Day 1 - Munich, München


The Hotel Uhland is out of downtown and in a quiet and beautiful residential area on the edge of a park, yet within a few minutes of the city center on the subway. Spotlessly clean and with a fresh, wide variety for breakfast, this is the perfect place to stay during your family vacation. Begin your exploration of Munich with a trip to the Viktualienmarkt, a huge open-air market with tons of variety of gourmet foods, flowers, spices, crafts, and other items. Kids will love the energy and the opportunity for tasting. After you've had your fill, walk north to the Marienplatz, and get there by 11 am if you're interested in hearing the chimes of the Glockenspiel and seeing the accompanying animation. Either way, you can take an elevator up to the top of the tower inside for a great view of the city. An entire afternoon can be happily spent in the Deutsches Museum, which is the world's largest science and technology museum. It is huge, so be prepared for some walking, but there are incredible exhibits ranging from glassworking to navigation to physics to the reproduction of stone-age cave paintings. With a beautiful courtyard, a large beer selection and Bavarian family fare, Altes Hackerhaus is a great place for your first dinner in Munich.

Day 3 - München, Munich


Begin your day with a trip to the Blutenburg, a castle with an attached church full of late-Gothic painted panels that dates back to the 1400s. For the rest of the day, explore the Nymphenburg palace and grounds, including the Amalienburg hunting lodge, an incredible example of the rococo architecture and decoration style. Other places to visit around the palace grounds are the royal carriage and sleigh collection in the Marstallmuseum, the Magdalenenklause hermitage, and the beautiful botanical gardens. Schloss Nymphenburg itself is a breathtaking palace complex, with incredible gardens and architecture. It's easy to get here and back to the city on the tram. For dinner, head to Gollier, where there is a kid's area and plenty of kid-friendly food.

Day 4 - München, Munich


The gardens and the porcelain at Schloss Lustheim are worth a morning visit, and then have lunch at Trattoria La Bruschetta, where they offer standard Italian fare to please the kids but also have unique Tyrolian-Bavarian-Mediterranean fusion to interest the adults. There are tons of things to do in the Englischer Garten, from biking to boating to surfing, and lots of sculptures, pavilions, and beer gardens. Just to be aware, though, on a warm day there may be people sunbathing in various states of undress. Next, visit the Theatinerkirche, a church with a beautiful facade, full of sculptures, artwork and plasterwork. Hofbraukeller is the perfect dinner place for families, with a separate children's menu and lively music.
