5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Munich Next Time You Are In Europe

Although Munich has quite a few museums, for one that is very different from most museums you’ll find in European cities, I recommend going to the Deutsche Museum in Munich. If you have a day off in Munich, I highly recommend visiting Berchtesgaden and Eagle’s Nest. The castle is now open to the public and you can take a walk through the castle or take a guided tour that should last about 45 minutes. You can also reach the famous viewpoint where you can take that popular photo of the castle from afar.

This magnificent palace used to be home to the former Bavarian royal family and is affectionately known in English as “the castle of the nymphs”. It’s definitely one of the things to do in Munich if you want to explore the amazing local history. Munich’s New Town Hall is one of the most recognizable buildings in the entire city and hotel oktoberfest is worth checking out if you’re on Marienplatz. Much of this is due to the elegant façade consisting of ornamentally carved figures. Now, although we say ‘New’, this Gothic building is more than 100 years old. The park is designed in a classic British style, so expect elegant rose gardens, an artificial lake and lush greenery.

Prague’s exchange points are known as scams, so get your crown before you land. This is the time of the coming year if you have your eyes on the ski resorts of the German Alps. The slopes of Garmisch-Partenkirchen usually open before Christmas, which is also when the charming markets begin to sell gingerbread and sausages in Munich’s medieval squares. Munich is one of those cities that has something to offer, regardless of the time of year. Many people love the height of summer, for the regular sun and temperatures that often rise above 30 degrees in the middle of the day. That’s certainly perfect for strolling around the city and enjoying the large lawns and paths of English Garden.

Real fans can even book a tour to see the arena and training ground. If I’m ever shopping in Munich, I can usually be found here. Yes, it’s crowded and full of popular European retailers, but there’s a reason why it’s so busy! There are many shops in the area to meet all your shopping needs. The annual Streetlife festival on Leopoldstraße is the biggest and best known, but look here for a more solid list. If you want to take a scenic drive that’s right next to all of Munich’s more touristy spots, you should take a stroll along Ludwigstraße and Leopoldstraße.

After Dachau yesterday, you probably need a lighter and more relaxing day today. If you’re in Munich during the hot summer days, there are plenty of things to do while relaxing in the sun. From here, many Jews were sent to their deaths in Poland. The visit to the camp is free, but offers audio guides for a fee. There are a few places in the museum to eat if you want to spend a whole day here.
