Day 1 - München, Munich


Hotel Acanthus is great value for its location and amenities. It's on a quiet side street, and the rooms are always clean, the restaurant and bar are good, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The best thing about it, though, is that it's only a short walk to many of the main sights. It's also close to several subway stations for day excursions. In the morning, visit the Theatinerkirche, a massive example of the Baroque style. The artwork inside and out is exquisite. Have lunch and a beer at the Augustiner Grossgaststatten, an example of the traditional Bavarian beer garden, where you'll sit on a huge table in a huge hall and eat, drink, and be merry. Across the street from the Theatinerkirche, take the self-guided tour of the Residenz royal palace, and definitely opt to get the combination ticket, which includes the treasury and the theater as well as the palace, which has been beautifully redone since it suffered major damages in WWII, with incredible decor, art, and furniture. Also make sure to take a walk around the pathways and the pavilion of the Hofgarten, which faces the Residenz. For dinner, Muffathalle has both music and cheap Bavarian fare at its best, from big pretzels to beer.

Day 3 - Munich


Take a walk or the subway into town in the morning, and start with a visit to the Frauenkirche, or Church of Our Lady, full of incredible works of art and one of Munich's most historic buildings. In the warmer months you can climb to the top of one of its two domed towers for a view of the city. Augustiner Braustuben is a smaller version of the typical beer garden with more locals than tourists, but is still full of the usual enthusiasm. After lunch, walk around Marienplatz and the surrounding area, which includes the Ruffinihaus and the new and old town halls. Have dinner at one of Munich's best restaurants, Makassar, with Creole food and very friendly service.

Day 6 - München, Munich


Take the subway north of downtown to visit the Alte Pinakothek museum, one of the world's most outstanding art collections. Although you could spend all day here, just spend the morning, and then grab a snack at the cafe before heading further north to visit the Olympic complex from the 1972 Olympics here. Stroll around to look at the different buildings on the complex, and the Olympic mountain. Also visit the nearby Luitpoldpark (but avoid the expensive cafe) and Bamberger Haus. Have dinner back in town at Buffet Kull, which has delicious steak and other French and Italian dishes but is also great value.
