Things to do in Munich

Munich is a top tourist destination in Germany, and for good reasons. Think amazing museums, great accommodation, a vibrant nightlife and natural attractions to fill your itinerary. Start off your Munich vacation at the Deutsches Museum home to a myriad of exhibits that you can be sure to enjoy.

Whether you would like to go back in time and enjoy mining in the past, ancient transport systems and musical instruments, the museum is the go-to place. While at it, enjoy the sheer convenience of high speed internet connection and a kids’ section where the little ones can have fun while you catch up with your emails.

Make your way to the Old Picture Gallery, one of the finest most elegant galleries in Munich, also referred to as art-heaven. The Rubens collection, one of the most invigorating parts of the galleries, and among the largest globally, is popular with visitors. Affordable entry fee makes this Gallery accessible for tourists from all walks of life.

Car enthusiasts will be compelled to visit the BMW Welt, space that is dedicated solely to one of Germany’s most popular products. Her, you can relish the opportunity to view the brand’s most popular cars, the oldest series as well as futuristic cars that showcase unique concepts. If the cars do not wow you, then the blend of style, opulence and perfect charm of the motorcycles will amaze you.

Away from the automobile joy, you can visit the Chinese Tower, a popular beer garden where you can enjoy a cold beer and traditional Munich delights. This is an interesting location for catching up with friends or meeting new ones, all the while enjoying undulating sounds from the musicians on location. Augustiner-Keller is yet another charming beer garden where you should spend some time.

If you would like some peace and quiet, head out to the English Garden, an expansive public park whose edges embrace the city life and stretch to the far northeastern section. This is a favorite spot for many locals, aptly named for its characteristic rolling hills. Look out for the beer gardens, imposing monuments and a placid lake where you can enjoy boating in the afternoon. Alternatively, rent a bike and explore the park to enjoy its flora and fauna.

Munich is home to striking churches that include the dome-covered Church of Our Lady and St. Peter’s Church which is the oldest and tiniest in the city. The latter is popular with tourists since it also offers an amazing opportunity to get panoramic views of the surrounding area. Other places of interest to visit include The Marienplatz Square, the Residenz Royal Palace Museum and the Bavarian State Opera for musical performances.

The best time to visit and enjoy the wide array of fun activities to do in Munich is between March and May. During this period, the number or tourists has fallen significantly, and the weather is fair enough to explore the city. Enjoy your stay in Munich and book a room at the Excelsior Hotel Munich.
