Day 1 - Munich, München


Munich's size is not daunting, which presents the opportunity to easily explore by foot. Give yourself some time to get a feeling for the city. It is a charm to walk around, with the hidden treasures of small passageways and cafes if you're willing to wander a bit from the main streets. But begin by familiarizing yourself with these main areas suggested. Marienplatz, besides the main station, is the most accessible location to begin exploring. There you'll be able to walk down one of the heavily populated Kaufingerstraße where talented street musicians perform during nice weather. But remember, the nicer the weather, the more people will flock to the heart of the city. From KaufingerStraße you will arrive at Karlsplatz, which represents the historic entrance to the city center. It has been a pedestrian only area since 1972, making it ideal for shopping. There is a large fountain where tourists and locals can both enjoy themselves on hot days with the moisture blowing in the wind. If you desire to invest in distinct designer wares, walk north from Marienplatz until you arrive at Maximillianstraße. In this pedestrian area you will find the designer shops, expensive cars lounging by the entrances, and fine Italian coffee. Enjoy yourself window-shopping, and consider the wealth and comfort that the town emits. On clear days pay the small fee at St. Peter's to climb up and have a look at the surrounding city. Hopefully you'll even get a peak at the alps. If you've spent your morning walking around there will surely be an appetite to follow. If this is the case, head over to Eat the Rich. What turns into a crowded and posh night scene serves gigantic portions of delicious platters which you should give yourself plenty of time to eat and digest. In the afternoon, explore the area north to Marienplatz. Here you will find Frauenkirche, the most famous landmark. On your short journey north you will pass the Löwenturm, the wide court of Odeonsplatz, and come to Ludwigstraße, which leads to the popular Schwabing and the university neighborhoods. The buildings that line this street are distinctly Italian Romanesques. To get a feeling of what there is a bit outside this main center, make your way west on the S-bahn to Hackerbrüke station, where the Augustiner Keller is nearby. Enjoy local Bavarian cuisine and the most-beloved Augustiner beer in a old cellar. Completely made of red brick, you must take the winding staircase down (there may also be an elevator) into this surprisingly large and welcoming cellar.

Day 2 - Munich, München


Make your way back to Marientplatz to orient yourself for the day. Have breakfast at Cafe Glockenspiel which overlooks the main court, where you can watch others also preparing for their day. After you have regained your energy for the day, make your way to the Deutsches Museum, where you will easily pass the morning. Have a plan for what you want to see. If you are still in the mood for exploring a museum afterwards, enjoy the art at the Neue Pinakothek. The Gaststeig restaurant is cafe style with affordable prices, a nice option of cooked before your eyes dishes, and outdoor seating. On nice days, make your way to the Englischer Garten and observe Münchners enjoy themselves. The garden is large, and with the winding paths you may just find yourself at a beer garten. If you're not in the mood for a beer, try a Radler - a mixture of Augustiner Beer with lemonade. It's popular and refreshing on hot days. If you're ready to experience the much anticipated Hofbräuhaus, set yourself down, order a Maß and some dinner! The restaurant is always lively, and you'll be entertained just with the events going on around you.

Day 3 - München, Munich


For your last day in Munich, give yourself the opportunity to explore a bit further. What would a trip to Bavaria be without seeing the romanticized castles? Schloss Nymphenburg is the biggest baroque castle in Germany. If you're in the city for lunch, experience the Last Supper, or grab a sandwich from the many bread kiosk around the stations. The quality is impressive. The Dachau concentration camp is a stop many visitors have an interest in. Free tours are offered. Interview is a cosmopolitan restaurant by the Opera house. From here, enjoy a look around Sendlinger Tor before you head over to Padres for a relaxing cocktail.
