Best Things to do when in Munich…

Landhaus am Schliersee - Munich Re
A walk around the Schliersee is worthwhile at any time of the year. At a leisurely pace, you'll need about two to three hours on the outside and then, depending on your mood, you'll have plenty of other options for spending the day. Either you grab a boat and paddle across the Schliersee or let the sun shine on your nose on the shore. If you're still in the mood for a walk, turn your back on the lake shore and boot up to the ruins of Hohenwaldeck Castle. If you're not in the mood for a circular hike, just walk to the southern tip of the lake and make a detour to the Slyrs distillery. Here you can learn how Bavarian whiskey is made and of course try it. You'll be able to feed yourself a base in the very pretty Lunchery

Garhammer Ski Tours
Pure idyll! Because there is so much snow this year, even the small, beautiful ski mountains go very well. These forest and meadow tours convince with a very special charm, with their lovely character. If you climb up to Aberg (also Abereck) in the Chiemgau Alps, you often have the feeling of being in the middle of a fairytale landscape in the deep snow-covered forest. Also absolutely suitable as a beginner tour!

Augustiner-Keller
Munich Hofbräu is a real institution and one of the most popular beers in the world. However, the Hofbräuhaus am Platzl is also well known. Huge tourist groups come and go here and there are definitely more Chinese than Bavarians represented. So the whole thing unfortunately has a little bit of mass processing. One of my favourite alternatives is the Augustiner Keller at the Hackerbrücke. It is centrally located in the city and offers a rustic ambience with delicious food and a large beer garden. My second choice would be the Löwenbräukeller in the Nymphenburger Straße.

Märchenbazar
The alternative Christmas market Tollwood offers a wonderful ambience and delicious food - I also love the location at the Theresienwiese. Unfortunately, the extremely high prices give the whole thing a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste. On weekends it's so crowded that you have to be very lucky to get a place in the tent. The fairytale bazaar at the Viehhof really surprised me in a positive way: nostalgic circus tents and fairground buildings, delicious food, affordable mulled wine and a decommissioned train carriage that serves as a bar. There is also a free daily programme of music, singing, acrobatics, magic, theatre and cabaret.

Café im Vorhoelzer Forum
For a breathtaking view over the city centre of Munich, thousands of tourists climb Old Peter every day - the tower of St. Peter's Church behind Marienplatz. For the view, the 300 steps are definitely worth it. With good weather you can see from here up to the Alps. Especially during rush hours there is always an unbelievable bustle on the tower and if you want to take a great photo, you have to fight hard for your place. If you'd rather relax a bit and enjoy a great view, I recommend the café in the Vorhoelzer Forum on the roof of the TU Munich. There you can not only see the whole of Munich - from the Frauenkirche to the Olympiaturm to the Alps - there is also delicious food and a great brunch on weekends.

Flaucher
As soon as the first rays of sunshine appear in spring, the whole of Munich feels like a pilgrimage to the English Garden - at 375 hectares, it is one of the largest parks in the world. Here there is the Chinese Tower with its huge beer garden, the wonderful view from Monopteros, the Eisbach wave, the waterfalls near Eisbach and the Schwammerlweiher with its small island. When the weather is nice, however, the English Garden is often like the Oktoberfest and the beautiful bathing places are already completely occupied in the morning. Personally, I prefer to go to the "Isar-Riviera" in summer. The Munich Flaucher stretches from the Brudermühlbrücke over the Tierpark to the southern side of the city border. On both sides of the river there are beautiful green areas for bathing and relaxing. In many places, pebble beaches have been piled up to make it easier to get into the water - barbecue is also permitted in marked areas. Pure holiday feeling!

Eisbachwelle
Already from Prinzregentenstraße you can often see a crowd of enthusiastic spectators. They stand at the balustrade of the small bridge directly at the Haus der Kunst or blare on the banks of the Eisbach between the trees of the English Garden. It was attracted by a popular Munich attraction, the Eisbach wave. It is the most famous of Munich's "standing waves". This is where the surfer scene meets - all year round. While the ride on the Eisbach wave was illegal until a few years ago, it is now legally permitted due to the property exchange between the state capital Munich and the federal state Bavaria. However, only absolute professionals should venture into the water, because surfing is neither easy nor harmless and therefore not suitable for beginners. Swimming is not allowed here.

Olympiapark Biergarten
A beer garden of a special kind is the Olympia Alm. Munich's highest beer garden is located on the Olympia mountain and offers Bavarian delicacies and beer with a magnificent view. There are also regular summer festivals, the dance in May and of course Wiesn parties.
