same comments apply here. The location was even less convenient for this part of the trip, but again, we were on a budget.
