Off the Beaten Path Munich



Description:

Munich is a city so full of things to see and do that it is easy to experience the best of the city's sights without getting caught in a tourist trap. Staying in a quieter area just outside of downtown and doing a lot of exploration on foot make your experience more local and your vacation as enjoyable as possible.

Day 1 - Munich


The Hotel Laimer Hof is a charming family-run hotel with truly exceptional service located outside of downtown at the Nymphenburg Palace. In a quaint little neighborhood, but within a few minutes of the city center by subway, this hotel is perfect to enjoy the best of Munich but stay off the tourist track. Spend your first day exploring the area around the hotel, including Schloss Nymphenburg and the palace grounds and gardens. Have lunch in the cafe, the Schlosscafe Palmenhaus, and try to find some of the smaller museums and hidden pavilions. Since it's outside of the city center, Lowengarten has more locals than tourists but is still a quintessential beer garden. Have dinner and your first Bavarian beer here.
