Last night, friends of mine asked me what there is to do in Munich in a couple of days. Well, I’m new here. I moved from Berlin end of August and started working the day after, nevertheless, I managed to go out a few times and discover a cool part of the city. Without much introduction, here is what you can do if you are visiting Munich for a couple of days!
To start with, here is a google map that I made with many places to see and visit, I will continue to update this list while living here.
Start your day with having breakfast/brunch at Café Vorhoelzer Forum at the Technical Universitat Munich,(Address Arcisstr. 21). It is right next to the museums, and it is in the 5th floor, with a terrace and a spectacular view of the city!
From there, start your museums stroll, Brandhorst, Pinakothek der Moderne, and Alte Pinakothek are around the corner from the cafe. The architecture of those spaces is just as dazzling as the collections of Andy Warhol, Jeff Wall, Max Ernst, and the other guys.
It’s gonna be a lot of walking in those museum, so if you can’t wait to get to the next neighbourhood for your caffeine boost, check out cafe Jasmin or walk a bit further to Sobicocoa, even if it’s your first time there, you will feel like a friend right away.
After that you can take the U2 or tram 27 to Fraunhoferstr in Glockenbachviertel, the ultimate hipsterland of Munich. Take a walk in Fraunhoferstr, home of the cutest gift stores and many vintage furniture shops. What’s even better is all the streets to the right and to the left. Hoover & Floyd is one of the cafes in the inner streets of Glockenbachviertel, go there and order the most delicious hazelnut cheesecake you can ever have!
Depending on what you feel like, either take a walk south again and cross the river to the Frühlingsanlagen, chill by the river and cuddle a bit.. or walk the diagonal street Reichenbachstraße passing by Gärtnerplatz to the Viktualienmarkt near Marienplatz, flowers, spices, cheeses and fresh fruits and veggies. Yummy!
Close to that is Sankt Peter church, where you can also climb the stairs all the way up for another spectacular top view of Munich, and the mountains if the sky is clear.
Then, talk a walk to Odeonsplatz up Residenz street, check out the state opera building, Residenztheater, and rub the noses of the lions by Hofgarten, and then walk back to Maximilianstrasse where you have the option to drop by for a meal in either Nage & Sauge for a menu of delicious and rich salads, or Sushi Bar in the backyard of Maximilianstraße 34.
Keep walking down Maximilianstraße and cross the river, the landscape in all directions is beautiful.
If it’s summer time and the weather is fine, try the sinfully delicious icecreams at "der verrückte Eismacher", then go for a picnic in the Englischer Garten.
For dinner there are insanely many options! Just check the places in the map but here are some names off the top of my head:
It’s also worth mentioning that the concert scene in Munich is way better than the clubbing scene (depending on your taste, of course) here you can find a long list of concerts in Munich!
Last but not least, a collection of articles and guides for things to do in Munich.
