In order to get the most out of your Munich experiences, I strongly recommend that you start with a visit to the Marienplatz, the scenic heart of Munich. This square is home to the famous Glockenspiel which is played every day at 11am, 12pm, and 5pm and tells stories from the city's history.
I recommend that you visit the Zugspitze, the highest point in the German Alps, located in the Wetterstein Mountains, in order to really experience the beauty of the German Alps. At a height of 9,718 feet, making it the highest point in the world. If you wish to see the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, you may opt to take a cable car or a cog railway up to the summit. It's the perfect way to combine the beauty of the alps with an adventurous activity, allowing you to experience the natural beauty of the alps as well as be able to see as far as Austria and Italy! It has several hiking trails, an observation deck, and even an ice palace to explore at the top.
Taking a walk through the Englischer Garten is a great way to escape the city when you need a moment of tranquility. And the Chinese Tower and beer garden can be found in this rather large park. I recommend grabbing a German beer and pretzel while you are there, I can't promise sunshine, but hopefully, you'll enjoy the outdoors!
If you're interested in history and architecture, I highly recommend the Nymphenburg Palace. This beautiful palace was built for the ruling family of Bavaria, and it's surrounded by well kept gardens. Indoors, you can tour the opulent state rooms and see a collection of porcelain that was made in the palace's own factory. A great option for history buffs and lovers of art.
One of the best ways to see the rolling German countryside is by taking a tour of the Romantic Road. I recommend starting in Munich and heading to Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Harburg, two picturesque towns that are filled with history and charm. Rothenburg is known for its well- preserved medieval architecture and its charming town square. Finally, you can finish your tour in Harburg, an historical town on the banks of the Danube river, with its own medieval castle and beautiful half-timbered houses.
Why not travel in style? Okay, it might not be in style but it is a wonderful way to see the city. Take a bike tour in Munich and see much more in a short period of time, in addition to getting some exercise. You can visit the famous Eisbachwelle and the Olympic Park, for a unique perspective on the city.
Depending on your definition of Art, this may not be up your street. However, Munich is home to some amazing street artists. It's always changing canvas adds a spot of color to the vibrant city. Just a short walk from the Ostbahnhof, you'll find the graffiti tunnel, you can spend hours exploring and admiring the incredible artwork.
