Holidays in Munich, Germany

Holidays in Munich, Germany

The Bavarian state capital is as beautiful as it is understated. This city doesn’t let anyone get bored, not only during Oktoberfest. Whether you want to have fun, see some architecture, experience art in museums, or commune with nature, Munich has a lot to offer.

Preferably start at the Odeonsplatz. Here are the Hofgarten and the Residenz (museum housed in a 14th century palace). While it may not impress from the outside, it’s worth a look inside. There’s no doubt that many of the ornate rooms make you feel like you’re in a fairy tale.

Then it’s possible to visit Dallmayr, a food supermarket with unique delicacies that has existed since the 1700s, which now also houses a two-Michelin-starred restaurant. How about something more substantial? Nearby is the Hofbrauhaus am Platzl, a brewery built in 1589, and a 3-story restaurant serving Bavarian cuisine.

It’s only a 10-minute walk from this restaurant to Marienplatz, the city’s main square. Here you can admire the New Town Hall, a beautiful building with bells. Every day at 11 am and 12 noon the ringing of the bells is accompanied by two scenes played out by figures in the town hall tower. These are the royal wedding in 1568 and the dance of the coupers during the plague . Not far from the town hall there is a place you must visit – St. Peter’s Church. More specifically, its tower. Sure, almost 300 steps lead to the top, but it’s worth it – since no building in Munich is higher than 100 meters, from here you have a stunning view of the entire Old Town and beyond . On clear days you can even see the Alps from here. Another church worth visiting is the Frauenkirche. This cathedral is not only beautiful but also huge (its surface area is the size of a soccer field). Next to Marienplatz is Viktualienmarkt, which is the most famous market in the city. Of course the prices are tourist-oriented, but it’s the perfect place to buy Munich delicacies and much more in one place, among other things you can find fruit from all over the world.

Asamkirchen and Parks

This is another beautiful church in Munich – St. John of Nepomuk, 1746. Richly decorated in Baroque style, it still serves the faithful today, and its history is very interesting: it originated as a private church of two brothers. Only when the bishop found out about its creation, he gave it to the city. The magnificence of this structure can make one dizzy. It is located about 5 minutes walk from the aforementioned market.

Asamkirchen and parks

But the interesting places in Munich are not only temples. It is also worth visiting the Englischer Garten, Europe’s largest city park. It is even larger than the Central Park of New York, its area is more than 4 square kilometers. The garden looks like a forest: a lot of water reservoirs, a river nearby, there are glades with picnic places, and in the northern part there are sheep and horses. In the garden there are small buildings. Among them are a Japanese tea house and a Chinese pagoda with brass band concerts. In the garden you will find a wave for surfers and several places besieged by nudists. Interestingly, in many of the beer gardens you can sit at your table, having ordered a beer in advance, of course . The English garden is of course the most famous, but Munich is a very green city, so you can easily find a place to relax there.

Museums and palace

For those interested in art and history, Munich’s museums and the Nymph Palace are must-sees. In this Baroque mansion you can look at a very interesting collection of paintings, because the most beautiful women of Munich in the XVIII century were depicted on them by order of King Ludwig (a variety of people, from aristocrats to bourgeois women and cabaret dancers). When it comes to museums, the three Pinakothek must be visited. In the Old Pinakothek you can find paintings by Rubens, Leonardo da Vinci or Titian – about 60 works. The New Pinakothek, on the other hand, is a must-see, with the original of Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers on display here. There is also a chance to admire works by Manet or Gauguin. In turn, the Pinakothek of Modern Art has works by Picasso among about half a million exhibits. There is something for everyone.

Olympiapark and BMW

But Munich isn’t just monuments, it’s also sporting history at its best and home to one of the world’s biggest and most famous car manufacturers. In Olympiapark you can walk through the grounds that welcomed athletes during the 1972 Olympics. However, it is definitely worth stopping by the city’s second observation deck on the 190-meter-high Olympiaturm Tower. At the very top there is a revolving restaurant, which offers a beautiful panorama of the city and its surroundings.

Entrance costs about 7 euros. Another interesting place is Olimpiaberg , a hill in the Olympic Village, where in the evenings often gathers young people to drink beer outdoors. Not far from the Olympic complex is the famous four-cylinder building. It is an obvious reference to the automobile engine and is the headquarters of the BMW brand. Next to it stands the BMW Welt, which displays the latest models of the brand, as well as a museum, where all, even the rarest examples of cars under the symbol of the white and blue checkered flag are collected. On the outskirts of the city is another important site – the Allianz Arena, home and stadium of Bayern Munich . With any luck you might run into Robert Lewandowski there.
